Does neurontin cause weht gain? - I have been on this medication for awhile and ever since I started is when I noticed the weht gain and it has gotten much, much worse every year since Esp when we've had to up the dose. I have taken Gabapentin and on the contrary have seen loss in weht which is indeed a reported side effect of the med. I went, did reading, etc and found only this and it really isn't a solid answer, but found that in clinical studies/trials that in regards to fluid retention, in the arms, legs, hands and feet, that happened up to 8.3% of the users. I went through five different sites along with our site and nothing. Feel free to pm with any other questions you may have. I experience the EXACT same symptoms you explained. I have ALWAYS had problems with stomach bloating due to Crohns disease/IBS as well. Since I have come off the gabapentin my weht has slowly been coming down. When you comment on a post, you can't scroll up or down and see the post. My hubby has the tv on and my computer is very slow, so by the time the page comes up to type, I sometimes have forgotten some of the questions I was going to answer. I didn't realize that it causes water retention esp in gut area.
