These effects depend on individual sensitivity, and can include nausea, dizziness, diarrhea, malaise, vomiting, headache, dermatitis, dry mouth, etc. Check commonly reported side effects . These can be considered a form of pseudo-allergic reaction, as not all users experience these effects; many users experience none at all.

Pfizer Inc. and FDA notified healthcare professionals of the voluntary recall of one lot (40,000 bottles) of 100 mg capsules of its epilepsy medication, Neurontin, after a manufacturing mechanical failure resulted in some bottles containing empty or partially filled capsules. Patients taking Neurontin to control epilepsy could experience seizures from a missed dose of the product. 100 mg strength capsules from lot #15224V -- distributed in October and November, 2004 -- are included in the recall. The production lot was distributed only in the United States. No other Neurontin lots were affected.
