does gabapentin cause major itching
27 Replies RSS
I take 300 mg gabapentin at night for post operative foot pain and have started itching profusely does this med cause that and if so how long do you have to be off of it before it subsides? ## Hello, Nana! How are you? Yes, according to the FDA, it has been known to cause this as a side effect in some people that take it, along with nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight changes. Have you consulted your doctor? They can help you determine whether or not it is due to the medication, for sure, as well as what you can do to help alleviate it. As to how long it will take to stop, it really depends on how long you've been taking it, it could take a few days, or a week. ## Thank you. Verwon, I have stopped taking gabapentin to see if itching subsides, I am taking doxepin and ceritizine...

Gabapentin and blood pressure
4 Replies RSS
Why would my doctor prescribe gabapentin when my blood pressure is difficult to control? It's 100/150 at times. I was complaining to my Dr that my hands are becoming difficult to control; I drop & throw things. Very miserable not being able to hold a phone, etc. ## I honestly can't say, since blood pressure elevations can be a side effect of it, as reported by the FDA. Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that can also be used to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Its other typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight gain. What other medications do you take regularly? I wonder if one of them may be contributing to the issue with your hands. ## Does gabapentin cause high blood pressure? My heart...

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

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. I have a lot of double vision, though only when I'm tired (which is most of the time). Of course, I take a few other sedating medications as well. I've gotten used to ...

Is GABAPENTIN safe/good/bad with MORPHINE?
18 Replies RSS
Hello. I have multiple pain issues due to generalized OA, neuralgia, bilateral sciatica, trigger thumbs, carpal tunnel, protruding discs, trapped nerves, compression of spinal cord at L4/5, tendenosis, fibromyalgia and chronically inflammed tendon/nerve sheaths. I'm 52, female and in quite a bit of pain and take a few meds that include 600mg GABAPENTIN 3xdaily, which I love and can't do without. I also take dihydra., and naproxin. I've asked my GP for something more/stronger and I want to get MORPHINE at the starter dose of 30mg slow release, to see how I get on with it. My question I'd like to know from users of gabapentin with morphine is how have you got on with them + is the combo safe/good/bad in your experience?

I am trying to find out if gabapentin is ok to be in the system (body) of a truck driver. Legal presciption from a doctor. ## Can a truck driver pass a DOT physical if he takes gabapentin? ## Hello, Jeanie! How are you? I'm sorry, but from what I've found the answer is no. There is an automatic disqualification for anyone taking any type of antiseizure medication. This is due to the fact that the person either has epilepsy, or if they are taking it for nerve pain or mood disorders, the medication could put them at risk of a seizure, if they miss a dose or are late taking it. Having a seizure while driving could be very dangerous. The FDA lists the typical side effects to this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight changes. Is there a...

Alcohol and Gabapentin
169 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...

3 Replies RSS
What is the difference between gabapentin 600mg TAB ACT and gabapentin 600mg TAB GLE? ## Hello, Curious! How are you? They are the same, the only difference is that they've been manufactured by different pharmaceutical companies, since this is a generic medication. For instance, the GLE stands for Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. The FDA classifies this medication as being an anticonvulsant that is also approved to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. It typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, good signs and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## They have different colors one is white one is green does this make a difference ## Difference taking 2 400 gabapentin up vs 1 800 gabapentin

Are they for anxiety? And will it put me to sleep? HOW STRONG IS IT REALLY? MY ANXIETY HAS BEEN BAD SINCE I LOST MY JOB AND I NEED SUMTHING TO REALLY HELP ME .. ## Hi lexo, Sorry to hear about your challenges with anxiety. Based on your description, I located the yellow capsule marked IP 102 to be Gabapentin (300 mg). Manufacturer: Amneal Pharmaceuticals National Drug Code (NDC): 53746-0102 Gabapentin was originally developed for the treatment of epilepsy, and is currently widely used to relieve neuropathic pain. However it also has an off-label use in the treatment of anxiety associated with bipolar disorder. On the contrary, wikipedia notes that Gapapentin has a "limited usefulness" in disorders such as social anxiety disorder and obsessive-compulsive disorder, in treatment-re...

Gabapentin/How long do these stay in the urine???
24 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 ...

How Long Does Gabapentin Stay In Your System
92 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. ## I have been taking gabapenton for about three months.
