white pill with 13 2 on one side blank the other

I found a pill i dont recognize, it is a large, white pill, oblong, with 13 2 on one side with a line score mark between the 13 and 2 and it is blank on the other side. ## @L Hill, Based on your description, the closest match I came across is a white oblong shaped pill with the number 13 and letter G on one side (with a score line in between the 13 | G); and like yours it is also blank on the other side. This particular pill is identified as an 800mg Gabapentin tablet, used for treating neuropathic pain. For verification, it's size is reported to be approximately 19mm and is manufactured by a company called Glenmark Generics. Does this sound like a possibility? ## I take Metformin 1000mg and the 13 2 with score mark in middle is on pill ## That is correct. It is metformin 1000 mg.

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. Not to sure about that. ## Things to consider - how long have you taken the medication, what exactly do you take it for, what other medications do you take (prescriptiion & OTC). 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...

What is amit/gaba/lido cream?

Thought there would be some instructions and side effect information in the bag when I picked up my prescription, but don't have any info. Can you help? ## Hi Dean, The Gaba stands for Gabapentin and the Lido stands for Lidocaine. I'm not entirely certain of the other abbreviation, but do have my suspicions that it stands for Amitriptyline. Both Amitriptyline and Gabapentin are known for coming in pill form and I have also heard of Gabapentin being mixed in these types of creams by compounding pharmacies. However, I have not been able to verify the same when it comes to Amitriptyline. I just don't see any other medication name with this prefix. Aside from the prefix, the other thing that leads me to believe that Amit stands for Amitriptyline is that NIH lists it as being mar...

ic gabapentin 300 mg bladder side effects

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. The leakage is small and occurs in my sleep. ## Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant that has also been proven to help with certain types of nerve pain. This is not listed among the normal side effects, which may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and weight gain.

gabapentin causing a metallic taste in mouth

I recently started taking gabapentin to alleviate nerve pain from fibromyalgia, but now I am having a metal taste in my mouth and all the teeth brushing in the world doesn't stop it. I am also eating myself out of house and home with this med.... anyone else have this problem, and if so, how do I stop it? ## Hello, Strephannie! How are you? I'm sorry about the problems that you're having. The FDA does list these issues as possible side effects of taking Gabapentin, along with dizziness, headache, dry mouth and mood swings. However, most side effects do tend to improve, as your body gets used to the medication, but it may take a month or so. But weight gain is a problem that most people have when taking this medication and that doesn't usually change, as long as they are ...

Pain Management Drs. & New FDA Rules

I have been in pain management for a long time due to a congenital cervical fusion which caused the need for a 2 level surgical intervention in 2009 at C3/4 & C4/5..That area remains pain free but all the pain moved up to base of my skull, C1/2 & C2/3 & all muscles on both sides of my neck & upper back, myofascial pain. So, my pain Dr. is decreasing patients dosages due to the new FDA rules. I am now going on my 3rd day of severe neck pain, ruined Christmas, and am ready for a bullet.

White scored oblong/oval pill 13 2, blank on one side

This is a rather large white oval tablet with 13 and 2 on one side and blank on the other, scored down the middle. What is it? I can't find any information. Any help would be much appreciated! ## @ARA, Based on your description, the closest match I'm finding is an 800mg Gabapentin tablet, used for neuropathic pain. It's depicted as a white oblong shaped pill imprinted with "G | 13" on one side and blank on the other -(but scored down the center on both sides). The only logical thing I can think of is that you may have misinterpreted the G for a 2 depending on the condition of the pill. For reference, this particular tablet is reported to be approximately 19mm in size and is manufactured by a company called Glenmark Generics. Any chance this could be your pill? ## No,...

green pill gabapentin

I have been taking Gabapentin 600mg. in a light green oval tablet for 6 mo. for neuro pain. Each morning with no side effects. My last prescription was a white oval tablet with APO on one side and Gab.600 on the other side. I quickly brought this to my pharmacists attention. He reassured me it was the same thing. Since Iv been taking it 1 week I feel bad. Im weak, poor balance,sleep around the clock, and cant remember common words. Any idea would really help.Thank you. ## Hello, Ann! How are you feeling? Sorry about the problem that you're having. There is a chance that it's due to side effects from the medication, or these symptoms could be entirely unrelated. Some of these anticonvulsants that affect brain chemicals can cause such issues with long-term use. Have you consulted ...

Gabapentin and addiction

My husband is prescribed gabapentin. He has been taking it for about four years now. He first took it while in rehab to overcome opiate addiction. He can take ten 600mg tablets at once and go about his day. When he runs out he buys it through other means. When he can't find it, he takes opiates. I am an extreme enabler and I give him money every week. He lies and steals and pawns things to support his habit. I need help. I don't know what to do. He wants help but doesn't want to go to rehab. How can I help him and save our family? ## Sara, that's tough to hear. You pretty much described me. My wife took our 3 kids and stayed with her parents for a week. It scared me so bad that I let my pill addiction ruin my life. I talked her in to coming back and I continued to take p...

gabapentin made by camber

Does anyone have severe stomach cramps with this medicine? I started with 600 2 pills 3 times a day. ## You started with that high of a dosage? That could be causing your problem. Normally, this medication is started at a lower dosage and slowly titrated up, as needed. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight gain. Have you discussed it with your doctor? You'll most likely need to go to a lower dose for awhile. ## IM ON THAT MEDICINE, GABAPENTIN, FOR STINGING NERVE DAMAGE, DOSE WAS 300 X 3 A DAY, I FOUND THAT IT MADE ME NOD OFF,...BY CRACKING MY HEAD ON THE TABLE, THATS WHEN I FOUND OUT I WAS NODDING OFF,I KNEW IT WAS TOO STRONG AT THAT DOSE, THEY SHOULD OF STARTED U ON A MUCH LOWER DOSE, THAT PROABLY WHY IT HURTING, LOWER DOSE.

Gabapentin Side Effects

I am taking 600mg 2xs per day and am experiencing tingling and numbness in extremities (hands, feet, arms etc). I also have a metallic taste in my mouth. Has anyone else had these side effects on Gabapentin? ## Have you consulted your doctor about these symptoms? It can cause a very dry mouth, which may actually be contributing to the metallic taste, but it hasn't been known to cause the tingling and numbness in most people that use it. ## correct only the activas by teva green tablet r636 are the only decent ones made in america that work well other than greenstone made in the states as well work. all others are garbage imo. only take fill with activas greens which are the only green tablets or greenstone white tablets. all others are made out the states and cause severe headaches ...

gabapentin 600 mg half discard

I had initially broken tablets in half and then read instructions to take at next dose or asap or throw away. I am afraid I jumped the gun in breaking them. Are these half pills less effective? Is there a danger? I have this need to know why discard. ## Yes, they do need to be used within a couple days of splitting them, they tend to lose effectiveness very fast, thus you do need to dispose of them. Side effects to this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, weight changes and mood swings.

They have me on gabbapentin 600 mg 3 times a day (1200mg at bed time). So a total of 2400mg daily for bipolar and anxiety. I've become heavier in weight and impotent. Are these side effects and should I be taking anything else with it? Gabapentin works well but these side effects are making me not want to take it. ## Hello, Will! How are you? Yes, those can be side effects of this medication, as reported by the FDA. You may also experience dry mouth, dizziness, mood swings and headache.

Gabapentin 600 milligrams

I was just prescribed some Gabapentin 600mg after being on the 300m for about 2 months. the later did nothing for the pain in my foot which the doctor says is nerve damage from being frost bitten a long time ago. I really do not think that they (doctors ) really know what is wrong with my foot. I have not been ministerd any type of testing. I believe that my doctors gave me this to pacify me. I have been reading on this website that this drug takes a long time to take effect something like 8 months to a year, and that it is not habit forming. I was prescribed 180 pills with 5 refills which makes me wonder why so many pills for so long. so far the 600mg are doing nothing for the pain in my foot, Does anyone know of this med helping them in any way. I really need some help for my foot sho...
