My doctor told me if you're on suboxene or subutex it's not a good idea to mix it with gabapentin. Why is this because I was taking gabapentin for 15 years

Hello, Tessa! How are you?

It is due to the depression of the central nervous system that can occur, when they are taken together, according to the FDA, it could result in respiratory distress, coma, respiratory failure, heart failure and possibly death.

It is just best to avoid the combination, if other choices are available.

Is there anything else I can help with?

Hi Tessa some doctors are ok with it while some don't like doing it.my doctor said I could take gabapentine instead of my Lyrica with my suboxone if I wanted but I told him I prefer the Lyrica.

I've seen post that some say it's ok and some say ita dangerous.. which is it?? I don't to lose my gabapentin, it helps tremendously. But I also need help with my addiction. I'm torn.

Jodie. My pharmacist who has made my life hell has found another way to mess with me. She wouldn't fill my nerotin even though I have been on them for years and no prob since she decided to make my Life and wallet pay the price. Both sub Dr and reg Dr know about each other and what I am on. I have filled out a complaint against her.

Re: Christina (# 4)

It is ok, but Drs now are realizing gabapentin & lyrica work on the gabba receptors like benzodiazepines and can be dangerous.

All doctors lie to cover their ass. I've been on xanax 2mg, 12mg subs, gabapentin and buspirone 10mg, somas, tramadol, hyrdros but obviously switch to subs but im getting subs for pain management through my pain management doctor after getting t-boned on thruway at 60 miles per hour and it was a hit and run. Doctors don't give a s*** about you, it's all about the kickbacks from vendors. I never met a doctor that would give me anything for anxiety and i ended up dropping out of school, but i make 70k a year with no ged, but my point is that all the medicaid scum that get these scripts and sell then which f***s over working class people and now doctors are scared to prescribe any controlled substance unless u have proof that u really need it. I told my dr to take me off subs cause they're too expensive and insurance companies see subs as a detox drug.
