Constipation, smelly gas, runny stool
I began having neck and back problems June 2009. I progressivly have gotten worse. The current medicines I am on, deaden the pain, but never completely relieves it. I was prescibed Neurotin Jan. 2011. It was a miracle for me. I felt better than I had in years. The burning, stabbing, and most of the tingling sensations were GREATLY reduced. However, I was married Nov. 2010. In Feb., we began having problems. He would do things that would just drive me insane! Make me so angry. He divorced me one year later, Nov. 2012. My very best friend in all the world called me today and we were talking. Her doctor just recently tried to put her on neurontin. She researched it, and told me she thought I should stop taking it because of some things she had read about it, and because of some changes she has noticed in me. I have a 21 year old son, and I was on the phone with my friend one day, my son did something, and I "went off" on him. My friend has said that she has noticed a lot of changes in me. I have NEVER treated my son or anyone like that. Plus other behaviors I have displayed, including contemplating suicide in Dec-Jan. I thought it was my husband fault because of the things he had done. But my friend reminded me that my ex-husband had done a lot worse, and I never reacted this way. She said her and her husband had been talking about it for a while now, and now she believes it is the medicine. I just wonder what is going on.

- I get shaky in the am after using the drug the night before
Does Gabapentin and Depakote have the same effect or does Gabapentin have a little less effect than Depakote where gabapentin makes you shake rather than not make you loose weight?
