    Neurontin kidney damage, love handles, hives, partial onset seizures, diabetic peripheral neuropathy
    After taking 200 mg a day for 5 months I developed hives on my stomach and love handles. The itching is driving me nuts. Anyone else have this and could it be kidney damage at this low dose?
