Neurontin and bleeding

Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin and bleeding

neurontin

Even though it says to stay away from grapefruit and maybe other citrus while on gaba, I also discovered that drinking Squirt and some other popular clear sodas with citrus will greatly interact with gaba and cause a feeling of being slightly drunk (they should mention grapefruit AND Squirt on the insert and the neurontin website because people don't think of grapefruit with sodas). I have gained about 15 pounds either from inactivity or gaba or both over the last two years.
Then I went to Steve's house for a few hours. It was fun. But I started bleeding today and I'm all bloated and feel very gross. I pocketed my Ativan this morning, for the record. I'm going to do it again tonight, too. If my mom gives it to me. I had tacos for lunch. I ate way too much today.
I hope you find out what is causing your low white blood cell count to drop, and also do check the list of side effects for Neurontin and see if it has any warnings about bloodwork results. But I suspect your low white blood cell count is because of some other reason than the medication, becuz the only one I'm familiar with that CAN cause that is cortisone drugs.
The hands are manageable but my feet feel as though an internal vise is twisting them. I am taking Neurontin and it seems to lessen the pain. This morning, nearly three months after finishing chemo and having a clean CT scan two weeks ago, i began bleeding, not heavily but enough to scare me. There were some clots which I had before diagnosis. It has let up for now but I am wondeing, could this be a sign that the cancer has returned?
Anyway, I was put on a massive dose of Neurontin and seemed ok at first (started smaller, gradually added more and more). at first i didn't notice much...maybe a little dippy and klutzy. But i tend to have weird reactions to things (like i've heard a lot of people gain weight on Neurontin -- I lost weight like crazy...could hardly eat or sleep, in fact).
I am on Neurontin and Prozac. The Neurontin is at 600mg and Prozac is at 10mg every 3 days and Valium 2-4 mg per day. We had to go to that dose because the Prozac was causing stomach bleeding. Over the last several years I have been on every SSRI out there and getting discouraged about what will work and help control the depression. The every few day thing with Prozac is not working, I just want to hybernate. I feel like we should be looking at Vegas Nerve Stimulation.
Have been kept on the neurontin and put on amytriptylene and chlorpromazine (supposedly for pain). I had upped the dosage of the neurontin, but that resulted in quite severe chest pain... so I stopped that quite quickly... Will see how things go.. I, like you, have always suspected the c. haemangioma as the culprit.. although I'm told that the follow up CT and MRI show no new bleeds...
She was not getting her period for a month straight we took test after test and negative we also took blood test and results came back negative so she took the depo. She has severe back problems due to previous pregnancy and was also taking Neurontin what effects can the 2 drugs have on our baby???? Please help to ease our minds!!
Followed up with clinic and was diagnosed with depression again and practically made to try more antidepressants. I was also given Neurontin for my numbness/tingling/pain that I have been having before the headaches even started because the problem had worsened and I was miserable. I tried the medications only to hallucinate horribly. Pharmacist told me it was the medication mixture and doses and the doctor at the clinic said I was again, depressed. I refused more meds. After too many E.R.
I have a friend who is a nurse and was treated with a medication that caused her to steal drugs at work and beat her adopted child. It was Neurontin and has a class action suits from bipolar and other patients. If you google "neurontin class action," you can read about it. Wellbutrin can trigger mania in some people. It's not your fault, so I hope you are able to get beyond this stigma. You should see a psychiatrist if at all possible as soon as possible.
My doc said that is normal and nothing to worry about. I was put on neurontin for my headaches and told that this was all migraine related. I am not so sure. If anyone has any clues, please let me know. I haven't been able to post a question yet. I will ASAP.
Hi i also have maddening itches, i get it on my baxk and arms, and at times i just want to rip my skin right off, cool showers do work quite well.
for it and so now I only have part of my stomach and everything was re-routed and that is why I can't take NSAID meds, motrin based products and aspirin based products, they all cause bleeding which for me could be deadly. :( Not sure if I am just stuck in this spiraling rut or what.
I had severe internal bleeding that required several blood transfusions, and also developed agressive double pneumonia. I was released 11 days later. A month latera follow up MRI showed a nodule on my thyroid. A needle biopsy proved it benign, however, the day after the biopsy, I had an odd rash on either side of my throid, that were identical. The next morning there it was on my chest.
My skin seems so thin that the slightest scratching breaks it open and causes bleeding. I'm 74 yrs. old and am having many new symptoms such as reddening and burning under the skin of my legs. I know that some things come with aging, but do not think the intense scratching is related to aging. I believe it is due to the progression of my MS. .
Without medication id rate it 10/10. I take neurontin, paracetamol and verapamil. The verapamil is a drug my neurologist has put me as the neurontin+paracetamol is not enough. Verapamil is used to hold off the onset of migraines and it has helped slightly. Had a medical breakthrough in the past couple of days.. Ive seen a million different Drs as im sure most of you have but one has finally found, what i hope to be, the cause of my severe facial pain.
Personally I have kind of dropped off of it because I feel it makes me MORE groggy and withdrawn than helping. But then I am disgusted with feeling so tired and down and in pain BUT I'm not depressed about it at all. It's a nuisance but expected and I try to look at it that way. I hope you find the answers that you need. when I was new I posted questions so fast and furiously it was beyond words. You've come to the right place. Nobody ever seems to mind and they are just SO helpful!
Then I was admitted to the hospital for abdominal pain, high white blood count, low red blood count and they thought I had some sort of internal bleeding, but never could really figure that out and thought I possibly had diverticulitis on top of everything else & ended up getting discharged & had a colonoscopy done on an outpatient basis. Now this past 6 months, it's just kinda gone downhill.
I am relieved and angry . My neurologist has me on neurontin for pain and it works like magic. I begged her for topamax after researching it for 2 minutes lol. at this pont in time I am not afraid of anything. Possible side effects don't scare me any more. weight gain does lol slight BDD going on also along with OCD and all the other initials out there. Talk to your Dr. but try anything once If it doesn't help you you can stop!
She had the surgery and less than a week later was in the emergency room and OR again after the L5 vertebra broke and began bleeding into her spinal column. The surgery fixed the break and she spent months in a brace and regaining a portion of mobility. However, she is in great pain. She has been dealing with it for months and was sent for an EMG recently where it was determined that she has severe damage to the L5 and S1 nerves in her back.
I will go back in six months for another colonoscopy.. I asked him if this is what is causing the bleeding and he said no... Probably the hemorrhoids... But what about the lower back pain?? I am on a heating pad right now.. I can always connect the lower back pain with what happens next.. I feel the urge to have a bowel movement and when I go there is blood... When my back is not hurting, there is no blood... What are we missing??????????????
Welcome Stacey and I am sorry to hear that you have been having so many problems and pain! I was diagnosed with MS in 1993 but thankfully have been in remission until this year. In October 2006 I presented with a sharp "ice pick" type pain in my right temple and my left eye was drooping and the left side of my face was numb. I was treated with solumedrol and prednisone and was fine until Feb. 2007. In Feb.
I have it right now and can barely sit still! I had all blood work done and my iron and other mineral levels are fine! Here are the meds I am currently taking: Depakote (750 mg); Klonopin (0.25 mg), METHADONE (yes, methadone for the RLS; 30 mg a day), NEURONTIN (for the RLS, 2400 mg a day), Ambien (10 mg a day). I have tried every dopamine agonist on the planet and I developed severe augmentation! I will not try them again, as they only made my RLS worse.
* Accupunture = which no result at all * Doctors in Singapore and Malaysia, suggest her to take pills, LYRICA and NEURONTIN = give more bad headache, she really can't stand them all. * Been to Neurologist in Singapore and Malaysia but none of them can found out. * Been to Dental Implant Doctors in several Hospital in Singapore and Malaysia, no result at all. * Even been to Amsterdam, Netherland two times and met Professor, and he also can't tell.
One doctor told me I haveBack Pain with Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have MS and the MS is called Arthralgia and Muscle problem.Now another told me that Diagnostic were that he note Facet Arthrosis in the lower spine -L4-L5 and L5-SI and mild facet hypertrophy.But no significant disc bulge or protrusion is seen at any level. Disc space are well maintained. Now after my baby was born 2 month she came down with Baterial Meningitis after I stop breastfeeding expain that to me.
The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
Welcome to Part 6! Please make yourself at home!
Hi I'm married, recently I have been having lower burning pain at the bottom of my spine that also radiates to my scotum and penis shaft. Any ideas on what this could be? my doctor did a rectum exam of prostate and said it was fine. This has been going on now for 8 months. My penis is also very sensitive now.

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.
