My GP gave me Gabapentin for nerve pain. I have taken it for a couple off months but have put on 9 pounds, had insomnia and depression and mood changes. I read online that these are side effects of this drug. So I stopped taking it. It had not helped with pain in the first place. I seem to be battling withdrawal effects now. I had no idea that this drug could cause so much trouble.
