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... ...

need to discuss with someone about the proper dosage of this med. ## There is really no set dosage for this, though you do need to start at a low dosage and gradually add more until you find the amount that works effectively for you. Most doctors will start with 100mgs taken 2 to 3 times a day, then go up to 300 and continue adding until they find what works for each patient. It would take a tremendous amount to OD on this, which is why so many doctors like to use it, they can take the dosage very high, without danger and it has very few side effects. Your best bet then, is to take your doctors advice on what you should be taking and how often. ## I just started gabapentin. My doctor told me to take 300 mg before bedtime for the first week and then move up to one every 12 hours and the ... ...

Is this medication ever administered in intravenous dosage forms? If so, how much gabapentin do you use? And is it ok to just break capsules and mix with water ## From what I've read, Gabapentin appears to be available in the following dosage forms: a capsule, a tablet, an extended-release (long-acting) tablet, and an oral solution (liquid) to take by mouth. IV methods are usually pertaining to those who recreationally abuse the medication. So I wouldn't necessarily recommend doing anything other than what your doctor or health-care provider suggests, in that regard. The dosing instructions also state that you should swallow the extended-release tablets whole; and not cut, chew, or crush them. Ref: I hope this info helps! ...

I was just prescribed some Gabapentin 600m after being on the 300m for about 2 months. the later did nothing for the pain in my foot which the doctor says is nerve damage from being frost bitten a long time ago. I really do not think that they (doctors ) really know what is wrong with my foot. I have not been ministerd any type of testing. I believe that my doctors gave me this to pacify me. I have been reading on this website that this drug takes a long time to take effect something like 8 months to a year, and that it is not habit forming. I was prescribed 180 pills with 5 refills which makes me wonder why so many pills for so long. so far the 600m are doing nothing for the pain in my foot, Does anyone know of this med helping them in any way. I really need some help for my foot short... ...
