I'm currently on a weightlist to see a neurologist at the moment. My family doc has been really receptive to me wanting to try different medications. So currently I'm on 100 mg of Topamax two times a day and 100 milligrammes of gabapentin three times a day with the intention of coming off gabapentin...

Re: Gabapenton weight gain

It's odd because my diet has not changed enough to result in this amount of weight gain.

Re: Topiramate

I'll have to talk with my dr because the weight gain from gabapenton is really the only side effect and it's unfortunate as its been working really well

Topiramate

Has anyone ever been on Topiramate for rls or peripheral neuropathy? I'm on 500mg 3 X a day of gabapenton and it's working great but I have been experiencing unexplained weight gain.

Re: Gabapenton

I'm finding I'm gaining weight on gabapenton. Has anyone experienced this and if so is it from food cravings/overeating or mataboliom changes? I can't figure out why I'm gaining weight I've been logging my cal and I really shouldn't be gaining weight.

Neupro and chronic fatigue

I've been on neupro now for 2-3 weeks. I'm exhausted all the time. I've always gotten tired when I drive but this is different,I've had to pull over in the middle of the day and take a 30 min nap or else I would pass out. I'm pretty sure this is the neupro and not from poor sleep but may be a contri...

Re: Disability tax credit for rls

I agree. I think minimizing it is away of coping. Although it eventually catches up to you.im an extremely motivated person you could even say an over achiever and it kills me that I'm slowed down by my rls

I'm in goose bumps at the thought that someone understands what I'm going through.

My struggle is my ability to discribe how it's effecting me as I've sufferd from this for such a long time that it's kinda become normal. I get so tired by the middle of the week I could practically fall a sleep ...
