Fake Gabapentin From Combitic Global?

I recieved 100 mg capsules from Combitic Global. They are not helping my Arthritis at all. I've been taking Gabapentin for years and never experienced this before I lost my insurance. I read a number of messages from customers saying their meds weren't working. Has anyone else experienced this from this company? I won't be ordering from them again-that's for sure! ## My investigation suggests that Combitic Global appears to be a well known drug manufacturer within the region of India. However I think it goes without sayin' that the quality assurance in India versus that of the US FDA regulatory standards may vary significantly. This is one of the biggest problems patients face when opting to not go through a licensed pharmacy that requires a prescription (whereas eve...

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...

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system

I was taking 300 mg neurontin. 1 in am, 1 at noon and 2 at bedtime. I was prescribed the med in May of 2013. Increased later when not helping with foot numbness. It has been almost 2 weeks since i tapered myself off of the drug and i still feel nausea in the am which affects my eating. Please advise how long it will take this med to be out of my system? Thank you. ## Hi Cindy, Sorry to hear about the nausea you've been experiencing lately. From what I've been researching, in most cases it usually ends up being around 2 to 5 days for this type of medication to clear your system. However because you've been taking it for about a year, I'd imagine your body could still probably use some time to get accustomed to not having it on a regular basis. One study I found mentioned ...

what's in my compound cream

I have a compound cream and am trying to figure out what is in it exactly before using it... My bottle reads: Gaba 3 / ketop 2 / lido 2.5 / Bupiv 2.5 ## Hi there.. Did you ever figure out what was in your cream? Got my cream today & has exactly same contents.. But can't figure out what they are.. Thanks in advance.. ## Based on the abbreviations you provided, this is a specially ordered cream used for topical pain relief, so ingredients can vary from area to area, but in this case, it contains Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine, and Bupivacaine. There are some details from Medline Plus and DailyMed about the various ingredients. In this case, side effects are typically only relevant to its topical application and are listed as possibly including skin irritation, redness, burning,...

Memory loss from Gabapentin?

I have a really bad memory these past 5yrs. I've been taking gabapentin the past 7yrs, I also take oxycodone, oxymorphone, mobic and stopped taking valium and a muscle relaxer about a year ago. I don't consume cannabis anymore. It's been about 15 yrs since I have. But when I did smoke back in the day I smoked a lot for a good 10yrs. I've noticed lately that I cant remember anything. When someone introduces themselves I just totally forget 2 mins later. I have tried the trick where you say the person's name over 5x's or use it in a sentence to help remember. But to no avail. Even at work, I'm told 3 things to do, I only remember 2 of them, or when it's time to do a task at work I just totally forget. It's affecting my job and making me look very stupid...

Side effect from Gabapentin

I have been taking Gabapentin since Feb 2015. I was taking 2 (300 mg) only at bedtime. I have been having mouth soreness and a taste I can not explain, even ice water makes me want to gag. Has anyone had any side effect from taking this, and having a sore mouth, with a nasty taste? ## I forgot to add on my previous post, that my Gabapentin was increased to 3 (300 mg) at bedtime April 16th, my mouth soreness got worse, and I have tried the Nystatin swish and swallow twice with no results. Water burns my mouth, this medication is the only new one I have started recently ## Hello, Deb! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Yes, according to the detailed side effects provided by the FDA, Gabapentin has been known to cause this, though it's not ...

side effects of gabapentin

Is it ok to drink wine while taking this medication? ## No. Alcohol will only add to the rapid heart beat associated with this drug, and shortness of breath and general feelings of discomfort will follow. Gabapentin is useful in small doses for peripheral neuropathies and certain epilepsies, but side effects abound ~ many of which are life threatening. ## I'm not sure what Jim means by many of them being life threatening. Jim can you please post back with more precise details? As to the problems with alcohol, it's really that it can cause an aggravation of all of the side effects, so you may feel more nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and etc. than you would otherwise. Learn more Gabapentin details here. ## It's not a good idea to mix alcohol with any medication. With gabapentin...

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/How long do these stay in the urine???

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 ...

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 was having difficulties with breathing and sleeping. My blood pressure has also been higher than normal. I guess that everyone is different and it affects everyone differently. My wife also takes 300mg, two tablets 3x daily and she's been having great results. Like I said, everything affects everyone differently and as long as you pay attention...

new medication

My husband was recently prescribed gabapentin 300 mg 1 cap at night for neuropathy. He took it one time and drank a beer about 3;00am the nest day around noon his face began to swell up on both sides and his mouth on the inside went numb. He took benedryl but continued to have swelling even 24 hours later. Could this be an allergic reaction? Thank you. Jan ## Almost certainly, seek medical advice without delay; allergies can be fatal. ## Hi Jan, The US National Library of Medicine states that facial swelling is in fact an allergic reaction associated with Gabapentin on the following page: ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/PMHT0010419/?report=details#side_effects Ironically, they also list facial swelling as an allergic reaction to Benadryl, but seeing as he took Gabapentin first, this sound...

I was told that they are and i wanna know for certain as im not wanting to take them no more. ## No they are not a narcotic.

GABA DICL CREAM

Does the cream actually go through your bloodstream? I have taken Gabapentin in the past which started out okay for a while, but then I had an issue with it & went off the pill form of the medication. I was told since it doesn't go through your bloodstream that the cream should be fine. Please let me know what you think and also if you know whether it's true about it not going into your bloodstream and causing any of the same side effects as the pill form. Thank you. ## Hello, Diane! How are you? A little does, but just trace amounts, not any significant amount that should cause side effects or reactions. Most of the reactions to these topical creams are limited to skin irritation wherever you applied it. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you, that helped me q...

apo gabapentin 300mg side effects

Since taking this drug for a week I have a mouth full of many lesions or canker sores can this be connected with this drug. It is quite severe the cancers or ulcers are the size of a Nicole each one and there must be over 10. Extremely sore. Salt water rinse every two hours and medicated numbing liquid like a mouth wash so I can eat once a day. Hello of a diet. Went off the meds for now. My mouth is just too sore ## Hi, Sherril! Sorry about how miserable you are, that's quite awful. From what I can find, it has been reported that Gabapentin can do this, though it is a very rare side effect. Have you consulted your doctor? There are other medications you can try that may not cause this problem, such as Lyrica. Learn more Lyrica details here. Sometimes one medication just doesn't ...

gabapentin 300 mg cap teva or gabapentin 300 mg apo

Otherwise they are completely the same. Gabapentin is a generic for Neurontin, this is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to help with certain types of nerve pain. Common side effects may include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema. You can read more here: Do you have any other questions? ## Thanks so much for the answer.

Gabapentin or APO Gabapentin Dundee change

I’m in New Zealand. My usual funded Gabapentin has changed drug company, to a funded APOTEX Gabapentin. Anyone taking the same stuff. I was on 200mg capsules. These new APO ones are 300mg. The pharmacy told me they had changed but did not mention the mg had changed. Meaning I’m taking 500mg extra per day. BUT even though I’m on a bigger dosage they don’t seem to be working.

Gabapentin with Hydrocodone

I just took my second dose of gabapentin 100 mgs this morning. I was also prescribed hydrocodone 10/325. Is it safe for me to take the hydrocodone if it has been eight hours ago since I took the gabapentin? I know it takes a long time for gabapentin to get out of your system and I can't be too safe when mixing medications. Thanks in advance to any help I get. ## It should be okay to take them together, if they have both been prescribed for you. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and mood changes. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Will I get the same level of pain relief from stopping norco 10-325 mg and starting 300 mg gabapentin? ## If it were me it wouldn't, but everyone's different.

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 ...
