what is IP102 yellow capsule
what type of drugn is it and can it make you high? ## Hello, Monique! How are you? This capsule contains 300mgs of Gabapentin, which is an anticonvulsant that's also used to treat some mood disorders and certain types of nerve pain, so no, it will not get anyone high. Its normal side effects may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with?

gabapentin and lasix
I'm taking 300 mg of gabapentin three times a day and noticed a rapid weight gain. I think it's mostly water retention and I was wondering if taking one Lasix a day would help me loose the weigh and keep it off and not cause any other catastrophe.

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.

Gabapentin for fibromyalgia
I have been taking gabapentin for one month for fibromyalgia... 500 mg a day...100 mg in the morning 100 mg in the afternoon and 300 mg at bedtime...I want to kniw if I wil have any withdrawal if I stop taking it. ## Hello, Jeannie!

I must say after just using it ones The pain is so much better , what I would like to know are these tabs going to fix the problem or will I jst have to keep taking them. ## Hello, Debbie!

Shoulder and nerve pain with tingling sensation
My mom had a stroke four months ago and she having some pain on her shoulder and hands and some tingling feeling on the left side of her body (damage part of her stroke). Doctor prescribe her with Gabix but did not help at all. WHAT can she take to help her with the pain, she cant sleep well at night.... Can she take Neurogen-E too? Please help. Thank you ## Hello, Larni! How is your mom doing? How long did she take the Gabix and at what dose? That's not an actual analgesic. Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain, but it will take about 4 to 6 weeks to reach its full efficacy level in the body. What else has she tried? Does she take any other medications?

gabapentin usp 400 mg
Can you please tell me if Gabapentin usp 400 mg comes in an unmarked white and purple capsule ## Not in the U.S. All manufactured prescription medications in the U.S. are required to have imprints to enable their identification. The only time a prescription medication would be in an unmarked capsule would be if it were something specially ordered by a doctor and done by a compounding pharmacy and it would make no sense in this case, since this medication is already available in standard doses. That said, they are most likely some type of over the counter product, since they are not required to have imprints and be logged with FDA. Is there anything else I can help with?

gabapentin 300 mg day 2
i started taking this pill yesterday and i woke up today and have had the worst mood swings and panic attacks, horrible thoughts in my head, constant crying i only took two pills and its been about 6 hours since i took the last one should i go to the e.r. ? ## Hello, Smokie! How are you doing? Have things gotten any better? This medication can cause those types of issues as side effects, when you first start taking it, but unless you are suicidal they usually don't require an ER trip. But what happened? Did you continue taking it? Because if they were that bad, this might not be the right medication to help you. Have you consulted your doctor?
