Gabapentin Withdrawals Question
2 Replies RSS
I've been on Gabapentin for two days, taking 100mg twice. Will I have withdrawals if I stop taking it? ## No, there should be any issues after such a short period of time on such a low dose. Why are you stopping it, already? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, fluid retention, mood swings, and weight gain. ## Okay, thank you. :) I could be wrong but it seems as if Gabapentin only made things worse for me. The pain I was having prior to taking it, seemed to get more frequent. Also, my chest pain seemed to last longer than usual.

My Son Experienced Extreme Gastric Upset While Taking Gabapentin And Sertraline Has Anyone Ever This
4 Replies RSS
My son experiences anxiety and chronic pain, the pain is a result of nerve damage and muscle atrophy. He experienced severe gastric reflux when taking both Setraline and Gabapentin. He has been taking the Sertraline since December 2010 and the Gabapentin was started in March 2011. He had some symptoms of reflux but not nearly to the extent he did, while taking the two togehter. Pain clinic would like him to continue taking the Gabapentin - my thought was to stop the Sertraline and just go with the Gabapentin at 600mg to treat both the anxiety and pain. Has anyone had any similar experiences? ## It is very difficult to say how any medication will affect any particular person that uses it, but yes, it is always possible that one, or more, could cause the production of excess stomach acid,...
