NEURONTIN FOR DIABETIC NEUROPATHY

I have diabetes and neuropathy with severe pain in my hands, feet, and legs. My doctor has prescribed Neurontin for me for the last 2 years and says it will take away the pain I am having. He has also prescribed hydrocodone for the pain. When I am out of hydrocodone the neurontin does not take away any of the pain I am having. But my doctor insists that it will. Should I keep taking it or should I stop. It seems like it does not do anything for me. Thank You Very Much DONALD BURKS ## Hi Domald Burks, how much do you take a day? This is important as long term use of gabapentin can be difficult to stop taking especially at higher doses. You are diabetic, are you on a magnesium restricted diet? If not you could supplement your diet with magnesium rich foods or take a magnesium supplement. ...

Can Neurontin, Zanaflex and Naprosyn cause a false positive

Can Neurontin 600 mg. 5 times a day and Zanaflex 4 mg. 3 times a day and Naprosyn 250 mg. 2 times a day and over the counter ibu's cause you to have a false positive test result for thc? ## Yes, I hadn't had marijuana for over 6 months but I was on the Gabapentin and I came up positive for THC. ## This has happened to me also. I have seizures and chronic kidney stones and have been in the ER more times than I would like. I take gabapentin 1800 mg a day and I tested positive for thc. I am 50 years old and have only smoked once in my life when I was 18. I looked online at the hospital's patient portal and they now have in my chart that I am an illegal drug user. I don't have any idea what to do about this! Any opinions on this? ## Hey there, Just so you know, gabapentin is...

nerve pain

I recently had transposition of ulnar nerve, about a month ago. I am in horrible, chronic pain. Neurontin does not seem to be working. My pain management dr mentioned Topamax. How do I deal with this constant nerve pain. It is in my left hand, little finger and ring finger. ## I am very sorry about what you're dealing with, nerve pain is terrible. What is your current dose of Neurontin? You might do better with the Topomax, if your doctor thinks you should try it. It does work well for many people. Its typical side effects may include nausea, dizziness, alopecia, anemia, and anorexia. Are you on any other medications?

How long does it take Neurontin to get out of your system?

I have been prescribed Neurontin and would like to know how long does it take to come out of your system? It is causing too many problems for me. Can you stop suddenly or do you have to ween your self from them?? ## Hi, Sweet Pea! Sorry about the problems that it's causing you. What types of symptoms have you been experiencing? How long have you been taking it? If you've been on it for awhile, at a high dose, suddenly stopping it could cause a risk of seizures, since it's an anticonvulsant. It is generally best to taper off of these types of medications. Have you discussed it with your doctor? ## I'm not on gabapentin anymore. I took one 300 mg 3 months ago that my Dr told me to take for my nerve pain and m.s. But I took a drug panel on July 15th. And today is August 1st...

I'm fixing to be put on probation for sum drug related charges (take note I was helping a friend and she set me up) but it was soboxone I got in trouble with that I had a prescription for and i got kicked out of the doctor so I've been taking neurotins 300-400mg to come off of them.

my sister is prescribed this and she is nodding out and stuff but she is also taking Clonazepam 1.0 mg i need details to give her about the drug that is negative to make her stop taking it plus what does a long term of pill taking do to u plz help... ## It is the Clonazepam that is making her nod off. This is a highly used anti-anxiety drug and will make an elephant sleepy - even on a low dose. ## Neurontin is used to help prevent seizures, and to treat certain types of nerve pain. Its side effects may include nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, mood changes, and weight changes. Both it, and the Clonazepam could be causing her to nod off, depending on the dosages she is taking. Taking them together could even worsen the side effects experienced. How long has she been taking them, and how muc...

does neurontin show up on a drug test as coke

Does neurontin show up in a icare drug test for/as coke (crack)? My friend needs to know if her husband is lying. ## Absolutely not. Gabapentin (neurontin) does not show up as anything in a drug test. If it had the chance to show up as anything, a benzo maybe but definitely not coke or crack. It is not considered a schedule c drug and so it is not tested for on drug screenings and will not give a false positive for anything else. ## Are you 100% sure about this some says it does????? ## It can be tested for. I know. I just got done with a half way house. The state inmates' dip sticks, if dude was hot for it, would show up a positive. However, when sent out someone dirty on gabbies when not get a positive result. All the federal inmates' test get sent out. Those guy would take st...

Sudden Withdrawal from Neurontin

I have been taking 600 mg of Neurontin 4x a day for about 2 years and recentlty ran out of this medication due to excrutiating slow service from mandatory mail order RX company.... I was extremely agitated during this time (approx. 5 days), nervous, stressed out, etc. Has anyone else had these symptons as a result of sudden withdrawal from Neurontin? I can't understand why this happened, I felt so scared and lousy for that time. Is this a known reaction for this med? I haven't been able to find an answer. I take it for relief from carpel tunnel syndrom. Thanks ## Almost any med, or substance, even you morning coffee, will cause some withdrawal symptoms when you have been used to having it in your body for awhile, and suddenly stop taking it. Did it ease when you finally started ...

gabapentin withdrawals

I'm being taken off of neurontin/gabapentin after seven years. I'm now crying, anxious, and itching all over! I have tried antihistamines and cortisone creams but w/ no relief. ## yes this is normal I went through the same thing. I was on 3600 for eight years. I weaned off very slowly. I started weening off in 2008. I am now down to 400mg and go down about 100 a week. Its so awful ## These types of problems are normal from a sudden withdrawal of any medication that affects brain chemicals, which is exactly what Gabapentin does, since it was initially discovered as an anticonvulsant. Unfortunately, since you were on it for so long, it is probably going to take several weeks for these effects to wear off, though they should gradually improve and lessen in severity. As to the itchi...

white pill s g 1 78 - are these gabapentin / neurontin

These pills are white, oblong and are scored like gabapentin are. On one side they have a S G and on the other is a 1 78. ## Hello, Gabby! How are you? Yes, this tablet is manufactured by ScieGen Pharmaceuticals and they list it as containing 800mgs of Gabapentin. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, dry mouth, and weight gain. However, there are many oval, white tablets that are scored, so please don't assume that they all contain Gabapentin. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Are they addictive if you take them every day? ## What are they used for treating? ## Hi Kathy. Gabapentin, generic Neurontin, is used for treating seizure disorders and some forms of nerve pain. I have nerve pain due to damaged nerves ...

What Does Neurontin Show Up As On A Drug Screen

Does anyone know if Neurontin shows up as anything on a drug screen? ## No, Neurontin contains the active ingredient Gabapentin, it is an anticonvulsant that has also been shown to be effective at treating certain types of nerve pain, so it is not a substance that is included on drug test panels. It has also not been known to cause false positives for anything else. Learn more Neurontin details here. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Neurontin only shows up as neurontin or gabapenton and is rarely tested for.

best generic brand of neurontin (gabapentin)

My pharmacy has recently stopped carrying Actavis generic Neurontin 100 mg. They also said they "could not order Actavis for me". So, I ended up purchasing the Brand Neurontin. My insurance picked up some but it was still $$$. Now that I've tried the brand it seems to work better at neuropathic pain control. Just wondering in May 2015 if anyone in the USA has found a generic Neurontin that they really like or works for them? I live in a small area with very few pharmacy options other than 2 big box chains. The monopoly works to their advantage as they rarely ever will 'order' any generic a person asks for. You tend to have to take whatever they are pushing that month. Picking up a script is like playing "musical chairs", every month or two a pill is a differe...

Gabapentin P636 vs G31

I've been taking Gabapentin 600mg tablets since 2009. My tabs have on them two different types of #s. P636 - This tablet is blue. The other is white with G31 600mg. Why the difference? Also would like to know how long will they last before they expire? Thank you. ## 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 and stomach issues and do not work nearly like the activas teva r636. took me forever to find them cause they are so low on stock on this generic. after a day worth of calls and...

South Georgia Pain Management Still Open For Buisness

Need a pain dr. in south Georgia ASAP. Needing a doctor that can prescribe sufficient amounts of pain medication so that I can function. I have a lot of back problems compounded by fibromyalgia and so on. ## It looks like law enforcement has been cracking down on the pill mills over there, so they may not be as generous as they might have been in the past: ajc.com/news/massive-pill-mill-raid-1227391.html n regards to finding a local pain doctor, I have listed below a couple websites specific to locating pain management doctors in a given area. All you have to do is input your city or zip code for narrowed results: {link removed because site no longer exists} Many of the results you find (in one or both of the links above) also list a phone number for that specific doctor; I'd consid...

can neurontin cause a false positive on drug test

I came up positive today for methamphetamine on a urine test. I've never touched that drug a day in my life. Does too much of it in your system cause that? I also take tegrotol, remeron, and catapress. They sent it out but I'm going crazy because I don't know what's going on....someone please help! ## I recently had a urinalysis sent to a lab. I just began taking Gabapentin maybe 2 to 3 weeks before this. I came up positive for cocaine and I never ever have done cocaine! My opinion is yes it does throw false positives. I spoke to someone who was in jail and people were coming up positive for benzos and cocaine while taking the Gabapentin. They actually quit giving it in this particular jail for this reason. ## I take Gabapentin but not cocaine, yet the drug test shows up...
