Question Have Anybody Tried Neurontin?

I've had 4 seizures this weekend. I've goon from partial to grand mal. I need help!! Now I'm taking zonogran and Neurontin. I'm still believeing in God and know that this is just a test! It will soon be over. There is a Blessing in the Storm!
Do any one know the side effects to this medicine Neurontin?
May God Bless You!!

Zonogran hasn't been having too many side effects so far other than weight lost and I can deal with that. That's probably a blessing in the medicine. What the devil meant for bad God meant for good. But seriously these seizures must go.

Are you consuming anything with high fructose corn syrup, sugar, or fructose in it? What are your partial seizures like?

I also have been on Neurontin for 2 years. The one thing that was stressed to me was to take your meds properly and not to forget to take this one. It is a short lived drug and does not stay in your system long. My Neuro stressed on taking this one properly. I think it is great. I had no problems on it. Best of luck.

My neuro put me on this drug for neuropathy and pain as I am a diabetic among other things. I'm so glad Health Board is here.

I was placed on Neurontin while I was on Dilantin and I had a severe reaction to it. It left me feeling drunk to the point I could not go to work. My doctor said the symptoms were caused by the dilantin, but I'm not so sure. After I stopped the neurontin the drunken feeling stopped.

Many years ago I went from complex partial to also having grand mal. I was allergic to all the seizure meds on the market at the time. Then Neurontin came out. It was a blessing to have. I had no side effects and it helped get the grand mals under control. I think you will like this medicine.
