    DO NOT START THIS DRUG!!! YOU WILL MOST LIKELY SUFFER SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT GAIN! THE INCIDENCE OF WEIGHT GAIN IS HIGHER FOR GRALISE THAN REGULAR RELEASE GABAPENTIN! IT IS LISTED AS SIDE EFFECT AND WEIGHT LOSS IS NOT BECAUSE IT HAPPENS AT A HIGHER RATE! IT IS ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE TO DISCONTINUE IF YOU START SO DONT START! THEY DO NOT TELL YOU THIS WHEN THEY OFFER THE DRUG

    I have neuropathic pain on the right side of my body following a thalamic stroke. I was previously taking Gabapentin 3x per day which was only marginally effective and had side effects of making me groggy and low energy. My neurologist switched me to Gralise, which I only have to take once per day, and it's more effective with no noticeable side effects. Before, on Gabapentin, I would sometim ... Show Full Comment

I dont think its an easy drug to ween off of. Not s ... Show Full Comment
