Prescription Drugs that will give you congestive Kidney failure.

Gabapentin 300 mg.cap, Protonix 40 mg.Tab., Amitiza 24 MCG cap, Zegerid 40-1100 Cap, MRI with Contrast ## Gabapentin aka neurontin controls seizures, assists with sleep. I take 800 each night with 12.5 zolpidem which is time released. Ive never slept so well. ## Of the medications you listed, Gabapentin, Protonix, and the contrast medium have all been known to have detrimental effects on the kidney, though such occurrences are very rare. How severe is it, and what treatment options has your doctor suggested? Do you have high blood pressure, or a cardiac condition?

neuropathic pain

Has anyone used this drug for neuropatic pain or trigeminal neuralgia? I've been taking neurontin. It helps a little with the pain, but seems to also be causing weight gain. Thanks. ## I have been using neurotin for a few years and have been very pleased with it. it relieves my neuropathy, that is very mild. I tried topamax for a while and had HORRIBLE side effects. Run from it. ## I have a lot of nerve damage in my feet and legs. The doc put me on Neurotin for awhile, but didn't help much. Then he gave me Tramadol and this really helps with the pain. ## Mine was described/diagnosed as nonspecific neuropathic pain. Neurontin,Cymbalta and a few lesser known drugs were tried. At present Topomax and Lyrica are giving the most complete relief for me in years. Side effects are still ...

Oblong Pill White And Yellow With 511 Carved Into It

found this pill in my sons pack pack and I want to know what it is ## I haven't been able to find an exact listing for this, but the closest match I'm seeing is a white elliptical/oval shaped pill marked with 511 on one side and blank on the other (in black ink). There doesn't appear to be any yellow on either side, so I'm assuming that this probably isn't your pill. Hopefully this result can at least narrow down some of your options. Another person here on the site was looking for this same pill and was under the impression that it's probably something that's available over the counter. Have you tried asking your son where he got it from? ## I found this very big white pill while cleaning the garage. ( yeah a guy cleaning the garage) anyway it say: A 511 in ...

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 ...

Was on dilantin for almost 48 years now vimpat

I had a seizure when 13 years old and put on dilantin. Had 2 more seizures till I was 21 and no more. I am now 61 years old. So it has been 40 years and no seizures. Mayo clinic md said per eeg I can have a seizure if I don't take seizure meds (?). From there he weaned me off dilantin and put me vimpat. I have been fully on vimpat for 1.5 months. My walking is bad - due to my cerebellum, which is bad due to the dilantin. Since on vimpat my unnormal gait has changed with different unnormal attributes. I have recently acquired tinnitus.... I am a buzzing bee. Unsure if it's from the vimpat or other reasons. I am trying to see my gp and neurologist about this - but still waiting for some questions answered. Like to my gp's nurse - should I see my gp 1st or do you want to refer ...

over the counter substitute for gabapentin

I am presently taking gabapentin and if I forget 1 tablet it is awful. I can't sleep and my legs ache and the next morning because of the lack of sleep I can not function. I am on this medicine for back pain and I do believe it helps.. I would like to get off this drug and maybe try something natural but not sure what is in this. I have read several horror stories that have concerned me on the withdrawal from this drug. Just looking for something that may be a natural substitute. Thank you so much.. By the way I am 68 years old and take 600 mg at bedtime.. ## Hello, Eloise! How are you? Unfortunately, there is no over the counter equivalent. Rather than missing tablets, if you have a smart phone, there are quite a few reminder apps available for free that you can set to go off, so t...

does gabapentin show up at a lab test

In court today I had to take a on spot drug screen, I passed and failed for everything. 3 days ago I took some gabapentin for a headache.. It didnt show up on the on spot test but they want to send it to the lab to test me for synthetic. Will it show up at the lab test or am I good? ## Last I knew gabapentin doesn't show up on a regular 12 pannell test. They have 2 have a specific test. That was in 2018. Does anyone know if this is still correct?

White round pill with L122 on one side and a line on the other

Please help me ID this pill. Is it Clonazepam? I have multiple seizures and I save one to stop having one. To take if a seizure starts, he tells me to take this med. ## This tablet contains 100mgs of Lamotrigine, which is an anticonvulsant, but this one is usually taken regularly as a preventative, not to stop a seizure that's already started. (NDC 16714-372) Inactive ingredients: - Lactose Monohydrate - Sodium Starch Glycolate Type a Potato - Povidone - Magnesium Stearate - Talc Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, mood signs and weight changes. ## It is lamotrigine, be careful.

Gabapentin and opiate withdrawals

Does gabapentin help at all with opiate withdrawals? Does it make it at all any more comfortable? ## It may help alleviate some of the symptoms and prevent the risk of possible seizures, according to FDA reports. Has your doctor prescribed it for you? Its typical side effects may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes. Are you on any other medications? ## I've been off methadone for 9 days and I took 3 Co-codamol. Will that make my withdrawals even worse? Also, does gabapentin help with opiate withdrawal? ## Hello, I am currently on day 6 of being off opiates after a 60-80mg (give or take a day) habit for 2 years... My first 2 days I didn't use anything to cope with withdrawals. Over the next 3 days, I took 900mg of gabapentin, 600mg of gab...

nerve pain

I recently had transposition of ulnar nerve, about a month ago. I am in horrible, chronic pain. Neurontin does not seem to be working. My pain management dr mentioned Topamax. How do I deal with this constant nerve pain. It is in my left hand, little finger and ring finger. ## I am very sorry about what you're dealing with, nerve pain is terrible. What is your current dose of Neurontin? You might do better with the Topomax, if your doctor thinks you should try it. It does work well for many people. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, alopecia, anemia, and anorexia. Are you on any other medications?

How long does it take Neurontin to get out of your system?

I have been prescribed Neurontin and would like to know how long does it take to come out of your system? It is causing too many problems for me. Can you stop suddenly or do you have to ween your self from them?? ## Hi, Sweet Pea! Sorry about the problems that it's causing you. What types of symptoms have you been experiencing? How long have you been taking it? If you've been on it for awhile, at a high dose, suddenly stopping it could cause a risk of seizures, since it's an anticonvulsant. It is generally best to taper off of these types of medications. Have you discussed it with your doctor? ## I'm not on gabapentin anymore. I took one 300 mg 3 months ago that my Dr told me to take for my nerve pain and m.s. But I took a drug panel on July 15th. And today is August 1st...

side effects of epitec

I am bipolar 2 or so they say. I have been taking epiec 200 and rispadol. I have lost the will to live without the depression of course and i have become an angry horrible person that no one can be around. I have shakes in the head and tiredness that is so not me. I have started to reducing the meds and is on 50 now. I am feeling much better and the old me is returning. Why do people think epitec is such a wonder drug? ## Epitec contains the active ingredient Lamotrigine. Risperdal contains the active ingredient Risperidone. That said, they can both cause the types of effects you experienced and this may have been compounded if you were taking them both at the same time. Have you spoken to your doctor about this problem? ## My daughter has been on Epitec for months now. She started with...

Gabapentin shelf life

My prescription was from two years ago. Now I have the same nerve pain in my upper arm and I have some 100 mg capsules left over. Do not want to see doctor for the same thing. Can I take the capsules now? ## Update: I am having good results from the Gabapentin. ## Hello, Shirley! How are you? I'm glad to see that the medication is working for you. Dry product medications, such as tablets, or capsules with powder, do not go bad once expired, but they may lose some efficacy with time. Thus, it is best to be careful, and if it doesn't work as well as it should, consulting your doctor for a fresh prescription would be the best option. The side effects of this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. ## Doctor told me the two year old ones...

Oblong bluegreen MRK 951 tablet

I've found two posts similar to this tablet that was found in my bottle of Levetiracetam (epilepsy medication). It looks nothing like my pills and I have no idea what it is.

Urbanol and Lexamil

Hi Guys, I've started on Lexamil and Urbanol and noticed a spike in my heart rate. I normally get an average of 100 - 120 and max of 160bpm in my cycling workouts but now see I've jumped to a max 240bpm and average of 190pbm this week. Im 38, 86kg , and rather fit. Please advise if these meds could be the reason? Thank you ## If you experience an accelerated heart rate, while taking the Escitalopram in the Lexamil, you should speak to your doctor, as that could be due to a dangerous reaction to the medication, and you might need to try something else. Typical side effects usually include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?
