Re: NEURONTIN Anyone?
I have been on Neurontin since the beggining of October as a treatment for persistent daily headaches. It worked great! I still have my headaches all of the time, but the pain is greatly reduced. But, i have been experiencing some troubling side effects. At first, i was only tired and gained a few pounds. But just recently, I have started to get severe trembling/jerking/shaking/muscle spams in both of my hands, jaw, and neck. When I told my doctor, he didn't seem that concerned about it. But, the shaking is so severe that it is actually painful and the twitches can be easily seen from across the room. They are very exhausting and can almost be compared to Parkinson's disease because they are uncontrollable and constant. Even though my headaches were severe too, I'm not sure if the side effects are worth it. I have also experienced muscle weakness, diarrhea, and trouble sleeping. The side effects are starting to take a toll on my daily life and I don't think it is worth it.
