Gabapentin Withdraws?

I have been taking gabapentin for almost 2 months now. My doctor gave it to me for migrain head aches, restless leg syndrome and anxiety. I take 300 mg at bedtime every night. About an hour after I wake up in the morning I'm very sick to my stomach which sometimes lasts all day long. I also can not keep my legs still. I bounce them all day. About 3 hours before I go to bed I get very irritated. Once I take my night dose it all goes away. Could this be from the gabapentin? I do also take sertraline 50 mg every morning for my anxiety.

Hello, Sharrie! How are you feeling? I'm sorry about the problems you're having.

It could actually be due to either medication, they've both been known to cause such side effects, as reported by the FDA. However, the restless legs is more often due to the SSRIs, such as Sertraline. Both of these medications can cause mood swings.

Other side effects may also include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain.

Only your doctor can really help you get to the root of the problem, though.

How long have you been taking the Sertraline?

I've been on the sertraline for about 4 months.
