Gabapentin and aspirin

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin and aspirin


i used to be prescribed this medication (gabapentin) for GHB withdrawals and as a mood stabilizer and I did abuse it. most of the time at dosages of 8 to 12 800mg tablets at a time and I just wanted to caution anyone who might take alot of it that it did make me have seizures from time to time at dosages as low as 8 400mg capsules. just a cautionary note.
My surgeon wants me to start taking the above in an attempt to check post-op sciatic nerve pain..Really started acting up abnormally last week and is getting progressively worse by the day...I mean painful,painful...Headed for another MRI as well to do a look/see of the area operated on. Surgery (2-1/2 weeks ago) was a success in my mind to a certain degree, but it appears that there must be something additional going on affecting the nerve..
R, levoxyl, prevacid, and mild dose aspirin. He travels for work out of state and we are afraid of him going into a diabetic episode with no one around to give assistance if he goes to low to handle himself? Is there any knowledge of problems with this combination of drugs?
If your boyfriend is taking aspirin to help prevent another attack, he should never take ibuprofen as it cancels out the anti-clotting effect on the platelets and he should never stop aspirin suddenly, either, except on the advice of a physician. Neurontin would seem safer to me. It also doesn't cause the stomach problems ibuprofen can.
I'm now down to 1800mg per day gabapentin, and 75mg amitriptyline. Pain still ebbs and flows on a daily basis; with a definite increase in discomfort and disturbing sensations in my left hand since coming down on the gabpentin. Prior to all of this I was considering giving Lyrica a try, in the hopes it might do a better job than the gabapentin, as it does for many here. I see my GP tomorrow to discuss this, and will let you know what I decide.
Greetings all, Just wanted to get a feel for what everyone uses for those nagging daily aches and pains in the legs and hips. Before my diagnosis I always stuck with Advil for everything pain related because of how well it works. I know that long term or daily use of ibuprofin can wreak havoc on your stomach, but aspirin or tylenol never really seem to work as well. Any "miracle" drugs out there I'm not aware of? Thanks all!
We have attended several scans over past few years he is on loads of medication- Aspirin Solpodol Effexor Gabapentin Lipitor Lamotrigine Tamsulosin Vesicare All for different things like his mood, sex drive, pain, he sees a urology doctor also I am concerned that if this was a stroke or TIA and this was post stroke symptoms - wouldn't it remain the same??? Yet this is getting worse all the time and each of these "set backs" gets worse and longer.
I have a primary immune deficiency and a port for venous access and am on plavix and aspirin. I have been advised not to try herbals due to my CVID, aenemia and general rotten condition. My joint and muscle pain is crippling, hot flashes, depression and insomnia severe. I think I am having a severe reaction to the progestin I am taking, can't sleep despite Ambien and can no longer manage to go to yoga. The pain is crippling and not even relieved by acucpuncture or narcotic pain relievers.

Last one felt past jaw joint and in teeth. Usually more mastoid and not TMJ like. Last one started this summer and continued even post Toradol. Finally somewhat better after phenergan and Dilaudid IV. About six months before last big lesion, eye doctor noted that eyes were funny in that the discs were not pale or cupped, but the retinal vessels were swollen such as is seen in nerve deterioration.
I started taking yoga classes and do a lot of stretching and that helps for a while then the band of pain comes back. I've only taken aspirin and use a heating pad at night and some hot and icy cream, but again, it is only a temporary fix. I'm now looking on the internet to see if I can find any answers...good luck with your research.
Norco is simply hydrocodone and acetaminophen. There is hydrocodone and aspirin. There is hydrocodone and ibuprofen. The latter two can irritate your stomach over the long term but this complication can be addressed without a liver transplant. Additionally if you damage your liver slightly versus severly damaging it, you could potentially have issues with pain control as you won't have a choice but to stop taking the Norco.
I used it for TN and it was VERY effective. Gabapentin (Neurontin) was one of the next meds tried and found to be useful. It has a wide range of dosing and is often very effective. However, some people feel too weird on it and can't tolerate it. Sometimes the doctor tries to start at too high a dose, dooming the trial to failure.
The pain meds are not harmful to the liver as long as they don't contain aspirin and acetaminefen and are taken under a Docs care, along with regular blood tests you'll get any way for the treatment. Most pain meds ,codein, hydrocodone, etc.,metabolize to morphine in the liver , so morphine has the least pressure on the liver aslong as you are in good enough shape to rid the liver of the drug and not let it build up. That is rare though and only seen in end stage liver disease.
I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
She got an infection and a blood clot from the IV when she got the MRI, and was put on an antibiotic and aspirin. It (the infection and clot) cleared-up after a couple of weeks, but at about the exact same (late Dec) she felt nauseous, had neck pain, and a radiating headache. This went on for about 4 days, and then began to wane.
If you did, that can cause cramps in your lower extremities. -the cardo doc had me take this aspirin and the perscription H) It looks like you've tried a number of pain medications, neurological drugs, a migraine abortive medication (Maxalt), antibiotics (do you get frequent infections?) and you took something for a bowel clean out- maybe had a colonoscopy?
bloodwork was all normal (except for a higher LDL cholesterol at 115 which she said i should take an aspirin for and also work with Dr. Cox to get on a medication), the neuropsych appointment was also normal and she said that i operated at a "high cognitive level" and the MRI was clear. she suggested at this point we just watch it. she also said that based on the information she couldn't rule out MS because those white matter spots are there.
In short no common decision about what can be classified as MS and what that doesn't, except the tranquilizers, even them are sort of.' neurontin (gabapentin) is considered one of the safest, true but is weak and some said it works well in the beginning then cause anxiety. Of course it may for some and not for others. So no use in saying this med is good or bad like these questions that pop up in the forum asking whether such and such is good or not. It depends on the individual.

concern me and this last one really scared me, thinking it might be a heart attack. I chewed aspirin and tried to relax and eventually the aching pain went away. I am a 58 year old woman with no history of heart disease except for familial history of my dad dying at 59 of heart disease. I am only 5 pounds overweight and do not have high blood pressure or diabetes or any major illness. Twice I have gone to the ER, thinking I'm having a heart attack. The results are negative.

About six months ago I finally got over denial (hard thing to achieve) and started medical treatment, Metformin and Lantus, I experienced relief in many of my symptoms but I´ve developed neuropathic pain, hell of a curse it affects my life in all the ways. I can hardly think or work. I am taking carbamazepin, gabapentin and vitamin B to fight this but the pain is incredible mostly from my abdomen down.
I have been cured and off all meds for two years but still suffering and do not know where to turn. I have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue, Systemic Yeast Infection, crazy weight gain (50 lbs), gurd, muscle weakness and the list goes on and on! At my last liver docs appt they "apologized for destroying my life" and said that maybe I would recover in 6 or 7 years. They gave no suggestions for a speedier recovery saying my system was in chaos.
Moving my neck even slightly meant extreme crushing spanning first from the left across to the right side. Another infusion, another MRI; this one negative; and then the application of a Gabapentin drug called Gralise (which is the worst thing in the world, imho) and Bacloven, a muscle relaxer. Nothing helped. Then, Around mid to late August; a spinal tap/lumbar puncture was scheduled.
My name is Crystal, and since October 31st around 3 am, I have been in a constant struggle with problems ranging from clenching chest pains, heart palps, increased heartrate, head jitters/electrical vibrations/sensations through head and spine (like a painful electrical current that radiates up and down my spine), I have had my limbs go tingly, and even one time my right leg went numb and it kind of cocked up a little and went limp, so I was unable to move it...
I started taking 300mg of R-Alpha Lipoic Acid 3 hrs before bedtime and 600mg of Gabapentin 3 hrs later at bedtime. I can sleep all night now.Is taking the R-Alpha and Gabapentin both dangerous. I can get no response from my Neurologist..
I have a wonderful husband who has no idea that I'm struggling with this (he worries and he has enough on his plate!) and two WONDERFUL boys 16 and 13. I'm afraid that I can't stop totally taking these meds because I have terrible pain that I can't tolerate without them. Am I in the wrong place here or does anyone have any advice as to how I can get back down to a reasonable dosage with my meds. PLEASE.........anyone!! Any advice would be so very much appreciated.
I have had 4 surgerys on my right knee and 1 on my back i have been taking pain medications like vicodine and am curently taking norco for my pain in the right knee i have been taking about 7 to 8 norco, daily and also gabapentin 3 times a day , and zanaflax 2 a day my question is could my chest pains be being caused by all these medications or is my chest pains being related to a heart problem i am 41 years of age right now please help thank you =]
Since then, I've been losing weight (20lbs since mid-Nov), I'm very tired, and weak, and now have edema in my legs, hands and feet. I've had diarrhea for a week now, and am on a waiting list (August is the soonest they can get me in) to see a hematologist for a Bone Marrow Biopsy. That's too long to wait, in my opinion. I am having to take 40mg Lasix daily for the water retention, and it doesn't help, my urine output is very poor.
