Anticonvulsant Overview

Anticonvulsants (also commonly known as antiepileptic drugs or as antiseizure drugs) are a diverse group of pharmacological agents used in the treatment of epileptic seizures. Anticonvulsants are also increasingly being used in the treatment of bipolar disorder[1] and borderline personality disorder,[2] since many seem to act as mood stabilizers, and for the treatment of neuropathic pain.[3] Anticonvulsants suppress the excessive rapid firing of...

Withdrawal symptoms from vimpat

I started taking vimpat i think last June or July. Not too sure, the meds have messed with my mind big time. Stayed at 200 mg, kept having grand mal seizures so eventually got up to 600mg a day. Had double vision, couldn't walk, numbness, memory loss, acted like a zombie, slept a lot, and was depressed. So she took me down to 500mg, nothing changed. I took myself down to 300, 100 in the am and 200 at night. Double vision and loss of leg control seemed to go away but i still couldn't think straight and wasn't myself. I have taken myself completely off vimpat to try to have a life again before the seizure comes that kills me, but i feel very, very depressed, alone, scared and ultimately just want to die. I can't just go see a doctor though due to Medicaid cutting me off wh...

What Is The Best Generic Of Lamictal

I've been taking the generic for Lamictal for about five years. Recently I've been feeling different at about the beginning of the year. I use to take the white ones but now I am taking a generic by Taro. What is the best generic for this drug? I never really payed any attention until I started getting this crazy migraines. If anyone has any insights it would be much appreciated. ## There's really no way to say which is the best, since different people can react differently, so it depends on what works for you. The best idea I can give you is to check with your pharmacy and see who manufactured the ones that you used to take and ask if they can order them back in for you. They usually can and will sometimes do so for their regular customers. Does anyone else have any advice ...

White scored oblong/oval pill 13 2, blank on one side

This is a rather large white oval tablet with 13 and 2 on one side and blank on the other, scored down the middle. What is it? I can't find any information. Any help would be much appreciated! ## @ARA, Based on your description, the closest match I'm finding is an 800mg Gabapentin tablet, used for neuropathic pain. It's depicted as a white oblong shaped pill imprinted with "G | 13" on one side and blank on the other -(but scored down the center on both sides). The only logical thing I can think of is that you may have misinterpreted the G for a 2 depending on the condition of the pill. For reference, this particular tablet is reported to be approximately 19mm in size and is manufactured by a company called Glenmark Generics. Any chance this could be your pill? ## No,...

green pill gabapentin

I have been taking Gabapentin 600mg. in a light green oval tablet for 6 mo. for neuro pain. Each morning with no side effects. My last prescription was a white oval tablet with APO on one side and Gab.600 on the other side. I quickly brought this to my pharmacists attention. He reassured me it was the same thing. Since Iv been taking it 1 week I feel bad. Im weak, poor balance,sleep around the clock, and cant remember common words. Any idea would really help.Thank you. ## Hello, Ann! How are you feeling? Sorry about the problem that you're having. There is a chance that it's due to side effects from the medication, or these symptoms could be entirely unrelated. Some of these anticonvulsants that affect brain chemicals can cause such issues with long-term use. Have you consulted ...

Gabapentin and addiction

My husband is prescribed gabapentin. He has been taking it for about four years now. He first took it while in rehab to overcome opiate addiction. He can take ten 600mg tablets at once and go about his day. When he runs out he buys it through other means. When he can't find it, he takes opiates. I am an extreme enabler and I give him money every week. He lies and steals and pawns things to support his habit. I need help. I don't know what to do. He wants help but doesn't want to go to rehab. How can I help him and save our family? ## Sara, that's tough to hear. You pretty much described me. My wife took our 3 kids and stayed with her parents for a week. It scared me so bad that I let my pill addiction ruin my life. I talked her in to coming back and I continued to take p...

Round G / 50 pill ID

Looking for an ID of a Round, beige/peach looking pill with G on one side and 50 on the other. The inside of the 0 in the 50 is completely indented. ## Glenmark Generics lists this tablet as containing 50mgs of Topiramate, which is an anticonvulsant that is also used to treat some types of nerve pain, and certain mood disorders. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood changes, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## My wife is taking this pill and I read nothing but bad things about this pill. Why would Drs even perscribe it. Is it opioid and what is opiod . I took the bottle from. Her but it was perscribe to her. ## You sound ignorant. NO of course its not a opiod. Why dont you try asking her psych...

gabapentin made by camber

Does anyone have severe stomach cramps with this medicine? I started with 600 2 pills 3 times a day. ## You started with that high of a dosage? That could be causing your problem. Normally, this medication is started at a lower dosage and slowly titrated up, as needed. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight gain. Have you discussed it with your doctor? You'll most likely need to go to a lower dose for awhile. ## IM ON THAT MEDICINE, GABAPENTIN, FOR STINGING NERVE DAMAGE, DOSE WAS 300 X 3 A DAY, I FOUND THAT IT MADE ME NOD OFF,...BY CRACKING MY HEAD ON THE TABLE, THATS WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS NODDING OFF,I KNEW IT WAS TOO STRONG AT THAT DOSE, THEY SHOULD OF STARTED U ON A MUCH LOWER DOSE, THAT PROABLY WHY IT HURTING, LOWER DOSE.

Gabapentin Side Effects

I am taking 600mg 2xs per day and am experiencing tingling and numbness in extremities (hands, feet, arms etc). I also have a metallic taste in my mouth. Has anyone else had these side effects on Gabapentin? ## Have you consulted your doctor about these symptoms? It can cause a very dry mouth, which may actually be contributing to the metallic taste, but it hasn't been known to cause the tingling and numbness in most people that use it. ## correct only the activas by teva green tablet r636 are the only decent ones made in america that work well other than greenstone made in the states as well work. all others are garbage imo. only take fill with activas greens which are the only green tablets or greenstone white tablets. all others are made out the states and cause severe headaches ...

Also would like to know how long will they last before they expire? Thank you. ## correct only the activas by teva green tablet r636 are the only decent ones made in america that work well other than greenstone made in the states as well work. all others are garbage imo. only take fill with activas greens which are the only green tablets or greenstone white tablets. all others are made out the states and cause severe headaches and stomach issues and do not work nearly like the activas teva r636. took me forever to find them cause they are so low on stock on this generic. after a day worth of calls and...

gabapentin 600 mg half discard

I had initially broken tablets in half and then read instructions to take at next dose or asap or throw away. I am afraid I jumped the gun in breaking them. Are these half pills less effective? Is there a danger? I have this need to know why discard. ## Yes, they do need to be used within a couple days of splitting them, they tend to lose effectiveness very fast, thus you do need to dispose of them. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes and mood swings. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a new prescription for gabapentin 600 mg R 636, i need to know if these are time release so i can get these changed due to my job requirements, thanks ## correct only the activas by teva green tablet r636 are the only decent ones made in a...
