gabapentin side effects elderly
I am 72 and take 1500mg of Gabapentin along with .125mg of Mirapex for my neuropathy & RLS. Reading these articles make me very apprehensive. Should I have concerns? I don't think the Gabapentin is helping my neuropathy at this point as my feet just scream sometimes & they are painful when I walk.

oblong white pill, split in middle, one side of split has 1 on it, other side of split has 3 on it, other side of pill is blank.
this pill is not quite 3/4" long. My pharmacy substituted it for Gabopentin and when I questioned it they said it was a change of Mfg. I'm leery of it, it is larger than gabopentin and tends to give me indigestion. Please set my mind at ease. Thank you. ## Hello, Sue! How are you? Yes, these are 800mg Gabapentin tablets that are manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals. There may be a different inactive ingredient that could be causing your indigestion. Have you tried taking it with food? ## thank you so much, I feel much better.

gabybentin 400
I wanted to get verication if these pills r stronger then tylonol 3 or 4 ## Hello, Kevin! How are you doing? No, Gabapentin is actually an anticonvulsant that has been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. Thus, it does not work like a regular analgesic, because it takes several weeks for it to reach its full level of effectiveness in your body to alleviate pain. The Tylenol contains Codeine, which will start to alleviate pain shortly after you take it and which is an actual narcotic analgesic. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns?

if gabybentin 400mg are stronger than a tylonol 3 or 4
What is stronger medication a gabybentin or a tylonol 3 or 4 ## Hello, Kevin! How are you? I think you are misunderstanding what Gabapentin actually is, because it is not a regular analgesic. It is actually anticonvulsant that can help with some types of nerve pain, but it will take 4 to6 weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in the body. Thus, it does not work like an actual analgesic that can alleviate pain within minutes of taking it. Thus, the Tylenol 3 or 4 is stronger, because it is an actual analgesic that contains Codeine coupled with Acetaminophen. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

GABA DICL CREAM
Does cream actually go through your bloodstream. I have taken Gabapentin in the past which started out oksy for a while but then I had an issue with it & went off the pill form of the medication. I was told since it doesn't go through your bloodstream that the cream should be fine. Please let me know what you think and also if you lnow its true about it not going into your bloodstream and causing any of the same side effects as the pill form. Thank you. ## Hello, Diane! How are you? A little does, but just trace amounts, not any significant amount that should cause side effects or reactions. Most of the reactions to these topical creams are limited to skin irritation wherever you applied it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you, that helped me quite a bit! There ...

alcohol and Gabapentin
Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic. These can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema.

gabapentine for finger and elbow pain only in prone position
Pain only occurs in prone position, Numbness in the fingers and intense pain. Pain also affects elbow and arm ## Hello, World Cat! How are you? I am sorry that you're suffering such pain. Since it only occurs in a prone position, that leads me to suspect that a nerve might be getting pinched, when you position yourself like that. Rather than using a medication, it could be treatable with medical intervention, such as physical therapy to reposition it, so it no longer occurs. Has your doctor prescribed the Gabapentin for it? It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight changes.

How Long Does Gabapentin Stay In Your System
how long does gabapentin 900mg stay in your system? ## Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain and mood disorders and, as such, it is not a substance that is tested for on standard drug tests. However, the half-life for your body to process it out is from 5 to 7 hours and total elimination time is usually 5 to 6 half-lives, so you'd be looking at 30 to 42 hours for it to be processed out of your body entirely. Learn more Gabapentin details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a drug test this afternoon n i took a 300mg gabapentin last night...will i pass a urine test today... ## I know it's late but gabapentin is not a controlled substance therefore is not tested for on any drug screenings. ## I have be...

Severe knee pain tried everything and no doc will prescribe me pain pills but their the only thing that has worked
I have had two surgeries on my knee. The last surgery had left me with nerve pain in my knee that runs up and down my leg. I have gone to too many doctors to count and have tried everything they have prescribed for me (from stretching to acupuncture to taking Gabapentin and thing like it) but nothing helps except 10mg oxycodone. The pain is horrible and sometimes the pain will last for weeks. I can't concentrate in school or even sleep. The only thing that has helped is the oxycodone but I'm 24 years old and no doctor want to prescribe it to me because they think I'm to young. Does anyone know if a doctor in San bernardino area that will help me?? Being in severe pain and not sleeping for days at a time is making me go crazy! ## Nerve pain is treated really well with Lyrica....

gabapentin tolerance
I have been on 300mg gabapentin for 4 years--never more--same dose the whole time. Can I start having withdrawal symptoms if the dosage remains the same? ## Hello, Gizmo! How are you? No, generally you shouldn't experience withdrawal symptoms, but the medication may start to lose effectiveness, so it may not work for you as well as it used to. What types of symptoms are you experiencing? ## I am doing okay. I am 33 months off of 1mg Xanax and 18 days off of 150mg tramadol. Just got worried about gabapentin reaching tolerance.

gabapentin
## has anyone had any problems with taking this drugs?I was given the drug for restless legs. ## I take 300mg. and have memory loss, tiredness so bad I'm not sure I want to continue taking it.The doc. wants me to try another drug to give me some umph.
