can neurontin cause a false positive on drug test
1 Reply RSS
I came up positive today for methamphetamine on a urine test. I've never touched that drug a day in my life. Does too much of it in your system cause that? I also take tegrotol, remeron, and catapress. They sent it out but I'm going crazy because I don't know what's going on....someone please help! ## I recently had a urinalysis sent to a lab. I just began taking Gabapentin maybe 2 to 3 weeks before this. I came up positive for cocaine and I never ever have done cocaine! My opinion is yes it does throw false positives. I spoke to someone who was in jail and people were coming up positive for benzos and cocaine while taking the Gabapentin. They actually quit giving it in this particular jail for this reason.

Dangerous Combination: Neurontin and Opiates
22 Replies RSS
One of the contraindications while taking Neurontin is using opiates such as Hydrocodone (Vicodin) and Oyxcodone (Percocet). The opiates potentiate the effect of Neurotin by 14%. With Morphine, it increases the effect of Neurotin by 44%. My husband was on Neurontin at 900 mg a day (taken in three doses). At that time, he was not taking much of his pain killer, Oxycodone (Percocet), maybe one 5mg dose a night. My husband was originally took Neurotin for shingles nerve pain. His doctor decided to increase his dose of Neurontin to 1800 mg per day (three equal doses). Before that time, my husband increased his Oxycodone to two 5mg tablets before bedtime and another 5mg tablet about four hours later. Upon the increase in Neurontin, my husband started to experience some adverse effects. These...

gabapentin withdrawals
199 Replies RSS
being taken off of neurontin/gabapentin after seven years. crying, anxious, and what no one mentions itching all over! have tried antihistamines, cortizone creams but w/ no relief. ## yes this is normal I went through the same thing. I was on 3600 for eight years. I weaned off very slowly. I started weening off in 2008. I am now down to 400mg and go down about 100 a week. Its so awful ## These types of problems are normal from a sudden withdrawal of any medication that affects brain chemicals, which is exactly what Gabapentin does, since it was initially discovered as an anticonvulsant. Unfortunately, since you were on it for so long, it is probably going to take several weeks for these effects to wear off, though they should gradually improve and lessen in severity. As to the itching, ...

What Does Neurontin Show Up As On A Drug Screen
63 Replies RSS
Does anyone know if Neurontin shows up as anything on a drug screen? ## No, Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, it is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to be effective at treating certain types of nerve pain, so it is not a substance that is included on drug test panels. It has also not been known to cause false positives for anything else. Learn more Neurontin details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Neurontin only shows up as neurontin or gabapenton and is rarely tested for. I'm in drug court and they test us for everything including neurontin and ultram/ultracet ## Going to Dr tomorrow for migraines. My Friend gave me nuerotin. And buspar. Is this going to show up in blood or urine ## Thank u so much foe the answer to my question. My mom ...

Bowl problem and gas STINTCH
3 Replies RSS
Upon taking Neurontin, I had an immediate change in colon issues. Constant gas inflates my belly to the point it is distended. When I pass gas, there is the WORST sour stinch. Every fart I've let off has been exactly the same since the gabapentin has been in my system. When I do finally have to crap, it is loose, gooey, and is impossible to squeeze off. I'm in the bathroom for way too long, trying to force it all out (major strain). Then when I wipe, I have to spend so much time trying to get the messy poop residue off my o ring. Gross but a major issue. ## mmmkay ## You know, I've been on 1800 mg on Neurontin just over a year now, for pain in my head I was diagnosed with a psuedotumor-cerebri....I also had my gallblader out 9 months ago and since then have everything you de...

does neurontin show up on a drug test as coke
3 Replies RSS
Does neurontin show up in a icare drug test for/as coke (crack)? My friend needs to know if her husband is lying. ## Absolutely not. Gabapentin (neurontin) does not show up as anything in a drug test. If it had the chance to show up as anything, a benzo maybe but definitely not coke or crack. It is not considered a schedule c drug and so it is not tested for on drug screenings and will not give a false positive for anything else. ## Are you 100% sure about this some says it does????? ## It can be tested for. I know. I just got done with a half way house. The state inmates' dip sticks, if dude was hot for it, would show up a positive. However, when sent out someone dirty on gabbies when not get a positive result. All the federal inmates' test get sent out. Those guy would take st...

Sudden Withdrawal from Neurontin

I have been taking 600 mg of Neurontin 4x a day for about 2 years and recentlty ran out of this medication due to excrutiating slow service from mandatory mail order RX company.... I was extremely agitated during this time (approx. 5 days), nervous, stressed out, etc. Has anyone else had these symptons as a result of sudden withdrawal from Neurontin? I can't understand why this happened, I felt so scared and lousy for that time. Is this a known reaction for this med? I haven't been able to find an answer. I take it for relief from carpel tunnel syndrom. Thanks ## Almost any med, or substance, even you morning coffee, will cause some withdrawal symptoms when you have been used to having it in your body for awhile, and suddenly stop taking it.

Chronic nerve pain

What is better for nerve pain neurontin or Lyrica I had surgery in both knees and injection in back I also have osterorithis ## Hello, Brenda! How are you? They have both been shown to be effective for some people, but the only way to see which one helps you is by trying one. They are both classified by the FDA as anticonvulsants that are approved to treat nerve pain and some mood disorders. Their typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth and weight gain. Which one has your doctor recommended? ## Hi, Brenda; it may have taken me a while to come across your post but pregabalin (patent brand Pfizer LYRICA) is over twice the potency of gabapentin (Pfizer NEURONTIN). I personally can take neither - I was prescribed and titrated up to the maximum dosage...

what will show up on a hair drug screen
1 Reply RSS
Neurontin (Gabapentin) has shown up 2-3 times on my daughters urine drug screens. I know she is not taking them. I will pay for a hair test if it can go back a few months and pick up neurontin to prove these urine tests are a mistake. ## The only lab I know that would have a hair drug test for Neurontin is national medical services in pa. Was the test your daughter took a urine dip test, like you use at home, or was it an actual lab test?? Which drug gave a false positive?? Any time a drug is positive it should be sent to a lab for GC/MS confirmation. Did your daughter sign a chain of custody form and initial a sticker that goes over the lid of a urine specimen container?? If not, the specimen could have been mix up with some other person specimen.

Neurontin Made Me Feel Euphoric
12 Replies RSS
I was prescribed neurontin by my doctor. I only took 3 capsules of the 300mg capsules. It made me happy and giggly and I felt like I was floating. I didn't feel angry or as if I wanted to hurt someone as I normally feel daily. Why? ## Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, which is actually an anticonvulsant, so it works on brain chemicals, this it can cause the effects you experienced in some people, which is why there are warnings that some people are more prone to abuse it. For this same reason, it is also sometimes used to treat mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder. Learn more: Are there any other questions or comments? ## Wow. That is quite a reaction for such a small dosage. I take 1200 mg, 3 times daily. Been taking it for neuropathy for 10 years. ## Can you...

Need a pain dr. in south Georgia ASAP. Needing a doctor that can prescribe sufficient amounts of pain medication so that I can function. I have a lot of back problems compounded by fibromyalgia and so on. ## It looks like law enforcement has been cracking down on the pill mills over there, so they may not be as generous as they might have been in the past: ajc.com/news/massive-pill-mill-raid-1227391.html n regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area.

how long does it take neurontin to get out of your system
7 Replies RSS
I have been prescribed Neurontin and would like to know how long does it take to come out of your system? It is causing too many problems for me. Can you stop suddenly or do you have to ween your self from them?? ## Hi, Sweet Pea! Sorry about the problems that it's causing you. What types of symptoms have you been experiencing? How long have you been taking it? If you've been on it for awhile, at a high dose, suddenly stopping it could cause a risk of seizures, since it's an anticonvulsant. It is generally best to taper off of these types of medications. Have you discussed it with your doctor? Learn more Neurontin details here. ## I'm not on gabapentin anymore. I took one 300 mg 3 months ago that my Dr told me to take for my nerve pain and m.s. but I took a drug panel on...

my 15 year old daughter is on 400 mg of neurontin 3x a day i just found out she has been skipping doses for the last three days how bad this
2 Replies RSS
My daughte is on neurontin for epilepsy,she also has an arachnoid cyst and an aneurysm. I found out she has skipped three days of doses( I counted her pills). How bad could this be? ## Hello, Pitbull mommy! How is your daughter doing? If she's taking it to prevent seizures, then you need to stress to her the importance of taking it all the time, as prescribed. Missing doses, even if someone doesn't have epilepsy, creates the risk of seizures. Since she does have epilepsy, her risk of having a seizure from skipping doses is even higher. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have always never been able to focus IR concentrate. When I went to a drug rehab when I was ALOT younger th...
