white pill s g 1 78 - are these gabapentin / neurontin

These pills are white, oblong and are scored like gabapentin are. On one side they have a S G and on the other is a 1 78. ## Hello, Gabby! How are you? Yes, this tablet is manufactured by ScieGen Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 800mgs of Gabapentin. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, dry mouth, and weight gain. However, there are many oval, white tablets that are scored, so please don't assume that they all contain Gabapentin. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Are they addictive if you take them every day?

Memory loss from Gabapentin?

I have a really bad memory these past 5yrs. I've been taking gabapentin the past 7yrs, I also take oxycodone, oxymorphone, mobic and stopped taking valium and a muscle relaxer about a year ago. I don't consume cannabis anymore. It's been about 15 yrs since I have. But when I did smoke back in the day I smoked a lot for a good 10yrs. I've noticed lately that I cant remember anything. When someone introduces themselves I just totally forget 2 mins later. I have tried the trick where you say the person's name over 5x's or use it in a sentence to help remember. But to no avail. Even at work, I'm told 3 things to do, I only remember 2 of them, or when it's time to do a task at work I just totally forget. It's affecting my job and making me look very stupid...

Side effect from Gabapentin

I have been taking Gabapentin since Feb 2015. I was taking 2 (300 mg) only at bedtime. I have been having mouth soreness and a taste I can not explain, even ice water makes me want to gag. Has anyone had any side effect from taking this, and having a sore mouth, with a nasty taste? ## I forgot to add on my previous post, that my Gabapentin was increased to 3 (300 mg) at bedtime April 16th, my mouth soreness got worse, and I have tried the Nystatin swish and swallow twice with no results. Water burns my mouth, this medication is the only new one I have started recently ## Hello, Deb! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Yes, according to the detailed side effects provided by the FDA, Gabapentin has been known to cause this, though it's not ...

side effects of gabapentin

Is it ok to drink wine while taking this medication? ## No. Alcohol will only add to the rapid heart beat associated with this drug, and shortness of breath and general feelings of discomfort will follow. Gabapentin is useful in small doses for peripheral neuropathies and certain epilepsies, but side effects abound ~ many of which are life threatening. ## I'm not sure what Jim means by many of them being life threatening. Jim can you please post back with more precise details? As to the problems with alcohol, it's really that it can cause an aggravation of all of the side effects, so you may feel more nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and etc. than you would otherwise. Learn more Gabapentin details here. ## It's not a good idea to mix alcohol with any medication. With gabapentin...

Gabapentin side effects (sleepy, feeling 'drunk' & memory loss)

Hey everyone. I've been taking Gabapentin for about 2 months now at 300mg 3x a day. I was prescribed it after having a tumor removed from my neck which resulted in nerve damage. They help with the pain for sure as it is at least manageable now where it wasn't before. But holy the side effects! I feel like I could fall asleep anywhere, anytime of the day. I also feel off balance all the time, almost like I feel 'drunk' to an extent. I'm also finding I'm dealing with memory loss. I have a hard time remembering what I did 20 mins ago! I guess my big question is, has anyone else dealt with side effects like this? Did they ever diminish over time? I'm going to see my surgeon in a couple weeks and thinking I may have to look at a different route but wanting some in...

Gabapentin/How long do these stay in the urine???

I was given a couple 400mg gabapentins from a friend for some migraines, I took them but found out that I will be having a drug screen and am worried that these pills can be detected, so please could someone let me know whether or not I'm worrying for nothing or if I have something to worry about, thanks ## If you've given yourself at least a few days, odds are that it's less likely to show up under any sort of urine, saliva, or blood test. What's more risky in my opinion, is the opportunity for a false-positive to show up. Where as it can sometimes show that you took something completely different and then you're left trying to explain yourself. The good thing is since most standard drug screens test for illicit drugs, controlled medications, and medications with a ...

I'm fixing to be put on probation for sum drug related charges (take note I was helping a friend and she set me up) but it was soboxone I got in trouble with that I had a prescription for and i got kicked out of the doctor so I've been taking neurotins 300-400mg to come off of them. Will neurotins show up in a drug test if they test for stuff like soboxone? ## I am located in Tennessee and really need help with my question ## Did you ever find out the answer to this question? I go in for a test tomorrow and was wondering the same thing.. I am also in Tennessee ## I never got an answer on here but my mom said they do not show up on a drug test cuz she takes neurontins also and i got tested in court so thankfully my charges got dropped ## Be careful...when they test for things lik...

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 ...

Gabapentin toothache

Will gabapentin work for a severe toothache? I have gabapentin and it says it's for nerve pain but it doesn't list tooth pain. I know I have an exposed nerve. The pain is excruciating. Please help. ## Take Ibuprofen 800 mg every 4 hours non stop for 24 hours.. it will eventually stop the pain from being as bad also gel caps are better ## I have been taking Gabapentin 300mg for a while and decided to stop because of the side effects. I was having difficulties with breathing and sleeping. My blood pressure has also been higher than normal. I guess that everyone is different and it affects everyone differently. My wife also takes 300mg, two tablets 3x daily and she's been having great results. Like I said, everything affects everyone differently and as long as you pay attention...

best generic brand of neurontin (gabapentin)

My pharmacy has recently stopped carrying Actavis generic Neurontin 100 mg. They also said they "could not order Actavis for me". So, I ended up purchasing the Brand Neurontin. My insurance picked up some but it was still $$$. Now that I've tried the brand it seems to work better at neuropathic pain control. Just wondering in May 2015 if anyone in the USA has found a generic Neurontin that they really like or works for them? I live in a small area with very few pharmacy options other than 2 big box chains. The monopoly works to their advantage as they rarely ever will 'order' any generic a person asks for. You tend to have to take whatever they are pushing that month. Picking up a script is like playing "musical chairs", every month or two a pill is a differe...

new medication

My husband was recently prescribed gabapentin 300 mg 1 cap at night for neuropathy. He took it one time and drank a beer about 3;00am the nest day around noon his face began to swell up on both sides and his mouth on the inside went numb. He took benedryl but continued to have swelling even 24 hours later. Could this be an allergic reaction? Thank you. Jan ## Almost certainly, seek medical advice without delay; allergies can be fatal. ## Hi Jan, The US National Library of Medicine states that facial swelling is in fact an allergic reaction associated with Gabapentin on the following page: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMHT0010419/?report=details#side_effects Ironically, they also list facial swelling as an allergic reaction to Benadryl, but seeing as he took Gabapentin first, this sound...

GABA DICL CREAM

Does the cream actually go through your bloodstream? I have taken Gabapentin in the past which started out okay for a while, but then I had an issue with it & went off the pill form of the medication. I was told since it doesn't go through your bloodstream that the cream should be fine. Please let me know what you think and also if you know whether it's true about it not going into your bloodstream and causing any of the same side effects as the pill form. Thank you. ## Hello, Diane! How are you? A little does, but just trace amounts, not any significant amount that should cause side effects or reactions. Most of the reactions to these topical creams are limited to skin irritation wherever you applied it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you, that helped me q...

Since taking this drug for a week I have a mouth full of many lesions or canker sores can this be connected with this drug. It is quite severe the cancers or ulcers are the size of a Nicole each one and there must be over 10. Extremely sore. Salt water rinse every two hours and medicated numbing liquid like a mouth wash so I can eat once a day. Hello of a diet. Went off the meds for now. My mouth is just too sore ## Hi, Sherril!

There are other medications you can try that may not cause this problem, such as Lyrica. Learn more Lyrica details here. Sometimes one medication just doesn't ...

Gabapentin or APO Gabapentin Dundee change

I’m in New Zealand. My usual funded Gabapentin has changed drug company, to a funded APOTEX Gabapentin. Anyone taking the same stuff. I was on 200mg capsules. These new APO ones are 300mg. The pharmacy told me they had changed but did not mention the mg had changed. Meaning I’m taking 500mg extra per day. BUT even though I’m on a bigger dosage they don’t seem to be working.
