time line for side effects of gabapentin

Postby canton » Sat Feb 03, 2018 8:59 pm

I have just started taking gabapentin for RLS and PLM. I have had some chest pressure feeling and lots of fatigue. Do the side effects of gabapentin get less with time ? What is the timeline - if any?

Fatigue is very common and likely will get better. Many of us still have some fatigue that never goes away.

You should not be having chest pressure. Call your doctor ASAP. Chest pressure can be a sign of heart trouble.
