In Reply to: Weight Loss in Dilantin and Neurontin?? posted by Megan on December 13, 1999 at 21:57:11:
: I am currently on 300 mg. of Neurontin 3 times a day and 200 mg. of Dilantin in the morning and 100 mg. at night. I have lost a lot of weight since I have started taking the drugs. Is that a side effect of these drugs or am I just not eating enough? hehe :)
: I know that a side effect of Depakote is rapid weight gain so I am confused about the weight side effects of these meds. Can anyone help?
Our son took depakote and gained 40 pounds or more. When he came off it and went on dilantin he lost all of it plus more within a month. It leveled off after a couple months. I don't know how long you have been losing. Different meds do different things.
: Thank you....I wish you all well!
