Gabapentin & IBS


Does anyone take this and has it affected ur ibs? I have gone through the relief of a more settled period thanks to amitryptaline but iv recently been started on gabapentin for back pain and just this last week my belly has been really up and down with a return of diarrhoea. Not sure if its just an episode or if it may be the gabapentin. Any thoughts?xx

I have just been put on gabap entin for sciatica. I have also had diahorrea so I have stopped taking it. But I am also thinking that the nerves in my back might be affecting my bowel. As usual I don't know what to think!
