How Long Does Gabapentin Stay In Your System
60 Replies RSS
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. ## I have been taking gabapenton for about three months. Can th...

alcohol and Gabapentin
82 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!

what is epleptin used for
2 Replies RSS
I have been using Zanor SR 0.5mg for Anxiety and now my psychiatrist has given me Epleptin 100mg to take and so I am taking both Zanor and Epleptin in the morning and Epleptin again at night. My Dr wants to try and get me off Zanor as it is addictive but feel like since I have been taking Epleptin with the Zanor I have felt more anxious and was feeling much better without Epleptin. Dr says I must stay on it until I see him in 3 weeks time but don't know if I can handle it. Can Epleptin have this effect on a person. ## Hello, Karen! How are you?

this may sound a dumb question but is pre gabapentin the same drug as gabapentin ## Hello, Ema! How are you? I think you may be confusing the name of two medications, Pregabalin and Gabapentin. They are both anticonvulsants that are also used to treat some mood disorders and certain types of nerve pain, but they are two different medications. The FDA lists their typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

I'm on 3000 mg a day and have been for 6 months for back pain. It affects me in various ways...forgetfulness, agitated but it helps with pain, is anyone else on this dose? ## That's the highest dose I've ever seen. I'm on 1200 mg and have a lot of forgetfulness that it worries me. I'm also very " whatever " about things. Don't care to workout. Just sad. ## Hello, Lisa! How are you? Yes, doses this high are not commonly used, anymore… though they were back when this medication was new to the market and the reason the higher ones aren't used much anymore is due to the issues you and Heather have stated. There is also a risk of your experiencing a seizure, if you miss a dose or stop it suddenly. Other typical side effects, as listed by the FDA may ...

Gabapetin - sore throat - throat irritation
3 Replies RSS
I have been on Gabapentin for 2 years for diabetic neuropathy, building up to 300mg x 3 times daily. Six months age I started getting a sore and burning feeling in my throat, which causes me to continually cough to clear my throat. I have had a camera down my throat and nothing bad showed. An x-ray showed I had some fluid in the base of my lungs -could this cause the soreness as well as the persistent cough? I tried reducing the Gabapentin to 200mg x 3 times and the cough eased a lot, but the nerve pain got worse so I increased it again ## Hello, Pamopal! How are you? I'm sorry about the problem that you're having. Yes, it is most likely from the fluid, the cough and throat clearing could be what's actually causing the soreness. Gabapentin can also cause dry mouth and throat...

is gabapentin the same as lyrica
1 Reply 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.

Gabapentin and kidney damage.
1 Reply RSS
Been taking doctor prescribed gabapentin for nerve pain for 2 months. I take 2 300mg before bed as it makes me too sleepy and off balance during the day. I am very concerned about internal organ damage. How much water need I drink to flush this drug out of my body quickly? I would appreciate as much information about this as possible. Thank you for your time and reply. ## Hello, Okji! How are you? Water will not help it to process faster, it will still retain the same half-life as always. The trick for kidney health, however, is to make sure you drink enough fluids to keep your kidneys functioning properly and to see your doctor immediately, if you notice any change in urine volume, have difficulty urinating, experience pain or burning while urinating or any other unusual symptoms. The ...

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 ?

I have been on gabapentin for two years now. I am on 800 mg 3x daily. I was put on this due to severe facial pain due to severe trauma to my face in a car accident. My face slammed into the dashboard. My question is how long can gabapentin continue to work for me? I can not live in the pain I had before taking gabapentin. Drs. are so frightened to write me any pain meds, such as fiorinal with codeine when I have a break through of severe pain in my sinuses. I have been operated on my sinuses 4x since the accident. My nose no longer functions, therefore extreme pain. Neurologist not able to do much because I am on Prozac and Notriptyline for anxiety and depression. I just want to know from studies, how long can I live semi pain free on gabapentin. I have gained 25 lbs. Went from 100lbs t...

MY DOCTOR HAS ME ON GABA 600MGS 3 TIMES A DAY BUT IT DOESN'T SEEM TO BE HLPING WITH THE BURNING. COULD YOU PLEASR TELL ME IF THIS WOULD WORK. ## Hello, Terri! How are you? I am very sorry about the problem that you're having. Has your doctor prescribed this? It is just various medications compounded into a cream to be used topically, but most of them have not ever been proven to be effective topically. And since you are already taking oral Gabapentin, you would need to check with your doctor before using this, since it also contains it. How long have you been taking it? It is not an actual analgesic, so it will take 4 to 6 weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in your bo...
