Gabapentin and White Blood Cell Count

I just started taking Gabapentin a month ago and my white blood cell count is high, but never has been. Can this be why? Will I need to postpone any surgeries because of this? ## Yes, the FDA does list that as being a known side effect of Gabapentin, along with nausea, dehydration, somnolence, mood changes, and weight changes. As to whether or not you can have surgery that will depend on the opinion of the surgeon, and whether or not they actually detect a real infection, or if it seems that this has just been caused solely by the medication. What type of surgeries are you due to undergo? I know when I needed dental surgery, and my WBC count was high, they assumed it was due to my dental infections, so they did the surgery, anyway. It turns out they were correct, a couple weeks after su...

Gabapentin and Subutex breathing problems

So, I started taking subutex, now up to 16mg, and gabapentin 900mg x3 daily. I’ve been to the ER twice in one week. I have episodes feeling like I can't breath. Even though I am getting oxygen, my brain is telling me it’s not enough. I feel like I'm suffocating. I stopped taking gabapentin a week ago, even stopped subutex 16mg for 2 days. Still my breathing doesn't feel right. I just don't feel like myself. I’ve been back on subutex for 2 days. Has anybody felt this way on subutex? I have had an EKG twice, blood work, chest xray, cat scan of neck to check for blockage. I do have high blood pressure and I am wondering if the subutex is restricting my vessels causing decreased blood flow, not carrying enough oxygenated blood to my heart. Does anybody have...
