I recently started taking neurontin and have had worsened depression and actually worsened pain. At first I doubted this was happening, thinking maybe the depression was coincidental and that the pain could not be worse since the med was supposed to be helping. But now I just read online that there have been lawsuits regarding neurotin and suicide, so I guess it can increase depression. Now I am wondering about the increase in pain. I wanted to be sure to give the med a fair chance. I have been taking it for 11 days and just increased to 900 mg two days ago. But it does not appear to be helping pain and is not helping sleep which was the main reason for taking it. So now I am thinking it is time to stop taking it. Unless, I guess, maybe it takes time for it to work and for side effects to go away? Longshot, but who knows? I but am interested to hear if others had any similar experiences.
