gabapentin withdrawal after only a week on it at low dose

Hi. Please help. Was only gabapentin 200mg at nighttime for just over a week. Side effects were awful. Really bad dizzy spaced out feeling. Heart racing. Couldn't hack it anymore so dropped down to 100mg for 2 nights then stopped. So total dose nor more than 2500mg in 12 days. Well I'm now day 19 post and everyday is like Groundhog Day. Dizzy and spaced out with a heavy feeling in the head. Can't drive, focus much or even read. Writing this is a chore! Some tachycardia and anxiety but would imagine this may be more to do with the frustration than anything else but who knows? Sleep is more or less ok. Drs have no idea, including pain specialists. They just quote me he half life and say should be been out of my body after 7 hours!! Read a lot about magnesium and been using it ...

Topiramate Drug Test And False Positive

I took a Topiramate 50mg for a migraine and i have a drug test for probation on friday. Will it show up? I dont use any other drugs. ## Hi sean, Although I don't think any probation test would cover this specific drug, Topiramate is generally excreted from the body within 4-5 days, in part, due to it's long 21 hour half-life. The example shown below, puts the half-life into better perspective: Monday - 50mg Tuesday - 25mg Wednesday - 12.5mg Thursday - 6.25mg Friday - 3.12mg Saturday - 1.56mg I'd say by Friday you should have 95% of it or more out of your system; especially if you're drinking plenty of fluids and eating clean. I hope this helps! ## I take Topamax too. After testing positive for a synethnic form of THC and I know I am clean. I starting researching about To...

Why can't you take gabapentin with suboxone

My doctor told me if you're on suboxene or subutex it's not a good idea to mix it with gabapentin. Why is this because I was taking gabapentin for 15 years ## Hello, Tessa! How are you? It is due to the depression of the central nervous system that can occur, when they are taken together, according to the FDA, it could result in respiratory distress, coma, respiratory failure, heart failure and possibly death. It is just best to avoid the combination, if other choices are available. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Why are you saying to one person it is ok to take gabapentine with suboxone and another that they shouldn't?? ## Hi Tessa some doctors are ok with it while some don't like doing it.my doctor said I could take gabapentine instead of my Lyrica with my ...

Topamax and anxiety/social phobia?

Hi everyone. My 14 year old daughter has been on topamax (25 mg twice daily) for a number of years. She is being treated for anxiety, depression, mood disorder, tics, ADHD and has recently added social phobias to her list of complaints. The meds being used to treat her are Risperodone for the mood, Clonidine for the tics, Prozac for the depression/anxiety, and Topamax to control weight gain that occurs with Risperodone (and possibly to help with anxiety/tics). As she gets older, she seems to be retreating into herself even more. The anxiety is amping up, the depression too. She sleeps all day, and hasn't wanted to leave the house all summer. When I do manage to get her out of the house, the social anxiety is too much for her and she has severe meltdowns. Before she was put on all th...

Effects of Lamotrigene

Last June I started coming off Lamotrigine. I was on 125mg per day to stabilize my moods. I suffer from anxiety, depression, ocd, bpd, It did help at the start and pushed me to do things, but then it would wear off and I was told to keep increasing, but it started to affect my liver, my depression got worse, sweating, jewelry going black, and a few other things and I wanted to come off it. I slowly decreased it but as I was I started to get the shakes, upper torso and hands. The psychiatrist put me on Zyprexa to help with the withdrawals and also Benztropine for the shaking/tremours. I was having too many suicidal thoughts so I came off Zyprexa, but I still had the shakes. The doctor then put me on Valdoxan (Antidepressant) but that ended up putting me on the couch and I couldn't do...

Gabapentin Drug Side Effects and Information

## Has anyone had any problems with taking this drug? I was given the drug for restless legs. ## I take 300mg. and have memory loss, tiredness so bad I'm not sure I want to continue taking it.The doc. wants me to try another drug to give me some umph.

A drug's side effects may diminish or vanish completely over time. A person's age may enter into the overall picture and,as always, a second opinion never hurt. ## Since taking it I have been getting a lot of colds/bronchitis duet to low energy and high white cell count. ## I have been taking it for 2 months and the effects are not getting any bett...

Trintellix and Gabapentin

My wife is prescribed Trintellix for depression. This is anti-depressant #3 in our effort to alleviate both anxiety and depression. She has a propensity for abusing benzos, but that is not an option now. We’re only on day 8, but she doesn’t appear to be making any progress. She has access to gabapentin and is finding that if she takes a large amount of this med (gabapentin), she can get temporary relief, experiencing some energy and mood enhancement. We’re talking about 2000mg to 3000mg at a time (once a day). Questions are: Is Gabapentin adversely masking any headway we might be making with Trintellix? Can Gabapentin, taken in these dosages, cause short-term and/or longterm negative effects for her? Obviously, we will run out of Gabapentin and this won’t be an o...

Gabapentin, a generic for Neurontin.

I found some of these in a baggie, are they used for recreation or do they have any kind of effect that would make someone take them that do not have the prescription ## Neurotion is not a recreactional drug. It is used primarily for Seizures but has alternate uses. It will not produce a high of any kind. ## Then I do not understand why would they be kept in a baggie next to other stuff ## Neurontin gives no effects of getting high. It is also prescribed for chronic pain. I don't know all the details but if it is a teen and they thought the pills were for pain they might be thinking that the pills are in the opiate category to get high which is a total misconception. This drug can be dangerous if not used correctly. I personally took it for pain and found no relief so my Dr. kept in...

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? ## What are they used for treating? ## Hi Kathy. Gabapentin, generic Neurontin, is used for treating seizure disorders and some forms of nerve pain. I have nerve pain due to damaged nerves ...

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

need to discuss with someone about the proper dosage of this med. ## There is really no set dosage for this, though you do need to start at a low dosage and gradually add more until you find the amount that works effectively for you. Most doctors will start with 100mgs taken 2 to 3 times a day, then go up to 300 and continue adding until they find what works for each patient. It would take a tremendous amount to OD on this, which is why so many doctors like to use it, they can take the dosage very high, without danger and it has very few side effects. Your best bet then, is to take your doctors advice on what you should be taking and how often. ## I just started gabapentin. My doctor told me to take 300 mg before bedtime for the first week and then move up to one every 12 hours and the ...

Right now as I right this I am loosing my balance at my computor. I am also having a hot flash at this minute. This has all occurred in the last week despite being on it for months. I also have cloudy urine. My question is has anyone experienced symptoms this dramatic and did they go away.

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 ...
