Is GABAPENTIN safe/good/bad with MORPHINE?
3 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'd like to know how your side-effects have been ...

gabapentin doses and weight gain
Post a Reply
I take 800 mg 3x a day of Gabapentin for my diabetic neuropathy. Pain management is considering raising it to 900 mg 3x a day. In the past 3 months I have gained 26 lbs. My feet are also still burning and prickly. What is the highest dose I can be prescribed and could this be causing some of my weight gain?

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 ...

Withdrawing from Gabapentin after only 15 days
2 Replies RSS
prescribed gabapentin for fantom tooth pain. started at 100 mg for 5 days then upped to 200 mg. after 4 days at 200 mg started having constipation and lower back and side pain. At the fifteenth day I dropped the dose back to 100 mg and would like to get. completely off it. How should I proceed. ## Hello, Joel! How are you? The FDA classifies Gabapentin as an anticonvulsant that can also help with certain types of nerve pain, so it's not addictive like a narcotic would be and after only 15 days at such low doses, you can most likely just stop it, as long as our doctor approves. Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Vermon, Thanks for the information. I am going t...

Hi are pre gabs gabapentin?? In my area opiate addicts have been dying as the gear is cut with pre gab. Is pre gab gabapentin? Thanks ## No, they are not the same, but they are related. You're actually talking about 2 different medications here, Gabapentin and Pregabalin. The FDA classifies them both as anticonvulsants that are also used to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. The typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with?

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...

If someone can please help me with these help with an opiate withdrawal or would they not? ## Hello, Jimmie! How are you?

Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight changes. It really depends how severe your withdrawals are, if they are very bad, it may not help much.

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...

gabapentin side effects rapid pulse from 85 to 105 at rest. Usually 60-70 at rest. ## And how are you feeling right now ? Did you notice these effects every time you took the Gabapentin ? Rapid heart beat is not specifically listed as a side effect of this medication, however there are other side effects which may be related ... such as dizziness, tremor, nausea, blurred vision. Have you had any of these? Medications which have a neurological effect on the body can certainly come with their own complications.

Steill, I', concerned about the increased heart rate. The doctors say wait and see. Thanks ## Yes, I am exper...

There is a long story and before I forget it all I want to share what is happening at this time. I took Gab. For 5 months and weened myself off over a 30 day period.

I can't take any meds for the pain. I have even resorted to medical Marijo But am allergic to that also. I go through terrible mood swings mostly sadness, despair, lack of motivation, no libido, no plans for the I might kill myself tomorrow so why Bother. People say you need to see a phy. Dr. what av...

Is toprimate and gabapentin in the same category ## Hello, Christa! How are you? Yes, they are both classified by the FDA as anticonvulsants, though the Topiramate usually treats more types of seizures than the Gabapentin and the latter is also more commonly used to treat certain types of nerve pain and mood disorders. Typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes. Has one of them been prescribed for you?
