    Neurontin

    Suzin

    About a year and a half ago I started having some neuropathic pain. My doctor started me at 900mg per day which was not terribly effective. She then doubled my dosage which resulted in my feet swelling to the point that I could not get my shoes on. When I reduced the dosage the swelling went down.

    Although I found that Neurontin did contribute to swelling in my feet, I have found that I did get some swelling anyway relating to my injury. For that I presently use compression stocking which help quite a lot.
