Does anyone have experience with taking this drug???? I am worried about side effects and was wondering what if any to expect.  I may need to take it for pain.  Is there weight gain??  diarrhea or constipation??/ insomnia??  Please.. anything?

Wish I could help, prof. First time I hear of it. Is it a diabetes-related drug?

I found a site with drug info and side effects

Neurontin

It appears that the only GI side effects are nausea and vomiting.

It also can make you sleepy if mixed with other meds. The best thing to do when you have questions about a med is to talk to your Pharmacist. They spent all those years in school and love to give helpful answers. Much more stimulating than counting pills all day! LOL!

Most pharmacists are very willing to give out information that will help you with your decisions. Good luck with this prof.
