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

alcohol and Gabapentin
60 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!

How Does Gabatentin Show Up In A Urine Test
4 Replies RSS
I have been prescribed gabatentine for back and neck pain. I am being drug tested once a week with a zero tolerance for any narcotics in my system. Will this medication show up on a 10 panel drug urinalysis drug screen ## Gabapentin is not a narcotic of any type, it is actually an anticonvulsant that has been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. Thus, it should not show up as anything and it has also not been known to cause false positives. Learn more Gabapentin details here. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I am on Gabapentin and Ibuprofen for knee pain and my hair folicule test came back positive for benzo's and cocaine and I haven't used any narcotics in 7 months, so I would not take the gabapentin if I was you! ## My neurontin show a an opiate on sali...

How are you doing? Telling your doctor is the best thing to do. Gabapentin is actually classified by the FDA as an anticonvulsant that is also used to help with certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders, that's likely why it alleviated your anxiety. Although it is not an opiate, it has been known to be abused, in some cases. Its typical side effects may pos...

this is a small white capsule with 137 printed on each side. The numbers are printed in black. ## Hello, Brooke! How are you? This capsule is manufactured by Caraco Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 100mgs of Gabapentin.

how to get off gabapentin 800mg once a day at bedtime
1 Reply RSS
Have lower back pain and was given 800mg Gabapentin to be taken 1/2 tablet 3 times a day. Only took 1/2 pill at bedtime, off and on for only a few months. My doctor moved and was given a different doctor who said my 200mg Zoloft a day wasn't working anymore so I should take a 800mg Gaba pill at night, he tapered me off the Zoloft by reducing 50mg every two weeks. I have been off Zoloft for a week and started wellbutin 75mg one in the morning and one at night. Note: I haven't taken the Gaba for 2 days and have noticed I am having anxiety, ring in ears, depression, crying at the drop of a hat, irritability, nausea, loss of appetite, insomnia, feeling like I;m going crazy. I believe these symptoms are from the Gaba what can I do to light theses symptoms? ## Hello, Gwen! How are you...

1 Reply RSS
My pain dr tests me of course and he doesn't give me nearly half of what my now non-practicing dr gave me for bulging disc and osteoarthritis in my l4 and l5 and s1 discs. I'm always in pain and 3 oxy 16 mg don't work when the topamax he gave metabolizes it so quickly. I got some neurontin and that helps so much with the nerve pain, i want to ask him about it at my next appt. But I dont want it to show in the drug screen he does every appt. Do I need to worry that it will show? ## I went to dr. Today..I have been on norco10/325 for over 2 years now I took a blood test and also urine test which she sent a letter to come in so I did .&she informed me that my test showed ( in other words) she said something a bout Matabulizing ???

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
37 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...

2 Replies RSS
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. This my last drug screen to come back. Thus is ru...

gabapentin side effects rapid pulse
22 Replies RSS
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. Can you talk about any other details of your experience with this? ## The heart rate remains the same, but I feel better anxiety-wise, which is why I was prescribed it. Steill, I', concerned about the increased heart rate. The doctors say wait and see. Thanks ## Yes, I am exper...
