Reactions 1704, p169 - 2 Jun 2018 Urinary incontinence and nocturia: case report An 82-year-old woman developed urinary incontinence and nocturia while receiving treatment with gabapentin [route not stated]. The woman, who had essential tremor, started receiving treatment with gabapentin 100mg twice daily. After second day of gabapentin treatment, she experienced increase in day time urinary frequency with symptoms of urgency and nocturia of up to 6 times/night. She denied any symptoms suggesting urinary tract infection or change in amount of fluid intake. Consequently, the dose of gabapentin was reduced to 100mg at night. However, no improvement in urinary incontinence and nocturia was observed. The woman’s gabapentin therapy was withdrawn. Consequently, her urinary symptoms resolved. Lower extremity oedema was not observed at any point of gabapentin therapy. Her urinary incontinence and nocturia were considered to be secondary to gabapentin treatment. Author comment: "Few cases of gabapentin-induced urinary incontinence have been reported in the literature, however we know that one of the side effects of gabapentin is nocturia". "Physicians should account urinary incontinence as a potential side effects of gabapentin and not underestimate it, as well as to associate gabapentin as a possible cause of sudden urinary incontinence after initiating it."
