Gabapentin Dizziness Causes and Reviews


When you're dizzy, you may feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. If you feel like you or the room are spinning, you have vertigo. These feelings may make you lose your balance.

Dizziness can have many different causes. A sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated can make you dizzy. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Certain medicines and problems with your inner ear may cause Dizziness. So can motion sickness. Sometimes Dizziness can be a symptom of other disorders.

As people get older, they may have more health problems and take more medicines. This makes them more likely to have problems with Dizziness and balance.

Dizziness usually gets better by itself or is easily treated. If you are dizzy often, you should see your health care provider to find the cause.

I have Dizziness

Thu, 10 Nov 2011

I was prescribed 900 mgs. of Neurontin three times per day by my surgeon because of leg pain and back pain five months after a double fusion surgery (redo of lumbar L4-L5/S1) and a decompression of a pinched nerve. The doctor said that I now have indication of scar tissue and inflammation in the nerve in my right leg which has been my problem for almost four years. Although the pharmacist said that that was a very high dosage and I am a smaller woman--110 lbs., I took it with the 600 mgs. plus a cut one to make 900 mgs. After the fifth day, I was so dizzy, I could not stand up. My husband took my blood pressure and it was very low the whole day. I have gone back to 600 mgs. three times/day but my surgeon said that could not have caused my problem. Since getting off of the 900 mgs., I have not had the Dizziness, except when I bend down.

I also have had no success with a number of antidepressants that I have tried through the years. I have been on Neurontin during most of that time. Could Neurontin have an affect on the efficacy of the antidepressant? I have also become suicidal so I am off of the latest antidepressant. Now I feel irritable and so sad that I cry all the time. I don't want to go back on another antidepressant, but maybe the Neurontin is the problem. I am just confused and miserable. HELP!!

Fri, 11 Dec 2009
I take 1200 mg of Gabapentin per day for non-diabetic neuropathy. It definitely works for the pain, but its side-effects of drowziness and Dizziness are too much. Is there anything else that I can suggest to my doctor that might be as effective, without the negative side-effects?
