Margareta Says:


I'm taking 300 mg of gabapentin three times a day and noticed a rapid weight gain. I think it's mostly water retention and I was wondering if taking one Lasix a day would help me loose the weigh and keep it off and not cause any other catastrophe.

Hello, Margareta! How are you?

With the possible risks associated with such rapid fluid retention, it would be best to have it checked out, rather than trying to treat it yourself. It does have the potential to lead to congestive heart failure.

How long have you been taking the Gabapentin? It can also just cause regular weight gain and not just fluid gain.

Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness and mood swings.

The drug made me pile on the weight and my tummy hammed it on. I was frighted to eat. I would try and come off of it and try another, not gabapentin which is a horrible drug.

I also had rapid weight gain with gabapentin, 10lbs. on the first week I was on it. Coming off this drug cold turkey caused me to have so much anxiety I had to start taking it again. This is an awful drug and I long for the day I can stop taking it. My blood sugar evaluations are up because of the weight gain and I can't take lasix with it, which I need because I have heart failure. I wish my dr. had never prescribed it for me.
