Gabapentin side effects (sleepy, feeling 'drunk' & memory loss)

Hey everyone. I've been taking Gabapentin for about 2 months now at 300mg 3x a day. I was prescribed it after having a tumor removed from my neck which resulted in nerve damage. They help with the pain for sure as it is at least manageable now where it wasn't before. But holy the side effects! I feel like I could fall asleep anywhere, anytime of the day. I also feel off balance all the time, almost like I feel 'drunk' to an extent. I'm also finding I'm dealing with memory loss. I have a hard time remembering what I did 20 mins ago! I guess my big question is, has anyone else dealt with side effects like this? Did they ever diminish over time? I'm going to see my surgeon in a couple weeks and thinking I may have to look at a different route but wanting some in...

Amtas 10mg

Hi, I have been taking Amtas-10mg for my hypertension for about a year. Since the time I started taking this tablet, I have noticed that my fasting blood sugar has steadily increased from 105 mg/dl to 165 mg/dl. Until I started taking this tablet, I had never had raised fasting blood sugar. My GP says my raised blood sugar has nothing to do with taking Amtas. I would like to have a second opinion on this matter. Thanks in advance. ## Amtas contains the active ingredient Amlodipine, which is a calcium channel blocker that's commonly used to treat high blood pressure and certain cardiac conditions. And yes, it is known that Amlodipine can cause elevated blood sugar levels and it is usually warned against being used in people that are already diagnosed as Diabetic for that reason. I...

Memory loss from Gabapentin?

I have a really bad memory these past 5yrs. Ive 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 dont smoke marijuana 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. Its affecting my job and making me look very stupid. I usually am a s...

Someone please help me. I've been on my Xanax's for 20yrs and cant lose them. I just wanna know if I crush one of my Xanax's into someone's clean urine will it show up on the test? And how long do I have to let the Xanax sit in the urine or when do I put it into the pee? ## It would depend on the volume of Pee.

60 and Accutane

I am a 60 year old male who has had acne for 40 years. Eventually, after many years, my doctor sent me to a dermatologist. She prescribed 60mg a day and, after 6 weeks, I feel like a zombie! Aches, pains - I feel my age. Anyone else out there who takes this at my age? ## I would stop Accutane! You do understand that Accutane is a Chemo drug....If you delt with Acne for 40yrs then I would suggest you find others ways that are safer. There are teens and young people like me who now have joints and bones of that of a 60yr old due to this poison. What have you tried in the last 40yrs for your acne? ## I am a 52 year old women who has been on accutane for 1 month. I had severe acne and severe oily skin since I was 13 years old. I am thrilled so far with the results with accutane. I am having...

Efudex with Dovonex

Just letting everyone know that I just did the newest Efudex treatment protocol which requires mixing 50% Efudex with 50% Dovonex (vitamin D) and it was very fast and easy. Four days of application of the combo “lit up” my face and 7 days later my face and scalp were virtually back to normal. Minimal pain, like a sunburn, and no scabbing, pus, etc. I was really scared to do the longer treatment after reading blogs and looking at pictures, but the new treatment is a piece of cake. Plus, according to related articles, it actually works better. A real win-win! "SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ. – A four-day topical combination regimen of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and calcipotriene removed almost 90% of facial actinic keratoses – significantly more than with 5-FU monotherapy, in a r...

I am not pregnant. shall i use susten in alternative days ? ## Hello, Mimi! How are you? Why do you wish to use it?

Suboxone, Subutex and Hepatitis C

I have hep-c and finally found a Dr to give me Suboxone but I'm worried that when they find out I have hep-c they won't give it to me. I live in OKC, so does anyone know if I'll be able to receive the medication? Can you only get Subutex if you have Hepatitis C? ## Do not even mention your hep-c. It will complicate everything. Just take the suboxone and get on with your life. Also, you will have more energy taking suboxone. I know how hep-c zaps your energy. Enjoy your life. Good luck to you.

how long before testopel pellets start working?

Just had Testopel pellets inserted in my backside. Forgot to ask doctor how long until they take effect. He's out of town. ## Your T level goes up right away with ANY T-therapy medication, such as Testopel, Androgel or Testim. Have tried them all over the past several years, and it is my experience that Testopel is far and away the best option. Why have to remember to use a sticky gel every single day when you can get Testopel that lasts not less than four or five months in my case and up to six months for others. It's actually less expensive, too! ## That answer is correct, they will start to work immediately and usually last between 4 to 6 months. Testopel is a Testosterone replacement therapy. Some side effects may include: erectile problems, hirsutism, headache and anxiety. ...

penicilina pomada

We LOVE this product and want more!! Please tell me about its current availability (my husband recalls it packaged in tiny red and white round tins that come in in a 'sleeve'). ## I'm sorry, but this site does not manufacture nor sell any products of any type. this is an information only website.

Chronic Pain patients must get organized to lobby for their rights.

People with chronic, intractable pain are being discriminated against and it is imperative that we join forces to fight for our civil rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Please send information on existing associations and organizations that can help or how to establish one that can help pain patients fight for their rights with petitions, letters; emails to send to these state and federal politicians that are determined use prescription drugs, doctors and pharmacies to further their political careers. Drug abuse is not the same as opiate dependent because of chronic pain management and there are over 100 million people living with pain and many of us are unable to live without medication.

Amphetamines False Positive Drug Test

I have somehow tested positive for amphetamine but the only drug that I touch Is marijuana. How is this possible? It was a urine test done in a hospital. ## If u take allergy pills that sometimes shows up as a false positive for amphetamines if u haven't then I don't know how it happened that's all I know ## It should occur from just marijuana.

methadone and garcinia cambogia

I have been on methadone for 10 years for fibro. I take 60-100 mgs a day. I have recently begun taking garcinia cambogia, green coffee bean and raspberry ketones for weight loss. Though they have been working, (I've lost 20 lbs) I've noticed about 1-2 hrs after taking them I start to withdraw. It doesn't matter if it's been 2 hrs or 10 hrs since my last methadone dose, my body acts like it's been 14+hrs as the anxiety clamps on like a vice and the nose turns into a faucet. Does anyone know if there is a withdrawal interaction or if this is just coincidence and I got a bad batch of methadone? ## I have noticed the same thing. Two times now, after taking this supplement for 4-7 days, I have come into a debilitating withdrawal. I was searching online to see if others ha...
