Posted by dmc (Member # 5102) on :

maybe weight gain could be the swelling/water retention.

"During studies of the medication gabapentin, up to 2.9 percent of adults taking gabapentin experienced weight gain, compared with just 1.6 percent of adults not taking it. "

good luck

I doubt "occasionally" would be a problem, kayak.

Quoted this from dmc's first link:

"Increased appetite or weight gain (see Neurontin and Weight Gain)"
