    Gabapentin and hair loss

    I was prescribed Gabapentin for my back pain. I was wondering if anyone had this problem. Since I been taking this medication I have been experiencing hair loss. It's literally falling out, I don't know whether the medication is worth taking!!!

    Hi Helenjol,

    I googled the medication Gabapentin, and read the side effects. This medication can cause swelling in limbs, dizzy spells, and sleepiness. There was no mention of hair loss. Everyone is different in their reactions with this medication, so be aware of that. Don't stop taking Gabapentin, unless directed by the doctor. I would ask to switch to another medication if you are having hair loss. I know when I brush my thick hair I get tons of hair on the brush. The hair that is lost should grow back in time. I hope you update on this so we know how you are doing. Call your doctor and let him/her know what is going on with the hair loss.
