I say a pill mill jusdt because they prescribe good amounts usually but I am a completely on the up and up and have alot 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: 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.

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, ...

Dangerous Cocktail: Neurontin and Opiates
7 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...

Sudden Withdrawal from Neurontin
234 Replies RSS
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 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 ...

Terrible side effects from Neurontin
4 Replies RSS
I took Neurontin back in January 2014. I took the lowest dose for 4 days. I got severe face and neck tremors. Those eventually went away After seeing a Neurologist and medication. What has not gone away is my severe voice problem. Neurontin has ruined my voice. I have been to a Neurollogist, 2 ENT'S, 2 Voice doctors and have been to speech therapy on two separate occasions. If you look under Pfizer Neurontin side effects you will get a very detailed list of side effects including my side effects. I would never suggest anyone take this medicine because there are so many side effects and you don't know which ones you will get. And like me you don't know how long they will last. Remember mine started in Jan 2014 and I don't know if I will ever get my normal voice back. It r...

Here in delhi difficult to find enzoheal tablets. but enzomac can be found easily.. ## Yes, they both contain Trypsin, Bromelain and Rutoside and are commonly used to help with digestion. Are there any other questions or comments? ## I'm taking neurontin for a pinched nerve in my foot, which occurred during surgery. I'm looking for something that will ease the pain without the weight gain & sleepiness. I just can't settle for the fact that I may have to be on this for the rest of my life. ## Elaine, how long have you been taking it?

And not everyone gains weight on the medication, but...
