    Of course, you should make sure your doc gives approval first. I gained 65 pounds when I started neurontin and so far have lost 25 and it is hard.
    Good luck

    I took it for a short while, it was causing too many side effects. weight gain was not one of them.

    Then when I stopped it I weaned off of it slowly.

    The only real side effect I encountered with Neurontin was that I could not tolerate noise of any sort. The boys would get home from school and I would retreat to my bedroom to get away from their chatter.

    I had no problem with weight gain but actually lost 35lb while I was taking it....(do not worry I have now found the 35 lbs I misplaced)
