2 Replies RSS
For over 20 years I suffer and I really mean suffer from chronic fatigue and restless legs. There is hardly any energy. And life is not very pleasurable. I know that many people do have that problem to. but there is no cure. Thanks Hetty. ## a holistic daughter prescribed my daughter Standard Process Beta Food, and it went away. Also cleanse. There's pill forms. Inquire on amazon for both ## I also have this problem. I don't have the typical restless legs so much as I have the periodic limb movement disorder and never feel rested. I also have apnea and use a c pap machine but it never has made any difference in feeling better. I just started on 300 mg gabapentin but not sure if it is going to help. So far it seems to give me anxiety upon waking. Iron is a huge connection to rest...

Gabapentin for Restless legs or Periodic Limb Movement Disor
Post a Reply
Hello. I have PLMD, which is movement of the limbs all during the night and not going into a deep sleep. Results is that I am always fatigued and never feel rested. I researched drugs for this and this is why I started the 300 mg Gabapentin 2 nights ago. Anyone else on Gabapentin for this and, if so, have you noticed improvement? Night before least I slept okay but woke with horrid anxiety and just felt wiped out. I took it l last night and woke up too early, not feeling rested and took a clonopin. I think it may be increasing my anxiety issues? Anyone?

What Happens If I Take 200 Mg Of Gabapentin
9 Replies RSS
What Happens If I Take 200 Mg Of Gabapentin i need to know i already took it before i knew what milligrams it was i am worried what will happen what mental effects will it have on me???? ## Hi Alicia, Were you prescribed this medication or was it someone else's? I personally don't think you should have anything to worry about as far as side effects go if you only took this one dose. Gabapentin has a half life of 5 to 7 hours. So, for example, if you took 200 mg of gabapentin Monday at 4 PM, 100 mg would still be in your system at approx. 9 to 11 PM. Generally, it can take anywhere from 5-7 half-lifes before the drug is completely out of your system (but you should stop feeling its effects before then). Gabapentin was originally developed for the treatment of epilepsy, and is cur...

Suffering with Gabapentin
4 Replies RSS
I began taking Gabapentin for terrible nerve pain, tingling, and numbness in both legs, from the thigh to the knee, particularly when I'm lying down. I also feel one arm go completely numb when I keep it raised for any period of time. Example: holding up my Kindle to read, or my phone to play Words With Friends. My internist prescribed it for me after I told him the pain was unbearable, and keeping me up at night. The side effects began once I had titrated up to my full dose of 300 mg., 3 times a day, for a total of 900 mg. The side effects were terrible. The dizziness and double vision got worse and worse with each passing day. Some days I was terribly nauseous, and most of the time, towards evening, I developed a raging headache. There were days I knew it was unsafe to drive. I ha...

I am now taking 7 x 300 gabapentin per day and am getting terrible eye problems: double and blurred vision, I am also sufering unnerving confusion, could it be a side effect of the gabapentin? ## It doesn't seem from the monograph listing, that these are common side effects: Gabepentin Side-Effect Info Click Here I would suggest you speak to your doctor and discuss this as soon as possible, it could be this drug, an illness, or a combo if you are taking something else. ## I get blurred vision with only 2 300 Mg's ## I have been taking 2400 mg (eight 300-mg tablets) a day of gabapentin for more than a year.

Gabapentin White Oval 4443 600 For What
4 Replies RSS
WHAT IS GABAPENTIN FOR? I WAS GIVEN THESE PILLS WITHOUT MY DOCTOR'S CONSENT. I DON'T KNOW IF IT'S SAFE FOR MY HEALTH? I NEED TO KNOW BEFORE I TAKE IT. PLEASE LET ME KNOW NOW. THANKS! ## Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. The main issue, if you don't have a prescription for it, however, is that it does not work right away, like a narcotic or anti-inflammatory would. This medication must be taken on a regular basis, for 4 to 6 weeks, to really start having its full effects in the body and help with the type of conditions that I mentioned. Side effects may include: nausea, dizziness, weight changes and dry mouth. Learn more: Are there any other questions? ## Thank you for the info on Gabepentin. I just started ...

alcohol and Gabapentin
139 Replies RSS
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. You can read more on it here: Do you have any other questions? ## what are the bad things with this drug and alcohol? ## I've taken 3600mg of Gabapentin each day for 21 months now! I drink alcohol with them & feel ok. I would just say that the Gabapentin alone will l...

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
106 Replies RSS
i was taking 300 mg neurontin . 1 in am 1 at noon and 2 at bedtime. I was prescribed the med in May of 2013. Increased later when not helping with foot numbness. It has been almost 2 weeks since i tapered myself off of the drug and i still feel nausea in the am which effects my eating. Please advise how long it will take this med to be out of my system. Thank You ## Hi Cindy, Sorry to hear about the nausea you've been experiencing lately. From what I've been researching, in most cases it usually ends up being around 2 to 5 days for this type of medication to clear your system. However because you've been taking it for about a year, I'd imagine your body could still probably use some time to get accustomed to not having it on a regular basis. One study I found mentioned t...

Can gabapentin cause false positive result in drug test for THC??
3 Replies RSS
Hi, Im 37yr. old caucasian male. Im in methadone maintenance, and i have begun slowly taperin off it. I take 90mg methadone, 30mg oxazepam morning only, and now I tried recreational dosage gabapentin (neurontin). I learned, that for fun, its worth of nothing except poisoning own body. Dose of gabapentin was 7x300 = 2100mg. Passive smoke is impossible, and I haven eat any hemp pruducts. I blame that false positive Gabapentin.. can it really be so? ## Hi Deadboy, I am currently in the same situation! I also am treated for opiate dependency at a methadone clinic. The dr at the clinic prescribed me 300mg 3x's a day of Neurontin and I am now testing positive for thc and I DO NOT SMOKE! I have recently quit the medication and I am waiting. This my last drug screen to come back. Thus is ru...

Gabapentin/How long do these stay in the urine???
20 Replies RSS
I was given a couple 400mg gabapentins from a friend for some migraines, I took them but found out that I will be having a drug screen and am worried that these pills can be detected, so please could someone let me know whether or not I'm worrying for nothing or if I have something to worry about, thanks ## If you've given yourself at least a few days, odds are that it's less likely to show up under any sort of urine, saliva, or blood test. What's more risky in my opinion, is the opportunity for a false-positive to show up. Where as it can sometimes show that you took something completely different and then you're left trying to explain yourself. The good thing is since most standard drug screens test for illicit drugs, controlled medications, and medications with a ...

gabapentin side effects rapid pulse from 85 to 105 at rest. Usually 60-70 at rest. ## And how are you feeling right now ? Did you notice these effects every time you took the Gabapentin ? Rapid heart beat is not specifically listed as a side effect of this medication, however there are other side effects which may be related ... such as dizziness, tremor, nausea, blurred vision. Have you had any of these? Medications which have a neurological effect on the body can certainly come with their own complications. Can you talk about any other details of your experience with this? ## The heart rate remains the same, but I feel better anxiety-wise, which is why I was prescribed it. Steill, I', concerned about the increased heart rate. The doctors say wait and see. Thanks ## Yes, I am exper...

Safety of pain killers for long term use

My daughter is disabled, non verbal and has severe self hitting behavior issues. She is blind due to retina detachment. She got multiple surgeries for retina reattachment. She still has silicon oil in her eyes to hold the retina in place. From the last two years she has been complaining about some kind of pain but not sure where the pain could be. She tries to punch her head and ears a lot. She is getting treatment by doctors for pain relief but it is not helping. Right now she is getting gabapentin 900mg three times daily along with Cymbalta, Lorazepam and Trileptal. Only her sleeping issue is a little better but she is still continuously uncomfortable with pain. Doctors think it could be behavior temper tantrum attacks. Is there any other doctor who can advise us on how to improve the...
