behavioral changes in some children taking the anticonvulsant Neurontin (gabapentin)

Physicians are now reporting behavioral changes in some children taking the anticonvulsant Neurontin (gabapentin).

Neurontin is only approved for patients over age 12. But neurologists often use it for younger children with intractable seizure disorders.

Some of these children are developing severe behavior problems...hyperactivity, aggression, temper tantrums, etc. This is similar to the problems that are sometimes seen with phenobarbital.
