alcohol and Gabapentin
50 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...

buzzing in head
2 Replies RSS
I have been taking 300 mg of Gabapentin for the past eight months and I now have a very bad buzzing in my head. It has been getting worse in the past couple of months. I quit taking the drug for five days but it didn't seem to matter. ## Hello, Bordy! How are you? Tinnitus has been reported as a possible side effect of Gabapentin, as listed by the FDA, along with nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, good swings and weight changes. Have you consulted your doctor? You may need to switch to a different medication to see if it goes away. They may also want to evaluate your hearing, to see if the problem is due to the medication or something else. Is this the only medication that you take? ## This is my only medication. Thank you for the response.

effectiveness long term?
1 Reply RSS
I was just put on the gabapentin 100mg 3x daily for severe leg and hip pain. I also take tylenyol with codeine at night. Do the side effects wear off of drowsiness/dizziness? My pain comes from spinal stenosis of the lumbar, and osteoarthritis. I am hoping this will will be a long term fix as nothing else has been. I am still in need of working and have not been able to due to all my ailments. ## Hello, Debra! How are you? Yes, such side effects are usually transient and should taper off, eventually going away entirely, once your body gets used to the medication. However, if your dosage is raised in the future, you should expect to experience them again for a few weeks. You may also experience dizziness, dry mouth, weight changes and mood swings, as listed by the FDA among its common si...

Gabapentin-Nerve pain in legs because of Spinal Stenosis
3 Replies RSS
I have been reading some of the discussion threads and really would love your advice. So back in 2012 I slipped two discs with one that had a tear and I have spinal stenosis. Had wonderful docs that helped me get back to some since of normalcy. I had used Gabapentin for a period of time, then came off of it once I had an injection for my right leg nerve pain and numbness. Just a note, I have never been 100 percent probably not even 75 percent. There were times when the pain in my back was so bad, I would would just be angry. A second MRI was done last year and they told me I was not a candidate for surgery and gave me other suggestions like yoga, etc. That proved to be more harmful then good. Through it all I have tried to maintain some sort of life style and dealt with the pain with Ic...

How Long Does Gabapentin Stay In Your System
30 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 therefore is not tested for on any drug screenings. ## I have be...

Is the gelatin in gabapentin from bovine or porcine? ## Hello, Donna! How are you? What are the markings on the capsules in question?

Gabapentin is classified by the FDA as an anticonvulsant that is also approved to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders.

is it ok to take 500mg methacarbam and 100mg gabapentin together
1 Reply RSS
I ran out of my tramadol was wondering if could be take the gabapentin in its place with my methacarbam muscle relaxants ? ## Hello, Slo! How are you? Gabapentin is not an actual analgesic, so it won't work like the Tramadol. As classified by the FDA, it's actually an anticonvulsant that can also help with some types of nerve pain and some mood disorders, but it must be taken for 4 to 6 weeks, before it will reach its full level of efficacy in the body and alleviate pain. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight gain. Tramadol, however, is an opioid analgesic that carries the risk of being habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, dry mouth and constipation. Methocarbamol is a muscle r...

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
19 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...

corn starch fillers
1 Reply RSS
Gabapentin 300 capsules do they contain a corn or soy fillers or binders ## Hi Brenda, Because there are a number of manufacturers who produce this drug (e.g. Actavis, Pfizer, Teva, etc), you would need to provide us with the exact imprint on the capsule in order to determine if "your specific capsule" of Gabapentin contains such ingredients. Just at a glance, I did see that both Actavis and Pfizer's 300mg Gabapentin lists corn starch as the second inactive ingredient used in its composition, but nothing in particular that mentioned soy. I hope this helps!

6% Gabapentin crème

My wife needs 6% Gabapentin in a neutral crème. Do you know where I can fill a prescription for this in a tube. The local pharmacy compounds this for her but charges too much. She has vulvydenia and uses this to reduce pain. Thanks ## Hello, Look I use Gabapentin Crème. Your doctor can give you samples and find you a pharmacy that accepts your insurance. I know the crème is not cheap but thank GOD my insurance covers mine. I use a compounding pharmacy in Las Vegas by the name of PinnacleRx. They are very nice and chances are they would send it to you after providing them with your Dr's prescription. Address: 4445 S Eastern Ave, Suite B Las Vegas, NV 89119 Phone: 702-534-0847 Mention my name, Daisy C. Good Luck. :D

white oval pill with nt 151 on it ## Hi Jean, From what I could gather, the pill you have marked NT 151 is in fact Gabapentin, which is used for neuralgia, seizures, restless leg syndrome and more. This particular pill reportedly contains 800mgs of Gabapentin to be exact. For added verification, it is manufactured by a company called Allied Pharma, and carries a National Drug Code of 76267-150. I hope this helps!

methocarbamal 500 mg
1 Reply RSS
Can i take 500mg methocarbamal and 300mg gabapentin and what are the side effects ## Hi babygurl, According to's drug interaction checker, there are no interactions listed between Methocarbamol and Gabapentin. However, cross referencing this on other webpages has brought up a notation about Methocarbamol and Gabapentin potentially causing an increase in certain side effects, such as an impaired cognitive function, dizziness, and drowsiness. Other than that, it seems to me like there shouldn't be any complications outside of their own individual list of side effects. Furthermore, in the event that you ever did experience these side effects (knock on wood) you can always work with your doctor on developing a dosing schedule that helps minimize this risk of interaction betw...

I don't understand how gabapentin is prescribed for my acute chronic fibromyalgia, when the consultant tells me they don't understand fibromyalgia should he be prescribing medication on a condition "no one fully understands"? after taking my very first pill this morning an hour later I feel drunk as a skunk! I'm a mother to two young children 7 & 5 yrs old, should they have to put up with sleeping mum or drunk mum? so far I dont like gabapentin! ## I have seen posts to gabapentin as the demonic drug. I have to agree whole heartedly with that. My dr put me on it for nerve damage over 4 years ago. He had me on 600 mg 2x a day. I stopped it in January of 2011 and suffered for 7-1/2 months severely with depression, sucidal thoughts, anxiety, every awful feeling a per...

I have been taking Gabapentin 600mg. in a light green oval tablet for 6 mo. for neuro pain. Each morning with no side effects.

I take Gabapentin 600mg 3 x a day & its not getting me thru the night(I am taking 3 advil 200mg once around 10pm & during the night as well) Am I at the limit for gabapentin or is there something else that might help me? ## Hello, Alan! How are you? I'm very sorry that you're in pain. You should definitely speak to your doctor, it might not be the right medication for you to handle your pain. There is also a risk of stomach damage and/or liver damage from taking the Advil frequently in such amounts. You are at the current maximum for the Gabapentin. The FDA lists the typical side effects of these medications as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. What is causing your pain?
