They help me to cope with stress and agitation in my daily life.

I have been on Gabapentin 600mg, for 2 years and my hair was very thick before I started taking it and now I have lost half the hair on my head. It has thinned out so extreme. It took me awhile to figure out it was the Gabapentin. But when I went back and remembered when I started taking Gabapentin I realized my hair loss started a few months after that. No other changes in my life, diet, or anything else. It is definetly the Gabapentin. I am slowly weening myself off of it. I am so very upset and devastated. I wish I had realized it was the Gabapentin sooner. I just pray that my hair starts to come back after I am totally off of it.

Hooray for Gabapentin
After Cymbalta and Lyrica totally disagreed with me, Gabapentin saved my days. It took some dosing experimentation but now 1200 mg in the early evening silence all my issues and with no side effects whatsoever.

Chest pain,migraines almost vanished from Gabapentin
Sever chest pain, hand numbness, migraines, and insomnia. DV victim and trauma to the temporal lobe 3 yrs ago. Started Gabapentin and within an hour all of it went away....but i was forgetfulthe first week i locked myself out of the house twice. 3 weeks of 3/day intake i got lock jaw for two days, ignored it and kept taking and my body adjusted to it and im happy i have nothing keeping me back from my kids energy. I found it makes me drowsy if i dont eat for awhile and my stomach goes empty. No weight gain, no bad side effects, no mood swings or depression. Im 28yrs old,100lbs,mom of 3.Just hope i can find a cure for whatever got injured so im not a med taker.
