My therapist is angry I haven't started the Neurontin, as well as the prozac. I have these questions about neurontin. For those that have actaully used these or are using them. Can I expect weight gain with them? I am already 50 pounds over-weight and don't need anymore. Can you stop these after awhile? I mean, is it possible that your body will stop over-expressing pain at some point and you won't need the Neuronitin. Or is it a lifetime thing? Same with anxiety and depression? I have been reading about it and it seems that they start you off with a low dose and most posters said they ended up at much higher doses. How long would it take to notice pain improvement with this drug? Serotonin lift with prozac. And I read something about "peripheral edema" as a side effect of Neurontin. What is this? I have such an aversion to taking all these antidepressants, pain/seizure meds and anti-anxiety drugs. I fear I will have to be on them the rest of my life and I am going to look like a puffy body and eyed mental case. This is so hard...starting these.
