Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 years ago):
since adding neurontin to my clonazepam, remeron, and clonazepam, I have a terrible sour stinch while passing gas. This odor is worse than any flatulence I emitted before taking the gabapentin. Never in my life. Never. My stools have to be strained out, and when I wipe, there is a gooey mess, so I strain time after time, until I have to settle with skid marks on my underwear. Neurontin has caused me to smell like crap all the time, and I make people sick if gas escapes. For over a year, I have not had a mild smelling fart. I cannot get away with passing a silent fart. The smell is astounding... as potent as a dead body. Has anyone else had potty problems with neurontin or neurontin taken with one of the other meds I listed at the top?
