The obvious is patients who have had a reaction to Neurontin should not take it. Also important to note is that many FM patients are on more than one medication to either treat their FM or comorbid conditions. Please check with your pharmacist, who should have a complete list of your medications, including samples and over the counter medications and supplements. Your pharmacist should be able to tell you if Neurontin interacts with any of your medications.
If you experience any unusual symptoms, report it to your doctor right away.
