White pill s g 1 77 gabapentin

These pills work great for sciatica pain. I am sitting here now with a swollen right foot. I fell the day after easter on pavement -fell hard "splat" (I'm 52) btw. I had back surgery L4-5. 3 yrs ago due to bad sciatica. First foot was completely numb for two weeks. NO feeling. MRI showed nothing. Doctor said I bruised it. Now I had an inj. and am peeing my pants and defecating myself at night. L4 nerve is at bladder and colon. But pills work for pain.

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...

Gabapentin Dependency

Hi, I've been on Gabapentin about two years, but recently the Dr. increased the dose to 300 mg three times a day...for anxiety. I have been only trying to take it every other day instead. On the off days, I feel crummy. But if i took it daily, then the eventual withdrawal would be horrendous from what I've read. Besides that, I'd build up a tolerance to it pretty quickly and wouldn't be as effective in a short amount of time. Does anyone else take it every other day instead of daily? ## Gabapentin has a short half life of 5 to 7 hours; that’s why it’s typically prescribed 3 times a day and sometimes 4 times a day. Skipping dosages and taking it every other day can cause interdosage withdrawals when you're late on your dosage or skip a day. Gabapentin is a...

Alcohol and Gabapentin

Does anyone drink beer or other alcohol while taking this? I start on it tonight, increasing every 5 days to 900 mg total a day. I'm curious as to how much alcohol can be tolerated and if there are any reasons to avoid it completely. I like my Budweiser. Thanks for any input. ## Alcohol should be avoided while using this medication, especially at such a high dosage, because it can aggravate the side effects, making them much more problematic. These can include: nausea, drowsiness, dizziness and peripheral edema. You can read more on it here: Do you have any other questions? ## what are the bad things with this drug and alcohol? ## I've taken 3600mg of Gabapentin each day for 21 months now! I drink alcohol with them & feel ok. I would just say that the Gabapentin alone will l...

gabapentin dry reaction

There is a long story and before I forget it all I want to share what is happening at this time. I took Gab. For 5 months and weened myself off over a 30 day period. What I was left with was 7-1/2 months of the worse hell on earth you can imagine, I was compelled to kill myself. I should never have survived to get to the other side of death, but I did and now the medical professional look at me as though I am crazy, Im not! Also, It has made me allergic to everything. I can't take any meds for the pain. I have even resorted to medical Marijo But am allergic to that also. I go through terrible mood swings mostly sadness, despair, lack of motivation, no libido, no plans for the future....as I might kill myself tomorrow so why Bother. People say you need to see a phy. Dr. ...to what av...

Gabapentin after Cipro poisoning

Does gabapentin help after you have suffered from the adverse effects of cipro or another fluoroquinolone? ## Hi Jerri, Gabapentin is marketed for use in treating neuropathy (nerve pain), seizures and pain caused by shingles. Did the effects of Cipro cause such symptoms? If so, you can talk to your doctor about prescribing Gabapentin. Can you describe what adverse effects you experienced?
