I take norco and trazodone at bedtime for back pain & insomnia. Now my doctor prescribed gabapentin for the nerve pain in my feet. Can I take them all at the same?

Generally, it is advised that Gabapentin and Norco not be taken together, according to the NIH, because Gabapentin can increase the toxicity of the Hydrocodone in Norco.

Otherwise, for you safety, it is said that your doctor should reduce your dose of Hydrocodone by 20 to 30%.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Gabapentin as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings, and weight changes.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I have been on norco 10-325 2-3x/day for about 3 yrs and gabapentin 800 4x/day (gradual dose increase over past 2 yrs). Last year, my insomnia got way out of control and my zolpidem de was no longer working at all. My PCP switched me to trazodone. I attempted to take it twice, and both times my blood pressure plummeted and I dropped like a sack of potatoes (passed smooth out). Thankfully, I didn't hurt myself or hit anything when I fainted but it was scary. When I came to, i couldn't get up off the floor bc i was so weak and extremely nauseous. My gf brought me a cold rag, some gatorade, and put a fan in front of me till I felt well enough to get up and into bed. After the 2nd attempt and same result, I had no desire to continue anymore. It was awful. I went through a slew of insomnia meds before I found something that worked with everything else I have to take. Good luck finding a combo that works best for you and your health.

I take 900mg of gabapentin 3x a day, 10mg of midodrine 3x day, 5mg eliquis 2x day, 500mg chlorzoxazone 2x day, 300mg of trazodone, 25mg hydroxyzine, 40mg nexium, 100mg lamictal at bedtime. Imitrex injection for migraine, and 25mg. Topiramate 1x day. Can any of this cause a false result for amphetamines or benzodiazepenes?
