gabapentin withdrawals
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, ...

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. Did it ease when you finally started ...

I Found Neurontin and Buspirone in son's room, what do they do to him?
i found neurontin 300mg and buspirone 10mg, why is he taking these? they were prescribed to someone, but the label with name has been torn off. My sons not prescribed these at all. Wondering what they are doing to him? ## Hi neurontin i am told people take with opiates to intensify their high. Buporine is suboxone which is to help with withdrawal and suppose to help cravings for opiates. Not a good combination of medicine to mix im not a Dr but have family that are addicts . Best of luck ## Hello, Carol Ann! How are you? I'm happy to clear this up for you and provide information on these medications. Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, which is an anticonvulsant that's also used to treat certain types of nerve pain and mood disorders, but it is not a narcotic an...

False Positive On Blood Test
Can neurontin give a false positive for cocaine in a urine drug test? ## Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, it is an anticonvulsant, which has also been shown to help certain types of nerve pain. And no, it is not known to cause false positives for any other drugs. Where you taking anything else? Even over the counter medications? ## This is for a family member. He was taking alleve and nyquil for tooth pain (possibly). He did have a root canal a few days later. Thanks for your response. ## Maria, had he had anything done to the tooth, prior to the root canal? If the dentist used anesthetic to numb it, then that could explain the false positive. Some of the anesthetics they use are distance relatives of cocaine and could cause false positives for it. Aleve has been kno...

amerigroup real solutions
Does medicaid pay for neurontin or lyrica? ## HI THERE MY NAME IS MICHAEL, I HAVE A NEW INSURANCE CALLED AMERIGROUP REAL SOLUTIONS, I WAS WONDERING IF IT COVERS THE DRUG CALLED SUBOXONE, MANY SITES ARE SAYING DIFFERENT THINGS, I WOULD APPRECIATE AN ANSWER, THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH.. ## Hi Linda, From what I've read, Medicaid does provide coverage for drugs like Neurontin and Lyrica. However, you might also want to call the pharmacy ahead of time to verify whether or not there's a copay. @Mikey, According to Amerigroup's webpage, coverage is available for generic Suboxone (buprenorphine + naloxone), but it does require prior authorization and there also appears to be quantity limits of 120 for a 30 day period. You can view more specific details on page 5 and 33 of the following...

unnecessary neurontin
Can someone tell me why someone would take Neurontin if they do not need it? My daughter is a drug abuser...I do not know why or how she got this med but she has no need for it but takes handfuls of these pills. or..when she has Xanax, she'll take those as well...what effects is she having from this? Apparently, she has an issue with downers so I'm just wondering...And what are the effects of her stopping these cold turkey? Is it possible to OD on these drugs as in just falling asleep? She also has been known to take liquid G as well on many occasions...wonderful combination. ## Hi, Nina! Sorry to hear about your daughter. If she's a drug abuser, then I believe you've already answered your own question about why she'd take something that she doesn't need. Neuront...

Neurontin is an anticonvulsant, not a conventional analgesic like an opiate narcotic, so it would not be detected by such tests, at all. Learn more Neurontin details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## PharmChem inc. offers the PharmChek Sweat Patch Device (Drug Detection Patch) for use by its customers to test for drugs of abuse. Applica...

starting neurontin withdrawal
I am to start my withdrawal from 2700mg of neurontin this week. I take three 300mg at morning, noon, and dinner. I had tried to go off it myself a few time, but guess I tried to do it too quickly, the pain was terrible. I have been on it for about five years for chronic pain and it doesn't work. I will go down one pill (300) every three weeks or so. I hope this will be slow enough to prevent withdrawal symptoms. Any thought on this would be appreciated. ## Hi, Wanda! How are things going? One warning I'd like to give you is that you do need to do this very slowly and carefully. Since Neurontin is actually an anticonvulsant, a rapid, sudden withdrawal actually creates the risk of suffering seizures. You've already experienced the rebound pain that can happen from doing it too...

What Does Neurontin Show Up As On A Drug Screen
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

my friend took 200 neurontin what should i no do
My friend took 200 neurontin at 300mg apiece. What should i do? ## In these types of situations, I cannot stress enough how important it is to get emergency medical help. Anyone who fears that someone's life may be in danger due to such an action should call 911 in the U.S. or take the person to their nearest emergency treatment facility. While there are those of us online that are always happy to help, if we can, it is not possible for us to administer life saving measures over the Internet and while you're waiting for an answer to your post, the person's life could be slipping away. How is your friend doing?

Neurontin made me lose my mind
I was forced to take it while in a psychiatric hospital and went from being talkative to being completely silent and suffering from a complete inability to feel. I also can't concentrate or hear what people are saying and I'm young only 27 and try to go on a date with a guy and he'll ask me a philisophical question and I'll say "uh..." ## Hello, Dassa! How are you doing now? Neurontin is a drug that works on brain chemicals, so it can cause these types of problems in some people that take it. Learn more Neurontin details here. In the hospital, they aren't as worried about such side effects, because their goal there is to keep you calm and to prevent you from being a danger to yourself or anyone else. However, once you're out and trying to live life normal...

Gabapentin vs. Topamax
Hi I have been on Gabapentin for a month. The highest dose I could tolerate is 900mg a day. The problem is the drug has had no effect on my pain. I have tried to go up in dosage to possible get some pain relief, but I am retaining fluid at higher doses and I have Congestive Heart Failure, so this is a no-no. So..... The pain clinic wants to switch me to Topamax. Any experience or comments. Thanks! ## Hi Katia, Unfortunately, there have been quite a few of side effects reported by Topamax users. Here is a link to a thread you may consider posting in if you'd like to learn more about possible adverse reactions: Discuss/Topamax-caused-problems-159316.htm Just keep in mind that not everyone experiences side effects, since everyone's body chemistry is different.
