Gabapentin cream

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin cream

neurontin

I used a compounding cream a few years back for my rsd in my hand. It didn' do much really. I'be been giben a new compunding cream with my new pain doc. It has ketamine, baclofan, gabapentin, cyclobenzoprine and lidocaine. The nurse said this is systemic. I'm wonderin if anyone knows anything about building a depwndency or tolerance with a topical cream.
i was prescribed Gabapentin for numbness in my arms. I was experiencing numbess in my arms during sleep, i play video games and i spend most of my time on a computer so i thought it would be something like carpel tunnel or some other repetitive strain disorder. now i got prescribed this but wasnt even told what i had, im kind of skeptical about whether to keep taking this and for how long.
My local doctor was wary of all the side effects and wanted to try a neurontin cream compounded with doxipen and lidocaine. This combo seems to help some days but other days it makes the itch so much worse. Has anyone else tried these compounded creams? What strength and what were the medications involved?
I take gabapentin once a day, at night before bed. My doctor said I can take up to 500mg, I usually take 400 and sometimes only 300 mg. I was very resistant to taking medicine that will make me drowsy, so I compromised and only take enough to calm the twitches/ uncomfortable feelings enough for me to sleep. I thought I was taking little enough where I can still hear the kids if they wake up at night, and I do wake up if they need me.
He did a few exam moves on my foot and thinks that my nerves are misfiring in that foot and causing the problem. He prescribed a compounded cream for me to use to see if it helps with the toe and gives it a chance to heal on its own. The cream contains ingredients I am familiar with mainly as oral meds - ketoprophen, gabapentin, amitriptyline and bupivacaine. I al to use if for 8 weeks and then see him again.
Try fluocinonide .05% It's a prescription topical cream . I have the same problem with severe itching arms and tried this cream starting yesterday. Last night was the first night my arm went all night w/out itching. Your condition is most likely called: 'brachioradial pruritus' There are a couple sites you should look at. One is 'the doctors doctor' ....go to the search site page and look up 'brachioradial pruritus'. Also, go to 'DermNet NZ' and look up 'brachioradial pruritus'.
The Zonisamide is the same color, but now bigger. The Gabapentin was gray capsules, but now is cream and tan. The pharmacist assured me it is the same drugs, just the capsules look different. Different maker? Well, anyway, since the change I am not getting the relief that I was. The Gabapentin got the burning pain. The Zonisamide took care of everything else - sharp shooting and bug crawling sensations. I was free and clear.

Hi, It varies from person to person. Common medications for neuropathy include Gabapentin(as others mentioned--but know that the correct dose for you may be quite different than for someone else), Elavil(Amitryptiline) and Lyrica. There are others also used but these are the most common currently. Take care.
I saw my pain management doctor last week and explained the situation, about gastric bypass people not being able to swallow pills and he gave me a topical cream. I tried the cream, and there is NO comparison, between the relief I get with my pills vs. this cream! I am so exasperated, and I need help! What are some suggestions that I can do or where I should look for help... (ideas I can take back to my P.M. Doctor!) Thanks!!

trolamine salicylate, active ingredient in arthritis cream. But it only works for a couple hours. The itching continues day and night, now that it's Nov. it's starting to recede, but goes from mid-sept. to mid-dec.

Hello, The post herpetic neuralgia produces very severe and lancinating pain and for this gabapentin, tri-cyclic antidepressants or local capsaicin cream is used. Local anaesthetic agents also help in the relief of pain. Please do consult a physician for the treatment as it is not possible to diagnose and treat online. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided.
I went to bed and got up again and wanted some ice cream. I had some Breyer's Cookies and Cream Ice Cream along with chips. I like the sweet and salty together. Well about 8 hours later I paid for this with the start of a migraine. I took the migraine medication and nipped it in the bud before it was real bad. The relpax gives good results and quickly. I noticed the pain around 7 a.m. and took the medication at 8:45 a.m.. The pain had completely subsided by just after 9:00 a.

I have been taking 800 mg of Gabapentin 3 times a day as per my prescription. I have been taking 4 or more a day cause it won't stop bothering me. I seriously want to rip my you know what off. I have looked online for similar stories, remedies, etc but to no avail. Every time I go to the supermarket I buy another over the counter hydrocortisone/anti itch cream/powder etc. Nothing seems to work...
I had small lesions on my glans (penis) which I thought was balanitis - I have been treating this with increased washing/drying and occassional application of hydrocortisone cream. Sometimes this worked and the glans would return to normal within a couple of days, but then the lesions would return. I'm still battling with this. However, I also have a large single ulcer on my penis which looks like it could be syphilis.
My left arm itches and feels like something is biting me, yet there is nothing on it. Of course, I've tried calamine lotion, but it itches more and also with Benedryl cream, it itches even more, also. The sun even makes it itch. Have had this problem for 6 years now-what could be causing it and how can I get rid of this problem? I have SCARS on that arm from all the times this happens.
I also have s reacurring rash on my neck and it does go away wen I use cotizone or cream of that nature. As soon as I stop using it it comes right back. My eyes also itch and sometimes jump or twitch. I have tried stop using washing products certain foods etc that may cause allergies but it still continues. I also get dark rings around my eyes and my knuckles hsve little swollen like bumps on them. I don't know what is going on.
I have been getting a prickling itching in my arms, the more I scratch the worse it gets like needles prickling and itching, it is worse in the evening. I have tried anthistamene cream and tablets, calamine lotion also I take a anti inflammatory tablet. It is sometimes quite unbearable nothing really works. There is no visible signs of a rash just a bit red from the scratching.
Has anyone found any lotion or cream to stop the itching from this terrible aggravating disease . I could be the poster child for the symptoms you all talk about with disc compression and forearms that itch so bad that I could use a wire brush to scratch them. . Surely with all the very smart Drs out there someone has come up with a solution . Thanks. 52 year old male in good health from Louisiana..

Lou56 Age 80 Starting about October 2006 my butt where I sit became very uncomfortable to sit for more than a few minutes. It is a hot burning pain where ever the skin in compressed. When I lift up the pain goes away, it comes back when I sit back down.
Sorry your first post got lost ??? To answer your question ... yes it is fairly common to experience this following breast surgery and those nerves do NOT care to be cut or otherwise interferred with. To say how long this will last is almost impossible ... it varies from person to person or surgery to surgery. It may not all go away either but you do become accustomed to it after awhile.
I use a lot of gabapentin (2700 mg), as well as baclofen and zanaflex - but it doesn't completely remove the pain. It does help me to manage though. A good stretching routine helps if the pain is due to spasticity.
Not sure of your palms have erythema or ezcema--please see a dermatologist as the latter might warrant some steroid cream. gabapentin is fine to take.
I get lots of pain and have elements of dystrophy in my foot, ankle and lower leg muscles. Have you tried either gabapentin or Lycria? I am on Gabapentin and it is an amazing drug it really helps calm the pain down. I also take Amitriptyline which works well. The gabapentin is best though its made a major difference to my pain levels. I have also had two nerve blocks with a drug called gaunethidine. The first one worked very well and I had about two months partial relief from the pain.
He tried, Neurontin, Lyrica, adarax, cortizone elavil and every cream, gel or spray you could imagine. He is at his ropes end. Never sleeping and miserable. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help him.
If it is brachioradial rpuritis then treatments include cooling lotions like those containing camphor or menthol, capsacain or local anesthetic creams, amitriptyline and gabapentin tablets and electrical cutaneous nerve field stimulation.
