Gabapentin was working faily well...decreased frequency and intensity. I also see a psychiatrist for mood swings and she put me on lamitcal, 200mg now. My NP from the headache center decided to try going off the gabapentin and see if the lamictal could be both a preventative and a psych med for me, decreasing the amount of medications I am on. I am now all the way off the gabapentin and only on lamictal. My migraines have increased this month (or last month rather). I'm bummed. Gabapentin made me gain weight, and with a history of an eating disorder, it's not an easy thing for me. Is there something similar to gabapentin (also generic) that doesn't cause weight gain? Obviously, if there isn't anything like it, I will go back on the gaba. I realize that...just looking into my options. Thank you for listening.
