Gabapentine caused immune system problems for me
| Sledfoot
Was put on small dose Gabapentin for Meralgia Paresthetica (right leg nerve pain). Had a baseline blood test done which was all normal. 3 months later, blood test showed WBC, lymphocytes, and platelets below normal. 3 months later was worse and also had enlarged spleen. Stopped taking it. Was tested for a whole bunch of immune disorders all negative. Next 2 blood tests still showed WBC and platelets too low then finally went back to within normal limits but just barely for all 3 factors. Seems pretty clear the Gabapentin was the cause.
