gabapentin

Hi, my dog has some nerve issues. She's been limping. On dexamethasone, vet also prescribed gabapentin. I'm nervous about the side effects. Anyone ever give this to their dog ?

My 13 year old dog takes this daily to combat arthritis. According to my vet, it's very safe, and my dog does well on it.
