Please i need to know for sure if gabapentin is a narcotic? I take them every day. I was prescribed them. I was told that they are and i wanna know for certain as im not wanting to take them no more. ## No they are not a narcotic. They are ued for a few things, but mostly nerve pain. ## That is correct, Gabapentin is not a narcotic, it is actually an anticonvulsant that can also help with certain forms of nerve pain. It may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness and weight changes. You can learn more about it here: Are there any other questions or comments? ## Weight changes as in they can make u gain or lose? ## Is gabentin used for severe chronic pain ## Taking it for menopause symptoms ## Can you take Gabapentin100mg andAmlodlpine 5mg at the same time ## You'll gain weight...

Gabapentin and opiate withdrawals
2 Replies RSS
Does gabapentin help at all with opiate withdrawals? Does it make it at all any more comfortable? ## It may help alleviate some of the symptoms and prevent the risk of possible seizures, according to FDA reports. Has your doctor prescribed it for you? Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes. Are you on any other medications? ## I've been off methadone for 9 days and I took 3 Co-codamol. Will that make my withdrawals even worse? Also, does gabapentin help with opiate withdrawal?

Gabapentin Side effects?
14 Replies RSS
I started taking gabapentin 300mg daily 4 days ago and last night had some strange side effects. The first night I took it right before bed so had no side effects but was very groggy in the morning. The to next two nights I had this almost drunk feeling come over me, almost exactly 2 hours after taking the pill both nights. I was mentally impaired but had a kind of heavy head feeling and some slight tingling as I would if I were to drink. It passed and I was fine. Then yesterday I woke up pain free for the first time, and took the med for the fourth night and like clock work 2 hours later that feeling came over me and then I got double vision, trouble concentrating talking a ton, it makes me feel very uppity. Then I got this hot tingling down my back starting at the base of my skull dow...

is gabapentin 100 mg used to relieve itching due kidney disease
1 Reply RSS
I have had a kidney problem for the past year. My creatine level is going up from 1.2 to 2.4. Despite whatever medicine I use, the level is not coming down. Also, I am experiencing itching all over my body, especially on my legs. Someone suggested me to go for 100 mg gabapentn. After only one capsule the Itching has gone away but I feel very exhausted and tired. Please suggest me some medicine to lower my creatine level and to reduce the itching. ## Gabapentin makes lots of people itch head to toe! I was so crazy with itching I could not bear it. Gabapentin is making you itch. (I am not a doctor, just a patient). As soon as you stop the itching will go away. Well it actually takes a period of time similar to your taking it, but it will lessen right away from my own experience. For examp...

does gabapentin cause major itching
27 Replies RSS
I take 300 mg gabapentin at night for post operative foot pain and have started itching profusely does this med cause that and if so how long do you have to be off of it before it subsides? ## Hello, Nana! How are you? Yes, according to the FDA, it has been known to cause this as a side effect in some people that take it, along with nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight changes. Have you consulted your doctor? They can help you determine whether or not it is due to the medication, for sure, as well as what you can do to help alleviate it. As to how long it will take to stop, it really depends on how long you've been taking it, it could take a few days, or a week. ## Thank you. Verwon, I have stopped taking gabapentin to see if itching subsides, I am taking doxepin and ceritizine...

Gabapentin and blood pressure
4 Replies RSS
Why would my doctor prescribe gabapentin when my blood pressure is difficult to control? It's 100/150 at times. I was complaining to my Dr that my hands are becoming difficult to control; I drop & throw things. Very miserable not being able to hold a phone, etc. ## I honestly can't say, since blood pressure elevations can be a side effect of it, as reported by the FDA. Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that can also be used to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. Its other typical side effects are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight gain. What other medications do you take regularly? I wonder if one of them may be contributing to the issue with your hands. ## Does gabapentin cause high blood pressure? My heart...

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
117 Replies RSS
I was taking 300 mg neurontin. 1 in am, 1 at noon and 2 at bedtime. I was prescribed the med in May of 2013. Increased later when not helping with foot numbness. It has been almost 2 weeks since i tapered myself off of the drug and i still feel nausea in the am which affects my eating. Please advise how long it will take this med to be out of my system? Thank you. ## Hi Cindy, Sorry to hear about the nausea you've been experiencing lately. From what I've been researching, in most cases it usually ends up being around 2 to 5 days for this type of medication to clear your system. However because you've been taking it for about a year, I'd imagine your body could still probably use some time to get accustomed to not having it on a regular basis. One study I found mentioned ...

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.
