I developed Gynecomastia from using Gabapentin 3 years ago, I was prescribed it for nerve pain for what I now have is Ankolosing Spondylitis, after a few weeks from using this drug I developed breast pain and swelling which I reported to my GP, he told me that the Gynocamastia was a side effect and I was switched to Pregabalin, I was told because the Gynocamastia was drug induced it would subside after I discontinued using the Gabapentin, however this was not the case and I now have very large disc shaped glands behind my nipple that are quite noticeable and have not gone away, my GP has discussed this with me and I am told that they need to be removed surgically which is not available on the NHS, it would have to be done privately at a cost of around £4000, as you can imagine I am not a happy at all.
Gabapentin use and Gynecomastia....
I am a 45 year old man, and I am experiencing Gynecomastia taking Gabapentin. The side effects that I have discovered and read online say Neurontin (Gabapentin) can cause Prolactin increase, and breast swelling. I also fearfully read that it can also cause Bladder Cancer. I am assuming this is with long term and high dosage use. I am taking Gabapentin for rectal fistulae pain, and am hoping to be off of this medication quickly once it heals. Any other similar experiences from anyone as far as Man Boobs?
