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

blurred vision, unsteadiness
I've been on Gabapentin for three weeks. The unsteadiness has improved somewhat but the vision has me worried. My sight clears up about an hour or so before the next dose. It's not an alarming loss of vision, just a fuzziness that's bothersome when I read. Has anyone else experienced this and how long did it take to pass? ## Hello Hi I too am dizzy from medication but I also take other , cancer p/ T in remission. Maybe you need lower dose ask your Dr. Nice Day ## @Lonnie, Based on my research, blurred vision is actually listed as one of the more common side effects associated with Gabapentin. Ref: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMH0045606/#DDIC600709.side_effects_section On that note, I don't know if you can even expect it to go away while you're still taking the medi...

gabapentin side effects elderly
I am 72 and take 1500mg of Gabapentin along with .125mg of Mirapex for my neuropathy & RLS. Reading these articles make me very apprehensive. Should I have concerns? I don't think the Gabapentin is helping my neuropathy at this point as my feet just scream sometimes & they are painful when I walk. ## Hi Sue, About your concerns relating to Gabapentin's side effects, I think it's equally important to note that not everyone who takes these types of medications experiences them. Unfortunately the only way to know for sure is to try it (which you did); but depending on the long term benefits vs need factor, continuing its use is a risk only you can truly assess from what feels right and what doesn't. Have you talked with your doctor about trying any other alternative...

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. 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!

side effects of cabapentin
since i have been taking the medication i have develop a yellow discharge. It does not itch or smell so I don't think it is a yeast infection. ## Hello, Martha! How are you? A yellow discharge could be the sign of a bacterial infection, so you do need to have it checked out by your doctor. The Gabapentin hasn't been known to cause that. Its normal side effects include nausea, dizziness, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

white oval pill ending with letters entin
what is this? under it I only make out the last number 5 as it is cut in half ## this pill is oval and white and ends with ENTIN with the 5 inder it ## Hello, Adele! How are you? I'm sorry, but I can't find anything that matches this. I thought perhaps it was a Gabapentin tablet, but I'm not seeing any that actually have that on them and the 5 doesn't match the available dosages. It could be a foreign tablet, which may explain my not finding it. Learn more Gabapentin details here. Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that's also used to treat some forms of nerve pain and many people think it's a straight analgesic, just like a narcotic, so many do order them illegally from other countries. I can't be sure, without the full imprint, this is just a guess. Does anyon...

oblong white pill, split in middle, one side of split has 1 on it, other side of split has 3 on it, other side of pill is blank.
this pill is not quite 3/4" long. My pharmacy substituted it for Gabopentin and when I questioned it they said it was a change of Mfg. I'm leery of it, it is larger than gabopentin and tends to give me indigestion. Please set my mind at ease. Thank you. ## Hello, Sue! How are you? Yes, these are 800mg Gabapentin tablets that are manufactured by Camber Pharmaceuticals. There may be a different inactive ingredient that could be causing your indigestion. Have you tried taking it with food? ## thank you so much, I feel much better.

gabybentin 400
I wanted to get verication if these pills r stronger then tylonol 3 or 4 ## Hello, Kevin! How are you doing? No, Gabapentin is actually an anticonvulsant that has been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. Thus, it does not work like a regular analgesic, because it takes several weeks for it to reach its full level of effectiveness in your body to alleviate pain. The Tylenol contains Codeine, which will start to alleviate pain shortly after you take it and which is an actual narcotic analgesic. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Are there any other questions or concerns?

if gabybentin 400mg are stronger than a tylonol 3 or 4
What is stronger medication a gabybentin or a tylonol 3 or 4 ## Hello, Kevin! How are you? I think you are misunderstanding what Gabapentin actually is, because it is not a regular analgesic. It is actually anticonvulsant that can help with some types of nerve pain, but it will take 4 to6 weeks to reach its full level of efficacy in the body. Thus, it does not work like an actual analgesic that can alleviate pain within minutes of taking it. Thus, the Tylenol 3 or 4 is stronger, because it is an actual analgesic that contains Codeine coupled with Acetaminophen. This is a narcotic analgesic, so it has the potential to be habit forming and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, dry mouth and constipation. Is there anything else I can help with?

GABA DICL CREAM
Does cream actually go through your bloodstream. I have taken Gabapentin in the past which started out oksy for a while but then I had an issue with it & went off the pill form of the medication. I was told since it doesn't go through your bloodstream that the cream should be fine. Please let me know what you think and also if you lnow its true about it not going into your bloodstream and causing any of the same side effects as the pill form. Thank you. ## Hello, Diane! How are you? A little does, but just trace amounts, not any significant amount that should cause side effects or reactions. Most of the reactions to these topical creams are limited to skin irritation wherever you applied it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you, that helped me quite a bit! There ...

gabapentine for finger and elbow pain only in prone position
Pain only occurs in prone position, Numbness in the fingers and intense pain. Pain also affects elbow and arm ## Hello, World Cat! How are you? I am sorry that you're suffering such pain. Since it only occurs in a prone position, that leads me to suspect that a nerve might be getting pinched, when you position yourself like that. Rather than using a medication, it could be treatable with medical intervention, such as physical therapy to reposition it, so it no longer occurs. Has your doctor prescribed the Gabapentin for it? It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight changes.
