I have tried this medication but didn't take it long enough to have any bad reactions...but it didn't help with my type of pain either. I did look up the side effects on this product and one of them is swelling of your ankles! Here's what I found...
Neurontin side effects
Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Neurontin: hives; fever; swollen glands; painful sores in or around your eyes or mouth; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Report any new or worsening symptoms to your doctor, such as: mood or behavior changes, anxiety, depression, or if you feel agitated, hostile, restless, hyperactive (mentally or physically), or have thoughts about suicide or hurting yourself.
Call your doctor at once if you have a serious side effect such as:
fever, chills, body aches, flu symptoms;
swelling of your ankles or feet;
rapid back and forth movement of your eyes;
Please give your doctor a call tomorrow if you can reach someone on a Saturday. Otherwise talk to the doctor on call for him this weekend. It's not something you want to mess with or ignore.
Please take care...and let us know how you're doing...
