can you take gabapentin with suboxone
3 Replies RSS
Can you take 300mg dose of gabapentin with a piece of suboxan strip about 2mgs want to know before i mixed both. ## Hello, Jen! How are you? I didn't find any problems or interactions listed between these two medications, so that should fine, as long as your doctor approves and it's always best to double check such information to be sure. The FDA classifies Suboxone as an opiate that is most commonly used to treat drug addiction, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Gabapentin may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I was prescribed gabapentin and suboxone together by my dr.i ended switching to lyri...

Gabapentin/How long do these stay in the urine???
14 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 ...

Why can't you take gabapentin with suboxone
1 Reply RSS
My doctor told me if you're on suboxene or subutex it's not a good idea to mix it with gabapentin. Why is this because I was taking gabapentin for 15 years ## Hello, Tessa! How are you? It is due to the depression of the central nervous system that can occur, when they are taken together, according to the FDA, it could result in respiratory distress, coma, respiratory failure, heart failure and possibly death. It is just best to avoid the combination, if other choices are available. Is there anything else I can help with?

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
98 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...

Where can I find a pharmacy that carries Amneal Gabapentin?
Post a Reply
I have been using generic Amneal Gabapentin 300 mg for years. My pharmacy no longer carries it. Are there any pharmacies in North Central Pa or near Corning NY that carry this brand of Gabapentin? I have tried other generic brands, but can't take them due to chronic migraines that they set off. I am a retired physician.

alcohol and Gabapentin
121 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!

5 Replies RSS
Been off Gabby for 5 weeks. Feeling pretty good except still have tightness in chest off and on. Anyone else have chest pain? Was on high dose for quite a while. Got off it too fast. ## Hello, Sandy! How are you? You should have this checked out by your doctor to be safe, there are many things that could cause chest pain and some of them are very dangerous, such as heart conditions. The typical withdrawal effects of Gabapentin are listed by the FDA as possibly including nausea, dizziness, fever, chills, rebound pain, depression, anxiety, seizures and diarrhea. There's a chance the chest pain is associated, but after 5 weeks, most symptoms should be gone. Are you any other medications? ## Just B P meds! Not really a pain more of an ache. Not bad and with all the other withdrawals it ...

gabapentin/dark spots

I'm taking gabapentin 300. I've been on it for the last 5 years to help decrease my rsd pain. I've met several other woman who use this drug and who have experienced the same side effect of causing dark spots on their cheeks. Is it the gabapentin causing this? I'd really like to find out, because, I had lost my insurance for 5months and was off the drug. To my surprise, the dark spots lightened up all the while I was off of it. Now that I am able to see my Dr. again, he wants me to start taking this drug again. Is their any medical research study shown that gabapentin causes facial dark spots. ## Hello, Honey! How are you? Yes, the FDA does list skin discolorations as being a possible side effect of this medication, along with headache, dry mouth, nausea and weight gain....

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.

prescribed gabapentin for fantom tooth pain. started at 100 mg for 5 days then upped to 200 mg. after 4 days at 200 mg started having constipation and lower back and side pain. At the fifteenth day I dropped the dose back to 100 mg and would like to get. completely off it. How should I proceed. ## Hello, Joel! How are you? The FDA classifies Gabapentin as an anticonvulsant that can also help with certain types of nerve pain, so it's not addictive like a narcotic would be and after only 15 days at such low doses, you can most likely just stop it, as long as our doctor approves. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Vermon, Thanks for the information.

Anyone have cervical spondylosis from c1 c2 spine tumor?
1 Reply RSS
I had a hemangiopericytoma removed from my cervical spine about 6 years ago and have had nothing but problems since. I can barely move my neck, have terrible cervical headaches (occipital mainly) and cannot find relief. I have tried the gamut of pain meds, nerve pills and muscle relaxers, with no success. Tried all the therapies, alternative options and am at "my wits end". I am on Gabapentin currently and cannot stand the weight gain, dumb feeling and irritability. HELP?!!! ## I am so very sorry about how miserable you are, that's terrible. Are you seeing a specialist, such as a pain management specialist? In some cases like yours a spinal stimulator, or implanted drug infusion machines might help, according to the NIH and many will try them, once other options have been ex...

gabapentin why are people withdrawing from this drug
1 Reply RSS
I have just done withdrawals from a Dopamine drug that I was using for Restless Leg Syndrome. Now I have been started on Gabapentin and I see so many forums and comments from people withdrawing from this drug. I'm feeling concerned now and can someone tell me the reasons for not wanting to use this drug? Is it because you've found something that works better, or, were you having nasty side effects, or, anything else that I should know?. I'd appreciate finding out everyone's story and thanks very much. ## Hello, Katy! How are you? It really depends on the person, so the reasons may vary. Not every medication works for every person that tries it and, if it doesn't work, there's no point in continuing it. Conversely, it can cause seizures in some people, mood swings...

Kicking Gabapentin, Flexeril or Opioids. How to sleep again.
Post a Reply
I've been so strung out on Gabapentin and Flexaril, which severely affect your sleep. I found a little something which is a blessing. Chloral Hydrate. It comes from China. This drug will get you to sleep fast and you'll stay asleep. Just 2-3 grams a night and you're out like a light. I was able to get off Gabapentin and Flexeril, both drugs that ruin your sleep. The crystals dissolve in water. There is no hangover. It tastes like s*** but I just chase with water. Do not abuse this drug or you'll be sorry.
