I just received a prescription for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> 6% for neuropathy in my feet. What time of day is best to apply the gel to get maximum benefit?
Coughing clear <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span>-like mucous balls. 6. Tightness in neck w. breathing bit obstructed 7. Belching 8. Hypoglycaemia like sympt 9. Tinnitus 10. Itchy rash and wheezing at times Could Ciguatera do this? My tropical specialist thought Ciguatera would not fluctuate like this. Neuro wnts to do EMG/TT and poss oligcl bands. What would you recommend? Should I see a gastro/internal specialist? Do you think this could be CNS related? MS? Lyme or some other entity that still produces neurotoxins?
The Zonisamide is the same color, but now bigger. The <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> 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.
I started out with just heat and an ibuprofen <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> applied regularly. That did not really do much to be honest. Now I am taking nortriptylene at night, only been taking it for about 3-4 weeks so far and it can take a while to get into your system apparently. I can't say whether it is actually working yet. I also take gabapentin and and an antidepressant as I have other health issues as well as TMJ. And I have paracetamol, codeine and oramorph for the pain.
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.
Amitrityline-2%, Ketoprofen – 10%, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> – 3%, Lidocaine – 2% and Transdermal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> – 60 g. Needs a prescription to get. You'll need a special pharmacy who can mix it up. If you have trouble finding one, my pharmacy also mails them out. Also, putting an ice pad on your head can sometimes help a migraine. Let me know if this info helps you at all. Good luck.
sometimes it happens on my shoulders too. the pain from this is awful. i have found that many times baby teething <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> (oragel) helps sooth the itching. if that doesn't work, i use ice. what i've noticed is that when i went off the hormone replacement therapy med i've been on for 24 yrs., the itching went away. i started taking the HRT again just to see if that was really the answer. after 2 pills, the itching came back with a vengeance on my forearm. so for me it's hot flashes or itching.
He tried, Neurontin, Lyrica, adarax, cortizone elavil and every cream, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> or spray you could imagine. He is at his ropes end. Never sleeping and miserable. Does anyone have any suggestions that might help him.
I get to drop off one of the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> pills, so that pleases me. He gave me a prescription for some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> which is supposed to help with the post injection site reactions from the Copaxone. All in all I felt like it was a good day even tho it has poured. Well, I wanted to share this with all of you. Have a good week!!
I have been diagnosed with Idiopathic Peripheral Neuropathy in my bilateral lower extremities from mid shin down. I am on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> which helps with the scalded feeling that I have. Several years ago I had a Gastric Bypass. Approximate to that time I began feeling pain in the balls of my feet when I am on them. This varies from mildly uncomfortable to excruciating. I have tried gel inserts, as well as, orthotics with no avail.
Does anyone have any experience using <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> for opiate withdrawals? I am trying to slowly taper off the fentanyl patch and oxycodone. Thanks for any advice!
I have many dental issues, missing lower teeth and deterioration of the lower jaw bone, along with nerve issues of the lower branch of the trigeminal nerve, currently taking a low dose of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span>. ...brief background info. I recently changed dentists, have had a 3D CT of my jaw, and digital xrays of my teeth. He found my front 2 teeth in need of crowns, b/c they were mostly composites and decaying underneath and asked me if no one had ever told me that one of them needs a root canal.
Amitrityline-2%, Ketoprofen – 10%, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> 3%, Lidocaine2%, and Transdermal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> – 60 g. TID And I also use a prescription Lidocaine nasal ointment which again does not enter the blood stream. It's unpleasant, but effective which may be why my neurologist took 2 years to prescribe it for me. You need to insert the ointment very slowly so that only a small amount goes down your throat, but not enough to matter. He prescribed 2 ml in each nostril, no matter which side the headache is on.
and the doctor there prescribed me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> for nerve pain as well as Ativan for the anxiety issues. I have been taking the gabapentin as prescribed but have only had to take the Ativan a couple of times when the anxiety has been really bad. I have dealt with all the physical withdrawls pretty well but the anxiety is really bugging me when it comes on ( it seems to slowly be getting better).
but this has not been very succesful to date (but am waiting for another trial) other than that, they are talking about putting me on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span>. Another thought by the medical team at my hospital is to go back to the surgeons (and I have a referral) and talk about adhesions being the cause of my pain and internal scarring could be pulling on nerves on the inside. My mother has always been prone to adhesions with surgeries.
Also there's a prescription <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> called Voltaren. I tend to piece a lot of little things together to help my pain as nothing really helps all of it. I never abused my meds but was definitely over-medicated for a long time. I missed so much with my kids because of it. Keep looking at that baby for your inspiration!!
been on every drug u can imagine (<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span>, amitryptline, nortriptyline, topomax, lyricia, cymbalta and the list goes on and on and on Ive had nerve blocks etc..
I also have chronic pain. I take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> (generic neurontin) it helps a ton. I have heard it is difficult to get off of, but I'm ok staying on it. It makes me sleepy too. So I only take it at bedtime. And honestly I'm sleeping really well most nights. Good luck with your doctor today!
And they tug on the sensory nerves, which is the worst thing of all. I'm thinking of purchasing a home ultrasound unit (and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span>), but wondered if anyone had tried this for loosening up trigger points. It's a pretty big investment (about $300), so I want it to actually do something, though it is returnable for a full refund. Thank you to anyone who can give me any information.
I was having problems with pain while I was on sub and taking a higher dose didnt help the pain at all. So he prescribed me a compounded pharmaceutical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> called neuroderm(KGCL) ketamine,gabapentin,clonidine,lidocaine. Since its compounded there are many different combos of medication that they can use depending on what type of pain you have. The best thing about the gel is that they are all non-addictive, less drug on drug interaction and you can apply it directly to the source of your pain.
Need to correct one paragraph that I wrote above. Correction is in capital letters. "I still have "crashes" of my migraines when I do a little bit too much. Then I take Esgic which controls them the best. It has Butalbital plus caffeine--a barbituate. And since I can't take it more than one day a week, then I switch to Lorcet--an opiate which helps some. Also use ice packs.
My doctor recently prescribed a compound cream for my pain. It is a mix of lidocaine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> cyclobenzaprine and ketoprofen. It seems to work well on nerve pain if you apply it to the pain at the center. It is filled through medi--stat Rx. Unfortunately some insurance plans such as mine do not cover it. However, you can still get a small amount for around $35. If he keeps the pain at bay for more than a day, then the small amount can still last a while.
Another alternative pain method that I have come to use is a compounded pharmaceutical <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> called KGCL, ketaminegabepentinclonidinelidocaine, and it works wonders for me. I have avascualr necrosis and have blown out my knee a few times, and of course I ended up addicted to pain meds, I also was using other drugs constantly. I used methadone to stop all other drugs, though I did slip occasionally, but I was doing it all without insurance so it came from or thru friends.
yes percs are a strong pain med.. i take them for chronic back problems. i take the 10/325..i have been taking them for 3 years now.
I have been given several differant meds but afraid to take any. Oxycodene, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span>, Amitriptyline, Hydroxycholroroquine. I do take a multi-vitamin for anemia. Yes the ANA came back positive Pattern: Nucleolar Titers >1:640 SED 13, SS-A 0.4 and SS-B >8.0H AI. Lip biopsy came back positive for Sjogrens.
so it has to hurt really bad for me to willingly go to the ER. Anyway, they were worried it was heart related and put a nitro <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> patch on me. it did help the pain and tightness. I guess it is logical it would help with spasms, as the heart is a muscle and a heart attack is a spasm. it not heart related as there wasn't anything new going on there. so they sent me home without helping the arm problem really. today my arm is tightening up again and I was wondering what you did to help this.
When I had my last eye exam I mentioned the double vision and blurring to my optimologist and she asked what meds I was on, after consulting her drug book she said that these were common side-effects to both the Ami and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span> that I take, she wrote to advice my GP but that's it. I haven't got a neuro, my GP has referred me so I live in hope that I'll get an appointment at some stage (this year would be great LOL) and then I'll take my list of odd symptoms and see what they make of it.
I do know insurance companies won't pay for Acthar <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> unless IVSM has been tried and failed. The reason is due to cost. It runs about $5,000.00 per shot. I had been on IVSM for nearly a year taking it every three or four weeks (three days each time with one gram each day). Finally my body could no longer handle it so I was approved for five shots. It was much different than IVSM. Side effects for me? None. I took it during a flare that didn't want to calm.
I currently can only wear slip on beach sandals that have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gel</span> padding. The bottom of my foot is also very sensitive and I cannot really bend my toes. Here are3 my test resluts. ELECTRODIAGNOSTIC FINDINGS: Low amplitude with normal latency in the left peroneal motor nerve conduction study. Borderline low amplitude with normal latency in the left tibial motor nerve conduction study. Low amplitude wit normal latency in the left sural sensory nerve conduction study.
When I had turn 10 years old I started to abuse hydrocodone and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>gabapentin</span>, as well as other types of pain meds. I took a break from it when I turned 21 due to my pregnancy, and id say three years later I started again, not as bad as before but I drink regularly. Just recently I have pain on my upper right side below my ribs. I know this pain is coming from my liver, I am extremely concerned. What are your comments on this, anything helps.
