I take neurotin also, I've gained around 40 pounds since I was diagnosed. But I don't know which prescription is causing it.

I gained fifty pounds in four months on gabapentin. My baby brother gained forty on it and my mom gained 12 lbs in two weeks and refused to take it anymore. So yes it can cause massive weight gain. I'm still struggling to lose it.

Yes neurontin is notorious for causes weight gain, I was also on Cymbalta at the time and gained 10 lbs a month. Nor did it help my neropathy at all. We are all so different.

Are you allergic to just opiate pain meds? As an RN, I know there are other options to help with pain, that aren't opiate based. Just curious.
