    You are not crazy, it IS the neurontin. Stop it now. Go back to your physician & refer him to this site. The physicians need to know what the real problems are with this drug. Good luck

    I blew up like a balloon and I don't need the extra weight on my joints. Not to mention I have been avoiding looking at the mirror because I am so upset. Its great for the pain, but how can all this weight be good for my joints? NOT!!!!
