Alcohol and Gabapentin
150 Replies RSS
Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic. These can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema.

2 Replies RSS
What is the difference between gabapentin 600mg TAB ACT and gabapentin 600mg TAB GLE? ## Hello, Curious! How are you? They are the same, the only difference is that they've been manufactured by different pharmaceutical companies, since this is a generic medication. For instance, the GLE stands for Glenmark Pharmaceuticals. The FDA classifies this medication as being an anticonvulsant that is also approved to treat certain types of nerve pain and some mood disorders. It typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, good signs and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## They have different colors one is white one is green does this make a difference

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.

gabapentin side effects elderly

I am 72 and take 1500mg of Gabapentin along with .125mg of Mirapex for my neuropathy & RLS. Reading these articles make me very apprehensive. Should I have concerns? I don't think the Gabapentin is helping my neuropathy at this point as my feet just scream sometimes & they are painful when I walk. ## Hi Sue, About your concerns relating to Gabapentin's side effects, I think it's equally important to note that not everyone who takes these types of medications experiences them. Unfortunately the only way to know for sure is to try it (which you did); but depending on the long term benefits vs need factor, continuing its use is a risk only you can truly assess from what feels right and what doesn't. Have you talked with your doctor about trying any other alternative...
