Cold hands & feet with Neurontin

Question

Last month I increased my dose of Neurontin from 300mg (3xdaily) to 600mg (3xdaily). I'm experiencing colder than usual hands and feet. Is this a side effect from the increased Neurontin and are there other alternatives? Thanks.

Answer

It is hard to answer that question without details regarding such issues as your HIV status, HIV meds, whether you smoke, age, whether cold temperatures aggravate the condition, etc. Neurontin by itseld doesn't usually cause the feet/hands to feel cold. KH
