Suggest Treatment For Pain And Swelling In The Legs
Your symptoms are probably side effects of gabapentin.
Thank you for posting your query.
I am Dr Sudhir Kumar, Neurologist, and would try my best to help you.
I have noted your diagnosis, medication and current symptoms. Symptoms such as tiredness, sleepiness, swelling of legs and imbalance are common side effects of gabapentin. So, it would be advisable to reduce the dose of gabapentin to 300 mg twice daily or lower. If the side effects still persist, then, it may be better to stop gabapentin and try another medicine such as duloxetine.
I sincerely hope my reply has helped you.
I would be pleased to answer, if you have any follow up queries or if you require any further information.
