Lyrica is NOT generic Gabapentin!!! Neurontin is the brand name of gabapentin and I'm not sure if there is a generic name for lyrica yet or not. Neurontin started on the market in the late 1980s as a psych. med and by the early 1990s the FDA realized it was helping certain kinds of nerve pain and now these days it is no longer prescribed for psych. issues just nerve pain and certain physical brain disorders. Lyrica was invented in 2003 and given to ppl for both physical and psychological disorders that causes nerve pain. My doc. switched me from gaba to lyrica when it was new but eventually had to switch me because because the lyrica did not help me. THEY ARE 2 COMPLETELY DIFFERENT MEDICATIONS!! Look it up before you comment like you know something about a medication and btw the FDA is investigating gaba and considering putting it in a class with narcotics because ppl are over dosing on it and they recently are using it to help recovering alcoholics with withdrawal symptoms as well. So if u are prescribed gaba then soon you will be weaned off of it if you haven't been taking it for a long period of time and if you get to stay on it your doctor will be doing routine drug panels to make sure you are taking it.
I just went to the Dr to get my prescription of Gabapentin, which I had 800 mg 3x a day and my Dr dropped it to 300 mg 3 x a day. She told me that it is s Narcotic. I live in Ky.
No gabapentin is not a narcotic. It works really good for nerve pain
I was prescribed today,gabapentin, for nerve pain on the soles of my feet and toes.My question is what causes this?
So how how you know. And what has helped you. Ive been suffering from. Neuropthy. Feet. Burn pain. Just saw your post im 52 and gd weight.
how long does it take for gabapentin to get into your system and start working?
The genetic ones that are Lyrica?? I don't know what you think but if you meant generic your still wrong. Gabapentin is different. Lyrica is pregalaban, a pro drug with higher bio availability than gaba but similar effects.
I was taking gabapentine , but changed to the genetic ones that is lyrica. Can't do without it. The side effect is that it give me a bigger waist. But I prefer to be pain free.
I want to know the way to get rid of habit of taking Restyle nearly 10 Mg per day but I do not forget anything and and deal with the civil and criminal cases with great zeal being an Advocate. Once I stopped. Then I experienced bitter results like increase in heart beating, unknown fear, dullness, head-ache etc., In fact on the advise of doctor only I started to use the same. But it went to such an extent. will it be dangerous to me. If so, I can stop. But let me know the remedial drug or advise.
Please check fda.gov. I had all the side effects. Made me drunk and very disoriented. Look up Neurontin, it's the same medication. Both work for neuropathy but you need to research both drugs. :)
Yes but only nerve pain caused by neuropathy. I've taken pain meds and they never worked. I refused to take nerve pills due to ther rep of knocking people out. Gabepentin works very well and decreased the amount of spasms I had from head to toe. The only other thing that helped was pot. But it's illegal so I had to stop. When it becomes legal then I'll go back to pot.
It may depend on the person but I use to be on gabepentin 800mg 3/times a day at one point with tramadol 6 times a day. Now I'm on 800mg gabepentin like before with 20mg of subutex and I don't nod out. I don't mean to disrespect you but you cannot know for a fact it's what or all she is taking. Regarding pills Subutex can cause it if your not use to it or dose is too high as can methadone or any narcotic in large quantity. I've taken what you described and didn't nod out. If she is abusing them it's possible with that dosage. I've never nodded and I've never abused medicine at the same dosage. If she is falling over, falling asleep while driving, dropping cigarettes or phone a lot, burning holes in stuff then she has a problem not equal to her dosage of meds. Also she could have other issues like anemia or the like and could cause extreme exhaustion so that's another concern. Just pay attention and I'll pray for her either way.

My dad's stepsister is nodding out all the time and I found out she's on 2 300 mg tablets 4 times a day plus 50 mg tramadol up to max of 8 a day.. she is saying that nothing else will help her and is this what is causing her to look like she's on heroin everyday?!?!
I take 800mg 3 times a day. Studies have shown that gabepentin works best when taken on schedule and at does between 6 to 8 hun 3 times a day. It's the only thing that's worked for my nerve pain. No narcotic could ever touch. I tried that med Lyrics and it never worked for me. You will withdrawls from gabepentin if you suddenly quit taking it but it may depend on your dose as to how bad it is. You would feel like a belt us wrapped around your chest being pulled tighter and tighter, alot of anxiety, stomach in knots with frequent bowl movements, nasea and drained. Oh and cold sweats.. those are the worst.
Have you checked the side effects of this drug? Try FDA.gov. I had all the side effects, though the medication worked, I couldn't handle the medication. I was taking 100 mgs 8x day. Also known as Neurontin, look this up as well.
You'll gain weight! Idk if it's water weight or what but, just keep an eye on your weight before u start taking it then, after 2-3 weeks on it, check again!
