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 gabapentin, and 900mg of gabapentin to help with sleep and have had 0 withdrawals throughout the day. (900 day-3, 600 day-4, and 900 day-5) am I prolonging my opiate withdrawals? Or am I just waiting for a disaster to happen and would have to go through gabapentin withdrawals?

Re: Bobby (# 3)

Really hard to say about your situation, but just be careful that you don't take too much of the Gabapentin as there will be some side effects from them.. Good Luck
