Please use extreme cautoon when using this drug. My husband is a chronic pain sufferer. His pain doc presribed it for him. Its very expensive. It also caused suicidal thoughts and tendencies. My husband cried and cried for no reason at all. He wuit taking it immediately. However he was only taking it for a week. It was a gorrible experience!!

Hello, Gingerbread89! How is your husband doing?

Gralise contains the active ingredient Gabapentin and it can cause mood swings, as a side effect, in some people that take it, along with headache, dry mouth and weight changes.

Thank you for posting this warning for others.

It us not the same or interchangeable with gabapitine. I was overdosed on it by my dr almost 2 years ago. It was horrible. Stomach burned, could not even keep water in me, my head felt like it was in neutral, and I didn't sleep for 3 days. I lost 10 lbs in 8 days. These meds are not interchangeable. You must ween if one then ween onto the other. I am still dealing with issues from Gralise. Doctors just don't know what to do. I have been to mayo, had my gallbladder removed, had SOD with sprinterottmy, and still it better. If only the Er dr had listened to me. I wouldn't be in this horriable situation.

Yes some liver issues, pancreatitis, a lot of vomiting. Still tons of pain and no the ER Dr. treated me as if I was faking or seeking drugs, even though my blood pressure was 198/98. I asked him to please just get this stuff out of me. He gave me a shot of ativan in the butt, told me I was just having a panic attack and sent me and my mom home. He told me to remain on the medicine. I did NOT. A week later I lost vision driving was taken to the hospital. 3 days of them trying to figure out what was going on they decide to still not listen to me about the gralise overdose and take out my gallbladder. I was a healthy 34 yr old female that owned my own salon. Now I'm almost 40, no salon, still feel horrible all the time and am now on Fentanyl patches for my right side pain. Post gallbladder removal. That had no stones and could have been fixed with some iv fluids and antibiotics. Or detoxing my system in the first place. Also now have SIBO and candida overgrowth. Guess mine was more from a dr that had no place prescribing me medication he did not know about or the ER DR that wouldn't listen.
