Gabapentin powder

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin powder

neurontin

I frequently wake up at night due to very restless arms and legs as well as joint pain. So she recommended that I try a very low dose of Gabapentin (which I think is neurontin?). I read the info that came with it and I see that it is an anti-seizure drug but at a much lower dosage it is used to treat nerve pain. My first question: Has anyone tried it for the same reasons and what results have you had?
I have heard/read that Neurontin/Gabapentin has really helped ease the WD for a lot of people, and has also been prescribed to help restless leg syndrome. I was just wondering if anyone has any experience with this. Thank you and God Bless!

The gabapentin has been helping tremendously(yes I was prescribed it before but never took it). I'm still exhausted, no energy, and loose stools(can't take immodium, it makes me sick) and slight RLS. Well my whole body lol. Will it really get worse on day 3 and 4?? I was taking 7-8 and cut down to 4 in a week then took my last half 40 hours ago. Or is this the worst part?
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...
The main side effects of Neurontin® (gabapentin) are dizziness and sleepiness. It could be the cause of your feeling tired. You should inform the doctor who prescribed the Neurontin® (gabapentin) of your new symptoms. He/she may want to have you temporarily discontinue the medicine to see if your symptoms subside. Significant chest or respiratory symptoms are not reported as an adverse effect of this medicine.
rmarie is right about B6 as well! I guess it's out of my mind because my mom's oral chemo doesn't allow B6 for PN (you can, but it works slower with this particular type of chemo). No, tablets or powder is fine. with l-glutamine you can normally get more from powder (remember you are looking for "G" and not "MG") and tablets are usually lower dosage, but all are the same typically. I buy the one from GNC.
i had realized that when i went to school in the morning if i didnt take any pills i get withdrawls in school and we all know there no fun my question is when will the withdrawls stop. i have gabapentin 300mg it seems to work but idk if its an opiate to and that would mean that it was all pointless...
Hi I'm from the UK and I could have written your post! Since December 2011, I have been experiencing pain in both feet when I get up in the morning. I find it really difficult to walk to the bathroom and walk down the stairs, but then when I start walking the pain goes away. This can also happen when I sit for a long time and then get up. I have increased my medication, but it hasn't helped. I feel like a 90 year old !!! My MS nurse and GP just said it was nerve pain.
Last MRI showed no new lesions for the first time!! Tysabri for little over a year. GABAPENTIN changes my life. Lots of sciatic pain all the time and burning down outside left thigh and both feet at night. Started GABApentin a little over a week ago - one cap PM. Now taking one cap PM and one AM and the pain is much relieved - not only at night but during the daytime!!! I wish I'd done this a year ago! Must start assessing amounts of pain better and admitting it and treating it!

Relaxation methods are also helpful such as yoga, meditation and similar techniques. Soy supplements up to 100 mg in divided dosages daily, or a scoop of soy powder blended with fruit and a cup of soy milk is a great smoothy and works form many or try 1 to 2 tablespoons of flax seed on your cereal in the morning. You can also try non estrogen prescription medications such as gabapentin, an antiseizure med that seems very effective for hot flashes.
- Start to find a muscle relaxant, no difference which brand name, take it each evening for almost 2 weeks. - Gabapentin, starting dose 300 mg then increase it progressively until the total dose become effective for pain (1200 mg - 1600 mg) in divided doses, and also decrease it progressively during many days; this is the best treatment now for your pain. - Take one injection ACTH (Decadorabulin) every 3 weeks for 3-4 months to increase your body mass along with some hard activity.
effect from the powder in the capsules......... I seem to have more indigestion, despite the prilosec in the morning and zantac at night after starting the new dose.. I have not moved into the 2 day doses at the new rate because I have a ton of driving to do in the next 3 weeks and know it will affect vision/concentration til adjusting. Medicare will not give me 2 of the 300mg capsules, they insist "less pill is better".......
I'm scared as hell right now and my anxiety is through the roof. I am also prescribed Clonidine and Gabapentin which I have heard help with withdrawal. Will be attending N/A meetings once the worse is over. This will be a sh**** Christmas but it is probably the best gift I could give myself (and family), I have also taken the next week off so hopefully I am through the worse by the 30th. I will keep posting for sure.
There are a few over the counter supplements that may be able to help, like Glutamine powder. It is an amino acid body builders use to repair muscle after a workout. I would suggest you talk to your doctor about it first, though. You never want to take anything that could possibly interfere with current medications. Your doctor may also have some ideas for you as this is a common side effect of certain chemos.
muscle relaxers, gabapentin, cymbalta, vicodin, NSAIDS, yet none of them have touched the pain. The most effective medication so far has been the muscle relaxer. My GP stopped the NSAIDS in fear that it may damage my kidneys. My hx is mild DM currently under excellent control. My exercise has been limited for the past year due to amount of pain and my "unsteadiness" due to the pain and muscle weakening.

) Well any way I was shopping and had to get some Shower to Shower bath powder and picked up a different kind than I usually get. It contains chamomile. And ever since I've been using it I never once woke up to itchy legs! :) Relief at last!!
Adrienne, "Gabapentin is for stabbing pain in lower legs & feet (due to swelling?) " Gabapentin capsules, tablets, and oral solution are also used to relieve the pain of postherpetic neuralgia (PHN; the burning, stabbing pain or aches that may last for months or years after an attack of shingles).
and the doctor there prescribed me gabapentin 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).
Do I remember right that this neuro bowed out because he wanted a 'more experienced' doc to treat you with Tysabri - and then the newbie 'undiagnosed you instead? Do you know if you will be taking the form of Avonex that you mix from powder before injecting? That might save you from an allergic reaction if the doc thinks you were sensitive to the perservative in the pre-mixed and pre-filled syringe form of interferon in Rebif.

Pharmacist suggested to try some magnesium rasberry powder, which i have taken for one day and with immediate response, my cramps disappeared in an hour. I feel a little better in general. But today I noticed I have some constipation and with some tint of blood in my stool. I have never seen the tint of blood in my stool before.

I'm 134 days clean and have been dealing with a lot of physicall stuff still. I, too, won't take any drug route anymore. Just went off my last Rx (gabapentin) 56 days ago. I have that chest tightness, lack of motivation too. In fact, just this past week I had days where I was dizzy upon arising, every time I just stood up, all day....then my b/p was low agaiin.
I also had the sensation on the bottoms of my feet like there was powder on them. I would look down to the bathroom floor thinking I had used body powder and spilled it. Of course, I never told anyone becuase I was too embarrased about it. The itching started then and I have had that problem off and on for years now. The electric stuff eventually went away. Ten years ago I was in a wheelchair for several months. I was weak and had parasthesia in my torso which is still here.
9 top Neurologists, general doctors, acupuncture, acupressure, Chinese herbs, SSRI's, Gabapentin, Cymbalta, Lyrica, Nor & Amatryptilines, migraine meds etc. etc... I had to resign from my job of 15 years. I continue to be on an extensive search for Doctors that can help in any way. We've been to some of the top people in the industry and had several diagnoses and treatment options. 1. Diagnosis: Cervicogenic Headaches - Recommended specific Physical Therapy. Tried these session twice.
(Keep in mind I knew absolutely nothing about drugs at all at this time and was completely nieve to any information he told me). He decided to used Gabapentin to get off the lyrica. Before this he was the friend i had known my whole life so loving and wonderful. During the change he would get so angry with me out of no where and explosive angry, belittling everything about my body, mind, and soul. I justified that he was in pain trying to get off this drug and it was not him.
