Gabapentin Overview

Gabapentin, sold under the brand name Neurontin among others, is a medication used to treat epilepsy, neuropathic pain, hot flashes, and restless legs syndrome.[4][5] In epilepsy, it may be used for those with partial seizures.[4] It is recommended as one of a number of first line medications for the treatment of neuropathic pain in diabetic neuropathy, postherpetic neuralgia, and central neuropathic pain.[6] A 2017 review of its use for diabetic neuropathy and postherpetic neuralgia found th...

gabapentin and hormones
2 Replies RSS Share
I am taking gabapentin 100mg at night for CRPS2. After two weeks I had awful side effects. So, I after discussing w my doctor; I am taking gabapentin during my menstrual cycle as this makes my disability worse. But right after my cycle I got pms bad. Pain and vomiting. Does gabapentin effect hormones? ## Most medications can affect your hormones, according to FDA reports, so your menstrual cycle might change, and you may bleed more, or less than normal. The length of your cycle may also change. Are you on any other medications? Antidepressants are one of the worse for causing such issues, according to NIH studies. ## No. No I am not taking any other medications. And since it is suppose to be out of my system by morning, I don't understand why it effects me so badly.

Cold turkey with Gabapentin
4 Replies RSS Share
How long do the withdrawals last coming off Gabapentin? I've been taking 3600 mgs. per day for about two years. I have cold sweats and itching. I'm changing over to Lyrica, this is my second day. Is it going to be a problem quitting Gabapentin? I want to quiet cold turkey. I just need to know will it be a problem and how long it takes. Thanks ## Talk to your doctor. He (or she) will probably titrate your dose down fairly quickly. What do you take gabapentin for? I take 2700 mg a day for nerve pain. I have cervical spinal stenosis, but have no side effects. Lyrica is a controlled substance and is rather expensive. It's also addictive. Just do what your doctor says and you'll be Ok. ## Took me 4 weeks to withdraw from gabapentin. Hot, cold, dizziness, no appetite, headache...

Epleptin side effects
4 Replies RSS Share
I take 300mg of Epleptin per day - have a condition called motor and sensory neuropathy. Still experience a lot of pain in my feet and legs. I suffer from severe memory lapses? Can this be attributed to me taking this medication? ## Hello, Koos! How are you? Yes, this medication can cause memory issues in some people that take it. However, if it isn't helping your pain, you should make sure to let your doctor know, you may need a dosage adjustment or to try a different medication. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## Thank you for your response Verwon. Made a mistake in my original message. Actually taking Epleptin 300mg twice a day. Still have pain but a lot more severe without the medication. Neurologist suggested ordinary pain tablets over and above the Epleptin. Kind re...

Gabapentin breast tenderness
4 Replies RSS Share
I've been taking this drug for three weeks at 100 mg once a day, nightly. My breasts are so tender and they look like they are twice their normal size. Could it be the gabapentin? How long will it take to get out of my system? ## It has been known to cause breast enlargement, according to FDA reports, along with nausea, dizziness, mood swings and weight gain. I think it only stands to reason that such enlargement would also cause them to become sore. However, I am not a doctor and it's always best to have things checked out to be sure. Are you on any other medications? ## I am also experiencing breast pain with this medication and lots of dizziness..But it does work well for the pain caused by Fibromyalgia !! Damned if you do damned if you don't !! ## Hi my name is Mary Jane...

## 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...

I am trying to find out if gabapentin is ok to be in the system (body) of a truck driver. Legal presciption from a doctor. ## Can a truck driver pass a DOT physical if he takes gabapentin? ## Hello, Jeanie! How are you? I'm sorry, but from what I've found the answer is no. There is an automatic disqualification for anyone taking any type of antiseizure medication. This is due to the fact that the person either has epilepsy, or if they are taking it for nerve pain or mood disorders, the medication could put them at risk of a seizure, if they miss a dose or are late taking it. Having a seizure while driving could be very dangerous. The FDA lists the typical side effects to this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood swings and weight changes. Is there a...

how long does it take gabapentin to get out of your system
122 Replies RSS Share
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 ...

Gabapentin 2400mg per day
3 Replies RSS Share
I have been taking Gabapentin 600 mg, 4x per day for a total dosage of 2400 mg per day to help keep the nerve endings on my bladder calm for the past two years. I have IC [interstitial cystitis]. I'm noticing now that I'm having great difficulty with my memory and just simply recalling words to use in conversation. I'm also having right, low back pain extending into the hip, thigh and lower leg with leg pain when sleeping. This pain is making it difficult for me to walk or sit upright. I stay extremely fatigued. I'm 42 and my uro took me out of work in Oct of 2011 and I don't see myself returning to work. I just wonder if the Gabapentin is helping or worsening my condition [since IC can lead to the above complaints] and if anyone else is having any similar problems. ...
