Hello, Jen! How are you?

What dosage are you on?

The FDA classifies Gabapentin as an anticonvulsant that is also used to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Drowsiness can be a side effect of it, along with dizziness, nausea, dry mouth and weight gain.

Memory loss is also listed as a possibility. Have you consulted your doctor? This might not be the right medication for you.
