What Happens If I Take 200 Mg Of Gabapentin
11 Replies RSS
What Happens If I Take 200 Mg Of Gabapentin i need to know i already took it before i knew what milligrams it was i am worried what will happen what mental effects will it have on me???? ## Hi Alicia, Were you prescribed this medication or was it someone else's? I personally don't think you should have anything to worry about as far as side effects go if you only took this one dose. Gabapentin has a half life of 5 to 7 hours. So, for example, if you took 200 mg of gabapentin Monday at 4 PM, 100 mg would still be in your system at approx. 9 to 11 PM. Generally, it can take anywhere from 5-7 half-lifes before the drug is completely out of your system (but you should stop feeling its effects before then). Gabapentin was originally developed for the treatment of epilepsy, and is cur...

1 Reply RSS
Can one safely take 500mg of gabapentin with 12mg of suboxone after undergoing fusion surgery for nerve pain? My weight is 210. ## Has the medication been prescribed for you? They can be taken together, if necessary. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings, and weight changes. Are these the only medications you are currently taking?

gabapentin withdrawal relief
3 Replies RSS
I've taken Gabapentin for 12 years increasing every time the pain worsened. In December my dose was 3600mg daily plus 600mg Lyrica. My trigeminal neuralgia pain was getting worse so i had brain surgery in December 2015. A week later on doctors instructions i eliminated one Gabapentin a week, then one Lyrica a week.. for the last three weeks i have been so nauseous i am miserable.. How long can this last? Is there any over the counter relief? ## After being on it for so many years, it may take over a month for all your withdrawal symptoms to go away. As reported by the FDA, they may also include fever, diarrhea and rebound pain. I'm not sure what might help with the nausea. Possibly Bonine, if your doctor approves of you trying it. Its typical side effects may include dizziness, ...

Is the Gabapentin affecting my eyes?
97 Replies RSS
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 ...

gabapentin with ip 101 imprint
1 Reply RSS
Does gabapentin with an imprint of ip 101 strengthen the effect of other medications, specifically certain pain medications? ## No, it does not. Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that can help with certain types of nerve pain, and some mood disorders. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes. However, it may cause bad interactions with some pain medications. Did your doctor prescribe this for you? What other medications do you take?

Best times to take gabapentin
5 Replies RSS
I have started taking gabapentin 100mg twice a day. When is the best time to take it. Do the side effects go away or do you just have to put up with them? ## Hi sarah, Dosing schedules for Gabapentin are largely dependent upon your reasons for taking it. (i.e. - the usual adult dose for Epilepsy is as follows): Initial dose: 300 mg orally on day one, 300 mg orally twice a day on day two, then 300 mg orally 3 times a day on day three. Maintenance dose: 900 to 1800 mg orally in 3 divided doses. If necessary, the dose may be increased using 300 mg or 400 mg capsules three times a day up to 1800 mg/day. Dosages up to 2400 mg/day have been well tolerated in long-term clinical studies. Doses of 3600 mg/day have also been administered to a small number of patients for a relatively short durati...

I am extremely underweight and skinny, I am a female aged 25years and weigh 45kg. Pls help needed on a drug/medicine I can use to add weight fast I am so sick of hearing that am too thin ## Gabapentin!!! It is a anticonvulsant ask your doctor and google it people always gain wheight whe they take it. ## An anticonvulsant medication like Gabapentin should probably not be used for it's potential weight gaining purposes only, just because others have said that they gained some weight while taking it. For all we know, they could've also changed their diet and/or lifestyle while they were taking that medication; leading up to an extra few pounds. I'm not saying that it wont help you gain any weight, but the bottom line is, if you want more control over your weight (throughout the...

Fake Gabapentin From Combitic Global?
1 Reply RSS
I recieved 100 mg capsules from Combitic Global. They are not helping my Arthritis at all. I've been taking Gabapentin for years and never experienced this before I lost my insurance. I read a number of messages from customers saying their meds weren't working. Has anyone else experienced this from this company? I won't be ordering from them again-that's for sure! ## My investigation suggests that Combitic Global appears to be a well known drug manufacturer within the region of India. However I think it goes without sayin' that the quality assurance in India versus that of the US FDA regulatory standards may vary significantly. This is one of the biggest problems patients face when opting to not go through a licensed pharmacy that requires a prescription (whereas eve...

is gabapentin the same as lyrica
3 Replies RSS
I tried gabapentin 300mg. (instead of Lyrica 50mg.) the first time I used it, it made my heart pound so bad I could not use it, could I use a smaller mgs. of gabapentin. I have spinal stenosis, I have diabetes, my legs jumps all over, can't sleep because of it. ## Hello, Betty! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you experienced. No, they are not the same. Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, it is in the same class of medications, but different. Thus, it may work better for you. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight gain and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Your dose isn't high enough for neuropathy. I have taken it for 11yrs and I'm on 800mg 3 times a day. Racing heart ha...

Opioid Withdrawal

I'm confused!!! In this thread, Gabapentin and Pregabapentin are said to be the same drug then someone else says no, they're difference. I CANNOT take Gabapentin as it makes me crazy and angry. Is Pregabapentin going to do the same??? Also is there ANYTHING else anyone can think of to get off of Oxycodone??? I've been addicted for 15 years and a heavy user due to true pain. The last time I ran out I almost died. Can someone please help me with any suggestion other than rehab or Suboxone to get off of this??? Thank you!!! ## Hello, Diva! How are you? I believe you have the names mixed up. They are Gabapentin and Pregabalin, they are both in the same drug class, but are different medications.

8 Replies RSS
This was my first visit to a neuro.. I started Gabapentin on a friday night a week ago. 100MG 3xDay....I felt some relief the first night and the next day (albeit I had some wacky wacky side-effects at first)..... So I call the Dr.'s office and got a doctor who was covering and explained that I started Gabapentin the night before and wanted to increase the dose. The doc said that if I could handle the side-effects to go ahead. So, the next day I started taking 2x100mg capsles 3xDay... and this helped right away even more.. but in 7 days I feel no more improvement.. and a few days ago I asked the Doc who is my Doc if I can increase it further because it was helping but only 40-60% now.. He said I had to give it 2-4 weeks on this dose.... Couldn't the fact that i'm feeling rel...
