Gabapentin 600 Mg Tablet Side Effects
my father came from work. sweating bad. and feeling bad from the medicine. 72yr male, with weakness in his legs and knee legs go out. and his in bad health. giving by the va hospital. help please. mary ## Norman, has he contacted the VA hospital and prescribing doctor about the problem, yet? Gabapentin can cause these types of side effects in anywhere between 1 to 7% of the people that use it. Since it sounds like they were pretty severe and caused him problems walking, its probably not the right medication for him, or it may be too high of a dosage. ## I am a diabetic patient. I complained of pain in the body and hardened hand movements. Doctor prescribed Gabapentin USP 300 mg Capsules for night and 100mg capsules for the morning. I do not know for what reason did he prescribe this. Is...

ic gabapentin 300 mg bladder side effects
I take 100 ic gabapentin 3 times/day for sciatica. Now I find that my bladder leaks about once a week which is unnerving.

The leakage is small and occurs in my sleep. ## Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. This is not listed among the normal side effects, which may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and weight gain. You can read more on it here: Have you talked to your doctor about this? ## Have not talked to doctor about occasional bladder leakage while sleeping since starting Gabapentin.

I HAVE NEUROPATHY. I HAVE SEVER BURNING IN MT FEET AND SOMETIMES HANDS, I HAVE THE TINGLING ALSO IN BOTH. 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...

Will gabapentin produce the same side effects as Lyrica?
I was put on Lyrica for diabetic nerve pain, but after taking it for 2 weeks, my blood sugar dropped drastically, and I had to be hospitalized. It was determined that Lyrica was responsible, since that was the only thing that had changed. I was taken off the Lyrica immediately. However, I have suffered with constant leg pain for years, and asked my doctor if there was something different I could take. He prescibed Gabapentin for a trial month to see how I do with it. When I got home, I searched the Internet for more information and see that it was primarily prescribed for seizures. My question is: Will I experience the same side effects as I did with Lyrica, and will I become dependent on the medication if it does help. I don't like the possible side effects of mood swings, depressi...

Can gabapentin cause false positive result in drug test for THC??
Hi, Im 37yr. old caucasian male. Im in methadone maintenance, and i have begun slowly taperin off it. I take 90mg methadone, 30mg oxazepam morning only, and now I tried recreational dosage gabapentin (neurontin). I learned, that for fun, its worth of nothing except poisoning own body. Dose of gabapentin was 7x300 = 2100mg. Passive smoke is impossible, and I haven eat any hemp pruducts. I blame that false positive Gabapentin.. can it really be so? ## Hi Deadboy, I am currently in the same situation! I also am treated for opiate dependency at a methadone clinic. The dr at the clinic prescribed me 300mg 3x's a day of Neurontin and I am now testing positive for thc and I DO NOT SMOKE! I have recently quit the medication and I am waiting.

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...

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.

How Long Does Gabapentin Stay In Your System
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...

How long before side effects resolve from gabapentin?
My father who is 79 was started on 300 mg of gabapentin, three times a day. After the 4th dose, he was having hallucinations, tremors, and became tachycardic and arrhythmic. Although the MD prescribing would not say stop the medication, his cardiologist advised immediately stopping. He continues to be lethargic, confused and although better, still has some tremors about 36 hours after taking his last dose. His heart rate is down to around 84 now. How much longer until these side effects resolve? ## Hi Snigs, I'm very sorry to hear about your father's situation. Based on your description, it sounds to me like his cardiologist may know best. A lot of these side effects can be serious/life threatening and may require immediate medical attention if they persist. For the doctor to di...

gab dic lid bac
What is GAB/DIC/LID/BAC 4/2/2/1 P ## Hello, Tom! How are you? Those abbreviations stand for… Gabapentin, which is an anticonvulsant that's also used to treat certain types of nerve pain. Diclofenac, which is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory. Lidocaine, which is a topical anesthetic. And Baclofen, which is a muscle relaxant. The numbers are just the dosage combination. This is most commonly a topical cream/ointment that must be made by a compounding pharmacy and is used to treat minor pain. Is there anything else I can help with?

Gabapentin and weight gain
I take 600 mg. of gabapentin (3) times a day for nerve pain. For me it has been a miracle drug. I do have difficulty if not almost impossible losing weight and have even gained some. It has been worth the trade off to be able to feel better. Does anyone know how to counteract this? ## Hi Agnes, Sorry to hear about your challenges with Gabapentin. According to the National Library of Medicine, rapid weight gain happens to be a general side effect of this medication. I'm not a doctor, but coming from someone with an athletic background, the best advice I can offer for counteracting it would probably be to follow a strict diet and exercise program. Something that you can commit to as long as you're taking the medication. I would also recommend drinking plenty of water (making that ...

c keto cream
I'm having trouble with my shoulder from an accident I recently had. The Dr. prescribed me this, KETO/GAB/LID/PENCREAM 10/6/2/2% CR 100gm. Apply 1-2 grams (1-2 pumps) to affected area 3-4 times daily. Also with 5 refills. If anyone can tell me anything about this medication or tell me where to go to find it, I can't seem to find it anywhere. Does it help. So far I feel a small better feeling. I know the GAB, should (?) stand for gabapentine, which I take in a capsule form, 300mg. All the others, I have no idea. Is this something new? Has anyone else tried it. I read a little about it also helping depression ((??)) along with some "Other" things that would really help me. It is in a (*)topical cream that sort of resembles shaving cream. Any help sure would be appreciated....
