Does Neurontin turn up in a newborns Mecomium?
1 Reply RSS
Just wondering if Neurontin will turn up in a newborns Mecomium? I have been on them for years for fibro. Since being pregnant my doctor has told me to stop taking them and I just can't for the pain. I know that it isn't scheduled or a controlled substance. But I'm still very worried. Please somebody help! ## It isn't that it's a drug they are going to check for, after the baby is born. I'm thinking your doctor told you to stop taking it due to the risks it can cause to your baby. The FDA has placed it in pregnancy category C, which means they've found evidence of fetal toxicity, they explain it as being delayed ossification of several bones of the skull, vertebra and limb. Other abnormalities in newborns have also been noted in animal studies. It would be be...

Sudden Withdrawal from Neurontin
243 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 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 ...

gabapentin withdrawals
126 Replies RSS
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, ...

How long does neurontin/gabapentin stay good if they are in a medicine bottle sealed?
5 Replies RSS
I found a bottle of my gabapentin 600's in a bottle in the closet and I don't want to just pitch them if they're usable because I don't have insurance and they're expensive. What do you think? ## Hello, Lee! How are you? They should be disposed of if they are past the expiration date on the label. That is the longest period of time they be guaranteed to retain efficacy under normal storage conditions. This medication may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I found a bottle of gabapentin from 2014 would they still be good ## It would stil be good just mabe not as effective.Your right they are expensive. You can Google it. ## The efficiency will not be up to par. You should dispose of...

Dangerous Cocktail: Neurontin and Opiates
10 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...

Neurontin Made Me Feel Euphoric
13 Replies RSS
I was introduced to neurontin by my boyfriend. He took it and said it made him feel chill. I only took 3 capsules of the 300mg capsules. It made me happy and giggly and I felt like I was floating. I didn't feel angry or as if I wanted to hurt someone as I normally feel daily. Why? ## Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, which is actually an anticonvulsant, so it works on brain chemicals, this it can cause the effects you experienced in some people, which is why there are warnings that some people are more prone to abuse it. For this same reason, it is also sometimes used to treat mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder. Learn more: Are there any other questions or comments? ## Wow. That is quite a reaction for such a small dosage. I take 1200 mg, 3 times daily. Been...

Neurontin/Gabapentin Withdrawal Question.
4 Replies RSS
Hello. I'm very new to this drug, only 7 days.I am a diabetic with bi-polar/anxiety. I was recently put on Gabapentin 300mg. 1 pill for 4 days and then told to take 1 pill 2 times a day after. I have been experiencing some normal side effects such as sleepiness, a little anxiety (it hits me for about an hour and then goes away completely) and a little bit of a loopy feeling. I did not realize I was past the 4 days and had only been taking one pill (my memory has been terrible the past few days), so I was going to start taking the 2 pills yesterday (Feb 20th). I forgot the 2nd dosage on the 20th and did not realize it until the 21st after I started feeling a crazy rapid heartbeat, severe anxiety (i wrestled with it for about 4 hours before calming down), as well as dizziness and the ...
