gabapentin withdrawals
227 Replies RSS
being taken off of neurontin/gabapentin after seven years. crying, anxious, and what no one mentions itching all over! have tried antihistamines, cortizone creams but w/ no relief. ## yes this is normal I went through the same thing. I was on 3600 for eight years. I weaned off very slowly. I started weening off in 2008. I am now down to 400mg and go down about 100 a week. Its so awful ## These types of problems are normal from a sudden withdrawal of any medication that affects brain chemicals, which is exactly what Gabapentin does, since it was initially discovered as an anticonvulsant. Unfortunately, since you were on it for so long, it is probably going to take several weeks for these effects to wear off, though they should gradually improve and lessen in severity. As to the itching, ...

Is GABAPENTIN safe/good/bad with MORPHINE?
13 Replies RSS
Hello. I have multiple pain issues due to generalized OA, neuralgia, bilateral sciatica, trigger thumbs, carpal tunnel, protruding discs, trapped nerves, compression of spinal cord at L4/5, tendenosis, fibromyalgia and chronically inflammed tendon/nerve sheaths. I'm 52, female and in quite a bit of pain and take a few meds that include 600mg GABAPENTIN 3xdaily, which I love and can't do without. I also take dihydra., and naproxin. I've asked my GP for something more/stronger and I want to get MORPHINE at the starter dose of 30mg slow release, to see how I get on with it. My question I'd like to know from users of gabapentin with morphine is how have you got on with them + is the combo safe/good/bad in your experience? I'd like to know how your side-effects have been ...

Fake Gabapentin From Combitic Global?
1 Reply RSS
I recieved 100 mg capsules from Combitic Global. They are not helping my Arthritis at all. I've been taking Gabapentin for years and never experienced this before I lost my insurance. I read a number of messages from customers saying their meds weren't working. Has anyone else experienced this from this company? I won't be ordering from them again-that's for sure! ## My investigation suggests that Combitic Global appears to be a well known drug manufacturer within the region of India. However I think it goes without sayin' that the quality assurance in India versus that of the US FDA regulatory standards may vary significantly. This is one of the biggest problems patients face when opting to not go through a licensed pharmacy that requires a prescription (whereas eve...

Northstar Rx
47 Replies RSS
Has anyone had problems with lamotrigine (generic Lamictal) manufactured by Northstar Rx ## My pharmacy changed my Teva brand of Lamotrigine to North Star brand. Has anyone noticed a difference with the difference switching brands? ## Yes. I take lamotrigine for bi-polar depression. I have found that the Northstar version of the drug doesn't work. I took it and my mood crashed. Then I got back on the Teva made lamotrigine, and my mood stabilized. I believe the Northstar product in effective. Try to get your prescribing physician to write "Teva - DAW" on your script. ## My original Hyzaar was refilled by mail with Losartan Hctz 100 by Northstar and I think I'm having serious side effects that I just now attribute to the bp med. My legs are cramping; hip joints hurt; panti...

Severe Stomach Pain and Trouble Breathing
2 Replies RSS
I am a 25 year old female. I had been taking topamax (25mg in the morning and 25mg at night) for about three months for migraine prevention until four days ago. When I first began taking it I realized that I had a few side effects that were easy to find online. These included dizziness, tingling in the hands, feet, and face, as well as a change in the taste of coke (flat and nasty). I also noticed that the effects of drinking alcohol were exacerbated and led to a migraine each time. But besides those two migraines from drinking I did not have any other migraines, which was the only pro about taking this medication. About a month ago things got really bad for me. I began having severe pain in my upper abdomen on the left side where my stomach is. I also could not eat much since eating ma...

is gabapentin the same as lyrica
3 Replies RSS
I tried gabapentin 300mg. (instead of Lyrica 50mg.) the first time I used it, it made my heart pound so bad I could not use it, could I use a smaller mgs. of gabapentin. I have spinal stenosis, I have diabetes, my legs jumps all over, can't sleep because of it. ## Hello, Betty! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you experienced. No, they are not the same. Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, it is in the same class of medications, but different. Thus, it may work better for you. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight gain and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Your dose isn't high enough for neuropathy. I have taken it for 11yrs and I'm on 800mg 3 times a day. Racing heart ha...

Opioid Withdrawal

I'm confused!!! In this thread, Gabapentin and Pregabapentin are said to be the same drug then someone else says no, they're difference. I CANNOT take Gabapentin as it makes me crazy and angry. Is Pregabapentin going to do the same??? Also is there ANYTHING else anyone can think of to get off of Oxycodone??? I've been addicted for 15 years and a heavy user due to true pain. The last time I ran out I almost died. Can someone please help me with any suggestion other than rehab or Suboxone to get off of this??? Thank you!!! ## Hello, Diva! How are you? I believe you have the names mixed up. They are Gabapentin and Pregabalin, they are both in the same drug class, but are different medications. Both are classified by the FDA as anticonvulsants that have been proven to help with ...

I take 100 ic gabapentin 3 times/day for sciatica. Now I find that my bladder leaks about once a week which is unnerving.

accidental consumption of lamotrigine 100 mg with tramadol
2 Replies RSS
My pharmacy mixed some ZC 80 Lamotrigine pills in with my Tramadol prescription! How does Lamotrigine 100 mg affect someone who does not take this drug? ## The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. If one takes it for a long period of time and suddenly stops, it could also create the risk of seizures, according to FDA reports. However, the most important issue is to bring it to the attention of your pharmacist, so they can correct the issue. How many have been taken? ## I definitely experienced the nausea and dizziness. I do not know how many zc80 Lamotrigine pills were intermixed with my tramadol prescription, but it may have been two additional tablets (total of 3), based on my weird symptoms. I haven...

Gabapentin works right away, but dose doesn't seem enough-after 1 week
8 Replies RSS
This was my first visit to a neuro.. I started Gabapentin on a friday night a week ago. 100MG 3xDay....I felt some relief the first night and the next day (albeit I had some wacky wacky side-effects at first)..... So I call the Dr.'s office and got a doctor who was covering and explained that I started Gabapentin the night before and wanted to increase the dose. The doc said that if I could handle the side-effects to go ahead. So, the next day I started taking 2x100mg capsles 3xDay... and this helped right away even more.. but in 7 days I feel no more improvement.. and a few days ago I asked the Doc who is my Doc if I can increase it further because it was helping but only 40-60% now.. He said I had to give it 2-4 weeks on this dose.... Couldn't the fact that i'm feeling rel...

Neurontin in Recovery
3 Replies RSS
I am in Recovery for 8 years 7 months from a severe opiate addiction. I abused painkillers for nearly ten years. I underwent rapid opiate detox. I was given Neurontin upon discharge for the residual withdrawal to combat agitation, mood swings, irritability etc; After 30 days, the rx ran out and I didn't see the need to refill it. After all, it wasn't giving me instant gratification. However, when I stopped taking it, I began go from crying uncontrollably to dangerous road rage to nearly killing my husband throwing a blender at his head. So I went back on it. I've been on it for almost 9 years. I have never abused it or taken more than prescribed. If anything I've titrated down or taken less but have never been able to get off. Two doctors that know of my history of addic...

Does anyone know if Neurontin shows up as anything on a drug screen? ## No, Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, it is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to be effective at treating certain types of nerve pain, so it is not a substance that is included on drug test panels.
