Gabapentin toothache

Will gabapentin work for a severe toothache? I have gabapentin and it says it's for nerve pain but it doesn't list tooth pain. I know I have an exposed nerve. The pain is excruciating. Please help. ## Take Ibuprofen 800 mg every 4 hours non stop for 24 hours.. it will eventually stop the pain from being as bad also gel caps are better ## I have been taking Gabapentin 300mg for a while and decided to stop because of the side effects. I was having difficulties with breathing and sleeping. My blood pressure has also been higher than normal. I guess that everyone is different and it affects everyone differently. My wife also takes 300mg, two tablets 3x daily and she's been having great results. Like I said, everything affects everyone differently and as long as you pay attention...

Combitic Global Gabapentin 400 mg

Hello: I filled my prescription for Gabapentin 400mg capsules. They arrived in the correct packaging and are half puprle, half white capsules. I went to the Indian manufacturer's website and this med isn't even listed. Does anyone have experience with this company or this med? I filled my rx from them because I got sick of handing over thousands of dollars to doctors who just want to see you jump thru hoops. Any advice please? Thanks! ## Have you taken any? I highly recommend, from a couple years experience, Cipla generic, capsule form of gaba. I have had cervical dystonia for over 20 years and used the quite expensive, paying out of pocket, Neurontin, for several years too. Then various generics from Canada. Teva made it, and it was great. Making then both my Rxs for CD Teva. N...

Fake Gabapentin From Combitic Global?

I recieved 100 mg capsules from Combitic Global. They are not helping my Arthritis at all. I've been taking Gabapentin for years and never experienced this before I lost my insurance. I read a number of messages from customers saying their meds weren't working. Has anyone else experienced this from this company? I won't be ordering from them again-that's for sure! ## My investigation suggests that Combitic Global appears to be a well known drug manufacturer within the region of India. However I think it goes without sayin' that the quality assurance in India versus that of the US FDA regulatory standards may vary significantly. This is one of the biggest problems patients face when opting to not go through a licensed pharmacy that requires a prescription (whereas eve...

Gabapentin Drug Side Effects and Information

## Has anyone had any problems with taking this drug? I was given the drug for restless legs. ## I take 300mg. and have memory loss, tiredness so bad I'm not sure I want to continue taking it.The doc. wants me to try another drug to give me some umph. Not to sure about that. ## Things to consider - how long have you taken the medication, what exactly do you take it for, what other medications do you take (prescriptiion & OTC). A drug's side effects may diminish or vanish completely over time. A person's age may enter into the overall picture and,as always, a second opinion never hurt. ## Since taking it I have been getting a lot of colds/bronchitis duet to low energy and high white cell count. ## I have been taking it for 2 months and the effects are not getting any bett...

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system

I was taking 300 mg neurontin. 1 in am, 1 at noon and 2 at bedtime. I was prescribed the med in May of 2013. Increased later when not helping with foot numbness. It has been almost 2 weeks since i tapered myself off of the drug and i still feel nausea in the am which affects my eating. Please advise how long it will take this med to be out of my system? Thank you. ## Hi Cindy, Sorry to hear about the nausea you've been experiencing lately. From what I've been researching, in most cases it usually ends up being around 2 to 5 days for this type of medication to clear your system. However because you've been taking it for about a year, I'd imagine your body could still probably use some time to get accustomed to not having it on a regular basis. One study I found mentioned ...

I have a compound cream and am trying to figure out what is in it exactly before using it... My bottle reads: Gaba 3 / ketop 2 / lido 2.5 / Bupiv 2.5 ## Hi there.. Did you ever figure out what was in your cream? Got my cream today & has exactly same contents.. But can't figure out what they are.. Thanks in advance.. ## Based on the abbreviations you provided, this is a specially ordered cream used for topical pain relief, so ingredients can vary from area to area, but in this case, it contains Gabapentin, Ketoprofen, Lidocaine, and Bupivacaine. There are some details from Medline Plus and DailyMed about the various ingredients. In this case, side effects are typically only relevant to its topical application and are listed as possibly including skin irritation, redness, burning,...

Memory loss from Gabapentin?

I have a really bad memory these past 5yrs. I've been taking gabapentin the past 7yrs, I also take oxycodone, oxymorphone, mobic and stopped taking valium and a muscle relaxer about a year ago. I don't consume cannabis anymore. It's been about 15 yrs since I have. But when I did smoke back in the day I smoked a lot for a good 10yrs. I've noticed lately that I cant remember anything. When someone introduces themselves I just totally forget 2 mins later. I have tried the trick where you say the person's name over 5x's or use it in a sentence to help remember. But to no avail. Even at work, I'm told 3 things to do, I only remember 2 of them, or when it's time to do a task at work I just totally forget. It's affecting my job and making me look very stupid...

Side effect from Gabapentin

I have been taking Gabapentin since Feb 2015. I was taking 2 (300 mg) only at bedtime. I have been having mouth soreness and a taste I can not explain, even ice water makes me want to gag. Has anyone had any side effect from taking this, and having a sore mouth, with a nasty taste? ## I forgot to add on my previous post, that my Gabapentin was increased to 3 (300 mg) at bedtime April 16th, my mouth soreness got worse, and I have tried the Nystatin swish and swallow twice with no results. Water burns my mouth, this medication is the only new one I have started recently ## Hello, Deb! How are you doing? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Yes, according to the detailed side effects provided by the FDA, Gabapentin has been known to cause this, though it's not ...

side effects of gabapentin

Is it ok to drink wine while taking this medication? ## No. Alcohol will only add to the rapid heart beat associated with this drug, and shortness of breath and general feelings of discomfort will follow. Gabapentin is useful in small doses for peripheral neuropathies and certain epilepsies, but side effects abound ~ many of which are life threatening. ## I'm not sure what Jim means by many of them being life threatening. Jim can you please post back with more precise details? As to the problems with alcohol, it's really that it can cause an aggravation of all of the side effects, so you may feel more nausea, dizziness, drowsiness and etc. than you would otherwise. Learn more Gabapentin details here. ## It's not a good idea to mix alcohol with any medication. With gabapentin...
