Gabapentin side effects (sleepy, feeling 'drunk' & memory loss)
1 Reply RSS
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...

Why can't you take gabapentin with suboxone
4 Replies RSS
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 ...

Is there a difference between nt151 gabapentin and d25
Post a Reply
I've been taking gabapentin nt151's and they work well. Then they switched it to d25's and they suck bad! Now they mixed them and I know I'm not crazy because I took the d25's first and felt nothing, then I took the nt151's and they worked like they were supposed to. How do I just get the nt151's? The pharmacy says there's no difference, just different makers. They almost think I'm making it up, but why make something up like that? I need to know what to do? Please help if you can.

I take 300 mg gabapentin at night for post operative foot pain and have started itching profusely does this med cause that and if so how long do you have to be off of it before it subsides? ## Hello, Nana! How are you? Yes, according to the FDA, it has been known to cause this as a side effect in some people that take it, along with nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight changes. Have you consulted your doctor? They can help you determine whether or not it is due to the medication, for sure, as well as what you can do to help alleviate it. As to how long it will take to stop, it really depends on how long you've been taking it, it could take a few days, or a week. ## Thank you.

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 take 100mg each night to allow myself a nights sleep without my mind racing through thoughts. My neurologist said the only side affect is sleep. Was I too trusting. ## Hello, Barbara! How are you? All medications carry the risk of causing side effects and yes, it can cause for more than just drowsiness.

I take 100 ic gabapentin 3 times/day for sciatica. Now I find that my bladder leaks about once a week which is unnerving. Has this been reported as a side effect? ## Didn't give enough information about my bladder leakage.

is gabapentin the same as lyrica
4 Replies RSS
I tried gabapentin 300mg. (instead of Lyrica 50mg.) the first time I used it, it made my heart pound so bad I could not use it, could I use a smaller mgs. of gabapentin. I have spinal stenosis, I have diabetes, my legs jumps all over, can't sleep because of it. ## Hello, Betty! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems you experienced. No, they are not the same. Lyrica contains the active ingredient Pregabalin, it is in the same class of medications, but different. Thus, it may work better for you. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, weight gain and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Your dose isn't high enough for neuropathy. I have taken it for 11yrs and I'm on 800mg 3 times a day. Racing heart ha...

Gabapentin/How long do these stay in the urine???
25 Replies RSS
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 ...

How many 100 mg Gabapentin capsules equal 600 mg capsules of Lyrica? I'm in the process of changing Primary Care Physicians and will not have enough Lyrica to last until my new patient appointment.

gabapentin dot physical

I am trying to find out if gabapentin is ok to be in the system (body) of a truck driver. Legal presciption from a doctor. ## Can a truck driver pass a DOT physical if he takes gabapentin? ## Hello, Jeanie! How are you? I'm sorry, but from what I've found the answer is no. There is an automatic disqualification for anyone taking any type of antiseizure medication. This is due to the fact that the person either has epilepsy, or if they are taking it for nerve pain or mood disorders, the medication could put them at risk of a seizure, if they miss a dose or are late taking it. Having a seizure while driving could be very dangerous. The FDA lists the typical side effects to this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight changes. Is there a...

Expired Gabapentin 300 mg

I found a bottle of my Gabapentin dated 3/8/2011. Should I throw them away or can i take them cause i no longer have insurance? ## This medication does not become dangerous, once expired, but it can lose efficacy, so it may not work as well as it did, when it was new. Thus it would be best to dispose of it and see a doctor for a new prescription. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight gain. Is there anything else I can help with? ## I have a box of gabapentin in its sealed package (18 months old). Are they still good to use for my dog?
