keto 10 lido 5 cyclo 4 gaba 4

Dr sent me this for my ear. I have tinnitus and meniere's disease. Does this work?? ## I have meniere's disease but haven't had a bout in about a year now THANK GOD!!!! I just recently had ringing in the ears but it went away by end of the day. It goes as no comes once a week. But I believe after I stopped taking Gabapentin 30omg 4 x's a day I stopped getting dizzy. So far so good. I suggest if your taking Gabapentin to slowly taper down and fully off of it it's a horrible drug ## From what you've listed, this contains Ketorolac, Lidocaine, Cyclobenzaprine, and Gabapentin, combined like this they are often used to treat topical pain, and inflammation. Typical side effects may include skin redness, rash, and irritation. Is it helping you?

over the counter substitute for gabapentin

I am presently taking gabapentin and if I forget 1 tablet it is awful. I can't sleep and my legs ache and the next morning because of the lack of sleep I can not function. I am on this medicine for back pain and I do believe it helps.. I would like to get off this drug and maybe try something natural but not sure what is in this. I have read several horror stories that have concerned me on the withdrawal from this drug. Just looking for something that may be a natural substitute. Thank you so much.. By the way I am 68 years old and take 600 mg at bedtime.. ## Hello, Eloise! How are you? Unfortunately, there is no over the counter equivalent. Rather than missing tablets, if you have a smart phone, there are quite a few reminder apps available for free that you can set to go off, so t...

does gabapentin show up at a lab test

In court today I had to take a on spot drug screen, I passed and failed for everything. 3 days ago I took some gabapentin for a headache.. It didnt show up on the on spot test but they want to send it to the lab to test me for synthetic. Will it show up at the lab test or am I good? ## Last I knew gabapentin doesn't show up on a regular 12 pannell test. They have 2 have a specific test. That was in 2018. Does anyone know if this is still correct?

Gabapentin and opiate withdrawals

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...

Gabapentin shelf life

My prescription was from two years ago. Now I have the same nerve pain in my upper arm and I have some 100 mg capsules left over. Do not want to see doctor for the same thing. Can I take the capsules now? ## Update: I am having good results from the Gabapentin. ## Hello, Shirley! How are you? I'm glad to see that the medication is working for you. Dry product medications, such as tablets, or capsules with powder, do not go bad once expired, but they may lose some efficacy with time. Thus, it is best to be careful, and if it doesn't work as well as it should, consulting your doctor for a fresh prescription would be the best option. The side effects of this medication may include nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. ## Doctor told me the two year old ones...

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.

Alcohol and Gabapentin

Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic.

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...

Gabapentin for Restless Leg Syndrome

I was just given a prescription for gabapentin 300mg 90 minutes before bedtime. Can increase 300mg every night to a max of 1200. This increase is weekly. I have symptoms of restless leg syndrome but my problem is much more than RLS. I have heavy legs and problems with balance. I was on Requip with some help to the symptoms but developed compulsive gambling problem. Is anyone else in a similar situation or have any advice for me as to what to expect. I have had this problem for over 5 years. It started with just kinda stubbing your toe as I walked and progressed to turing to walk a certain direction and my upper body moved but my legs did not follow. Things like stepping up on a curb became something to think about and prepare for before I attempted it. My legs and ankles tire easily. Th...

Gabapentin and Sleep Apnea

Does Gabapentin enhance sleep apnea? ## Hi Mare - By "enhance", are you asking whether Gabapentin increases sleep apnea, or whether it helps to treat it? ## I meant increases. Thanks ## I found a research study on PubMed titled "Gabapentin acutely increases the apnea-hypopnea index in older men: data from a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study." You can read through what they say, but they ultimately concluded "gabapentin worsened sleep breathing acutely compared with placebo". Note that it was not a longer term clinical trial so more research is warranted. A longer version of the study is also published at: Hope this helps! ## Thanks Roy. I will check it out.

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 ...

Gabapentin false drug test

I have to take a urine drug test weekly and it gets sent off to a lab to be double checked. The last 3 weeks it says I failed for Gabapentin. I have not taken that kind of medicine my whole life. The only medication I am taking is Suboxone. Can someone please tell me why or how this is happening? ## I can tell you that some people that have been in jail have tested positive for cocaine while taking Gabapentin. They have actually stopped giving it to people in jail for this reason. I don't know the truth in this but I was told that Gabapentin pulls false positives constantly! Sometimes for benzos other times for cocaine. You tell me why? If there's a doctor out there please respond!
