Bad Urine Odor taking Gabapentin

Posted , 3 users are following.

Has anyone had a bad urine odor taking gabapentin? I noticed after I started taking it that my urine would really smell bad. Sorry I know this is unpleasant, but I wanted to see if I am the only one experiencing this side effect. I have been on Gabapentin 300mlg going on 3 months and it's not helping I have diabetic neuropathy in my feet. I think I dont really need to take it if it's not really helping me.

    I had the same issue, it was a Urinary Tract Infection. Since being on Gabapenting, it's the 2nd time I have had infections in my body with absolutely no symptoms. I have learned that Gabapentin makes your body more prone to infections. Go to your doctor for a urine test. Left untreated they can be very dangerous.
