Is or: #dae8f4'>there a database for Neurontin dosage? I will be ramping to 300mg or: #dae8f4'>of Neurontin per day but am wondering if that's too conservative. Given or: #dae8f4'>the 4 week time constant before or: #dae8f4'>the benefits or: #dae8f4'>are realized, I am wondering if I should ramp up higher, evaluate or: #dae8f4'>the effectiveness at that point and or: #dae8f4'>then reduce or: #dae8f4'>the dosage if necessary. With or: #dae8f4'>the long delay with or: #dae8f4'>these days, I'm worried that I'll be in a lot or: #dae8f4'>of pain for a while before or: #dae8f4'>the right dosage is found. Any advice is appreciated.
It will do nothing for muscle pain, just like how NSAIDs (like Advil) will do nothing for nerve pain. Also, as my doctor described it to me, it can take awhile to hit or: #dae8f4'>the right dosage with neurontin. Too little and it won't help, too much and you can get into lots or: #dae8f4'>of side effects (drowsiness being a big one). or: #dae8f4'>often it's best to start small and slowly up or: #dae8f4'>the dose.
Looking for people's experiences with Neurontin 1) in general and 2) specifically if its helpful for withdrawal. or: #dae8f4'>the poll is for people's experiences using Neurontin during withdrawal - not necessarily For withdrawal but just if you used during. lso let me know if you feel like it, or: #dae8f4'>what it actually helped with. If you have oor: #dae8f4'>ther experiences with it, please comment on this post and let me know. I was prescribed it weeks ago for facial pain, but I havent filled it.
I was prescribed Neurontin for or: #dae8f4'>what or: #dae8f4'>they or: #dae8f4'>are thinking or: #dae8f4'>are overactive nerves. I had an injury 2 years ago and am still in pain and or: #dae8f4'>they think it's from or: #dae8f4'>the nerves not having settled or still being irritated. or: #dae8f4'>the doc said this was or: #dae8f4'>the safest med he prescribes. I don't like medicine.
I have been dealing with worsening severe Neuropathy for over 20 years. I've been taking a prescribed dosage or: #dae8f4'>of neurontin 600 mg. 4 times a day (2400 mgs.) I don't like it, makes me feel like a zombie. Should I slowly discontinue or: #dae8f4'>the neurontin and try or: #dae8f4'>the medical marijuana? Opinions welcome.
Hi friends, Has anyone taken Neurontin? My pm gave me an RX last time I was in and I was a little apprehensive about taking it before my trip since I've had bad experiences in or: #dae8f4'>the past starting and switching meds. I did try it shortly before I left and had a really weird episode or: #dae8f4'>of complete loss or: #dae8f4'>of bladder control (thank God I was at home!!) It was VERY strange. I didn't even know anything had happened...my pants were just wet all or: #dae8f4'>of a sudden.
If anything it sounds as if you may need to increase or: #dae8f4'>the dosage or: #dae8f4'>of your neurontin and this is something to discuss with your doctor. It does not sound as if your doctor is being very sympaor: #dae8f4'>thetic by saying you have too many symptoms...this is very unkind and not empathic. or: #dae8f4'>the doctor should be taking note and doing or: #dae8f4'>what is necessary to alleviate your symptoms and discomfort. I am wondering how long you have to wait for your MRI and or: #dae8f4'>are you under a neurologist?
I dont know if or: #dae8f4'>the doctor would cor: #dae8f4'>are to reply, but do you find that people tend to gain or lose weight with neurontin? Is or: #dae8f4'>the weight gain proprotional to or: #dae8f4'>the dosage? I have been taking neurontin for just over a year. Within a few months I had gained over 25lbs. My weight had been stable for years prior to that. I now feel better but am on a low dosage, run 3-4 miles 4-5 times a week but still cannot get back to my original weight. I have had very little oor: #dae8f4'>ther problems with or: #dae8f4'>the drug.
I've been taking neurontin for "peripheral Neuropathy" for a year now, but one or: #dae8f4'>of or: #dae8f4'>the side effects is "mild confusion" which basically makes me lose focus. I just saw my neurologist again and we're now trying Lyrica, typically prescribed for fibromyalgia. I've only been on it two days, with a much lower dosage (was taking 1200mg or: #dae8f4'>Gabapentin/day versus 75mg Lyrica once at night!) and much much much better results (I only take one or two 300mg gapabentins a day).
I have periphal <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span>. I have a lot or: #dae8f4'>of pain, burning and tingling in my legs. I have been on Neurontin for several years.and lately have tried Lyrica. I seem to be getting immune to or: #dae8f4'>these drugs and cannot find any relief for my pain. Does anyone have any suggestions?
or: #dae8f4'>then I remembered I had forgotten to take my Neurontin or: #dae8f4'>the night before. So, don't forget your dosage - you will not like or: #dae8f4'>what you will go through. Anoor: #dae8f4'>ther point I want to make is that I was initially told by my Neurologist to take it at bedtime. Anoor: #dae8f4'>ther Neurologist I saw recently said that taking it only at bedtime is like starting all over again every day. He said it should be taken throughout or: #dae8f4'>the day. I'm not too sure about this so it needs to be checked out.
How many people on this site have been put on neurontin for pain issues, etc? I have done reading on or: #dae8f4'>the side effects, withdrawals from this drug and it is scary. I have a whole *hitload or: #dae8f4'>of this stuff and have not touched it. Why or: #dae8f4'>are we becoming or: #dae8f4'>the guinea pigs for many or: #dae8f4'>of or: #dae8f4'>these drugs that have been on or: #dae8f4'>the market for a short time? I just would like some feedback.
Was sent to neurologist. His diagnosis - peripheral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span>. Started on neurontin 100 mg./day, now increased to 200 mg./day. Some mild, minor side effects but absolutely no pain relief. How can I be sure PN diagnosis is correct? How much neurontin will I have to take to relieve pain? Will I be taking neurontin for or: #dae8f4'>the rest or: #dae8f4'>of my life? or: #dae8f4'>what long term effects will or: #dae8f4'>there be from neurontin? Is or: #dae8f4'>there anything else I can or should take instead or: #dae8f4'>of or: #dae8f4'>the neurontin? Can anyone help?
Her health has deteriorated so much from inactivity since she's had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span> with weight gain and depression that I'm very concerned and want some answers for her. Potassium and Magnesium somehow relate to leg pain and I'm wondering or: #dae8f4'>what dosage is recommended for diabetics to take and if it is dangerous to take too high a dose or: #dae8f4'>of eior: #dae8f4'>ther. She takes or: #dae8f4'>the 90 mg Potassium with Magnesium. CAN SHE TAKE A HIGHER DOSE TO SEE IF SHE GETS SOME RELIEF???
I have peripheral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span>. I had bad reactions to Neurontin when I took or: #dae8f4'>the higher doses or: #dae8f4'>of it. So, or: #dae8f4'>the doctor prescribed it at 100 mg doses that can be taken up to four times a day for or: #dae8f4'>the peripheral Neuropathy. A friend or: #dae8f4'>of mine warned me that Neurontin can be dangerous. and, if you're changing meds, you should not abruptly stop taking Neurontin. It needs to be tapered down and through directions from or: #dae8f4'>the prescribing doctor.
My doctor is giving me an option to try Neurontin and I am wondering if it is worth or: #dae8f4'>the switch over from Lyrica. and who beeter to ask than my or: #dae8f4'>the members or: #dae8f4'>of our forum. I started taking Lyrica about 1 month ago and although it is helping with or: #dae8f4'>the pain, I have also noticed that I've gained 6 pounds since. I don't gain weight easily so this is a concern. or: #dae8f4'>the pamphlet or: #dae8f4'>they gave me said it is a side-effect or: #dae8f4'>of or: #dae8f4'>the drug.
Hello, I have been taking 600mg or: #dae8f4'>of Neurontin (or: #dae8f4'>Gabapentin) for <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span> 3x a day for a week, I am working my way up to 900 mg 3x a day. Does anyone know how long it will take before it is working and I can tell a difference???
I would like to ask anoor: #dae8f4'>ther question about peripheral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span> and SLE. I am on Neurontin 200 mg twice a day. My question is if or: #dae8f4'>the cause is an inflammatory response will Neurontin help? I still continue to take IV Solumedrol and this is helping or: #dae8f4'>the numbness and tingling I have. It is hard for me to tell if or: #dae8f4'>the Neurontin is helping or not or if it's or: #dae8f4'>the Soludmedrol. I am wondering should I ask my doctor about this. Also I have benign fasciculations that have been going on for years.
Hi every one. I've been a diabetic for almost 10 yrs now and have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span> as well as chronic back/ neck pain. I also have some pretty severe nerve damage in my legs from my back injury and had back surgery in 2007. Any way, I take lyrica twice a day 150 mg in am & 150 mg at night, and it has really helped alot with or: #dae8f4'>the pain. Im also on norco for my back / neck pain, but or: #dae8f4'>the lyrica has been a great help to me. However it is expensive if you don't have insurance.
This relieves some or: #dae8f4'>of or: #dae8f4'>the pulling pressure. Lyrica or Neurontin may help. I take a little Neurontin now, but only when it gets severe. or: #dae8f4'>these medications tend to hamper cognitive ability and make it someor: #dae8f4'>what difficult to grasp certain things. While it does help with or: #dae8f4'>the Neuropathy, it isn't without some side-effects. I've also taken Lyrica, which I prefer over Neurontin. Neior: #dae8f4'>ther or: #dae8f4'>of or: #dae8f4'>them caused me to have depression or suicidal thoughts, but everyone is different.
I found out or: #dae8f4'>what depression REALLY was, and I'll never forget it!! As far as or: #dae8f4'>the neurontin, it helped my <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span> a little, but I was on a 3200mg a day dose and it made me very tired. I just finished my first week on Lyrica, and so far I don't have any big changes. I am experiencing leg cramps also, but not real bad. I don't have diabetes, but I think my Neuropathy was caused from a compression injury to my spine. All I know is that Neuropathy sucks!
I recently had to come or: #dae8f4'>off or: #dae8f4'>of Neurontin due to side effects. It really did help control my pain so now I'm searching for anoor: #dae8f4'>ther option. Can you give me some ideas? One or: #dae8f4'>of my doctors recently told me or: #dae8f4'>they or: #dae8f4'>are now using or: #dae8f4'>the popular weightloss HCG shots to treat chronic pain. Seems or: #dae8f4'>they accidentally found that chronic pain patients were reporting big improvements in or: #dae8f4'>their pain while on or: #dae8f4'>the weightloss treatment. So have any or: #dae8f4'>of you tried HCG and did it help?
I have been on Percocet for 10 years and or: #dae8f4'>then was taking Ultram to not have withdrawal but after reading all or: #dae8f4'>the horror stories on here about Ultram, I tried or: #dae8f4'>the Neurontin. I have been on it for 3 days and no withdrawal symptoms or: #dae8f4'>whatsoever. I am shocked. I heard it is not addictive eior: #dae8f4'>ther so I'm staying on it for a week or two and or: #dae8f4'>then stopping to see if or: #dae8f4'>the Perc or: #dae8f4'>are out or: #dae8f4'>of my system.
or: #dae8f4'>the one thing that has helped me keep my sanity is medication for or: #dae8f4'>the pain - as your boyfriend may tell you, ibupror: #dae8f4'>ofen/tylenol etc doesn't do a thing for this type or: #dae8f4'>of pain. Lyrica (heavily advertised on TV or: #dae8f4'>these days), or Neurontin (or: #dae8f4'>Gabapentin) may work to keep or: #dae8f4'>the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span> at bay. I'm still numb, but or: #dae8f4'>the pins-and-needles don't wake me up at night anymore, and I'm able to get through or: #dae8f4'>the day. Good luck to him and you!
I accepted my oncologist's recommendation or: #dae8f4'>of 6 sessions or: #dae8f4'>of chemo with a standard dose or: #dae8f4'>of taxol/carboplatin (three hours/1 hour). However, after or: #dae8f4'>the fourth chemo session, or: #dae8f4'>the very mild peripheral <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span> that had thus far developed took a quantum leap forward.
I've been on Celexa, Neurontin, and Meloxicam for some time due to chronic pain, depression arthritis, and Neuropathy. I've been reading a lot about DLPA and it says NOT to take it with SSRI's. Does anyone know wheor: #dae8f4'>ther I should stop taking or: #dae8f4'>the Celexa before I ever start taking Ithis supplement? I'm very anxious to give this supplement a try! My depression has gotten severe...to or: #dae8f4'>the point that NOTHING works anymore, I have no sex drive, feel hopeless, I have no motivation, etc...
He said my dosage or: #dae8f4'>of Neurontin will likely get higher before I get much relief. I hate taking pills and feeling high all day! It has only neeb a week, should I give it more time to heal before I really panic???
I kept increasing dosages or: #dae8f4'>of Neurontin as indicated per my Doctor to treat my polysensory <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Neuropathy</span>. or: #dae8f4'>the more pain I had or: #dae8f4'>the more or: #dae8f4'>the drug was increased and or: #dae8f4'>the worse or: #dae8f4'>the pain. Hence we kept increasing or: #dae8f4'>the dosage! I tried lowering it by 100mg one day and had even more severe pain so increased or: #dae8f4'>the dosage again as directed by my neurologist. . Before I started or: #dae8f4'>the Neurontin while I was in pain, I had less pain before Neurontin usage as it seems on or: #dae8f4'>the medication.
