Re: Began Neurontin and doing better

Hi ladybird
That just goes to show how meds work differently for different people. I could not take the neurontin, but am taking the Topamax and doing great on it. Some people hate the Topamax. I hope it continues to work well for you.
I know that Neurontin does tend to increase your appetite, but it is like a double edged sword...Do I get relief and suffer this side effect? Or not take it and be miserable??
Maybe if it keeps working well then you will be able to find a way to deal with the increase of appetite side effect some way.. Unless you are one of those LUCKY people who can stand to gain a few pounds. I am not and have to constantly watch the scale to make sure it does not go up up up and away.LOL
Good luck and keep us posted.
