Oxycodone gabapentin

Common Questions and Answers about Oxycodone gabapentin

oxycontin

I am not really familular with the dosage of the buprenorphine and gabapentin. However 120mg of oxycodone is a huge amount are you planning on taking that doge all at one time? I take 60mgs aday 15mg every 4-6 hrs. Plus I am on fentenyl patches 100mcg every 72 hrs. The best Idea is to speek with you dr to see if the change can be made watch how you word the questions drs dont like to be told what to do they would rather think its they are the one to come up with the idea. Good luck.
I had a Maligram two years ago they hit a nerve, the pain ran down the right hip all the way down the right leg and into my r foot, it thru me over the table, I am on Lyrica, gabapentin and Oxycodone, my back surgeon wants me to take Norco, but the primary has me on Oxy, 5/325 Norco 10/325, I want to wean myself off the oxy, so if I took oxycodone one day and Norco the next, would there be a reaction?
I've read some of the past threads and other people's comments confirm my suspicion that I've grown dependent on Oxycodone. I'm not sure what to do about it because, like others have said, I cannot take time away from my life to detox. I started taking oxy while recovering from spinal cord surgery. I was home with bed rest for two months. Work was great about it but I've felt like it took a long time to get back into functioning at the level I need to at work.
I have been taking 6-7 oxycodone 30mg for the last 4 months, prior to that 60-10 Norco 10/325 for 18 months. I desperately want off, and I want to go cold turkey. I have Clonodine, Neurontin, Clonazepam- all to help me with withdrawal. I get mixed results when I ask online if it's safe to withdraw from opiates cold turkey. Can someone answer me? I am in otherwise good health with the exception of a bulging disc in my back which started this whole ugly mess.
then joy of joys I had a 6th surgery repeating the dilaudid to tramadol switch and back as well as Oxycodone. After being on the Oxy-c and Tramadol together then just the tramadol for a couple months I got a severe case of Shingles with the treatment being Oxycodone and anti virals...
Have taken Oxyconton 5 x 10mg daily and oxycodone 30 x 3 daily for well over a year. Is it possible to use Gababpenten as an aid to the withdrwal symptoms of pain plus anxiety from getting off the junk? Do I need to add something like xanex or what is the process?
Hi everyone, I'm withdrawing from Oxycodone/Percocet right now (10 mg 6-7 a day for 5 years) I'm using neurontin to help with w/d. I was wondering if anyone has any experience using this med for w/d? Like dosage, how long you took it, things like that. It's helping a lot but it's only been a couple days and I hate the way I feel, I want to take a pill so had and I'm telling myself to just push through this and soon I'll feel better but to be honest I'm feeling pretty hopeless.
Hi. I'm wondering if it is safe for me to take Gabapentin for withdrawal symptoms from methadone? I read somewhere that the gaba is sometimes prescribed for that. I have never taken it before in my life and got a hold of a few 300mg capsules the other day. I have been into opiates off and on for about 8 years, getting pretty bad into them this past year. I think it is alot mental with me though. I started off on Perc 5's and 10's, graduating to oxy 30's about a year ago.
My primary wanted me to try Savella w/o my test results back yet - waiting on the tests from the rheumatologist, but after reading that other post about Savella, that scares me. I have a friend on Gabapentin (which I believe is Neurotin sp?). Any advice? I want to be prepared because I have found that doctors do what works for them and I like to know what I am up against. I also take Clonopin, Verapamil for my heart, Potassium and Synthroid. Thanks for any advice!
I was currently on Oxycodone for 3 montsh post and pre surgical period and now that I am trying to stop them I am in severe depression. I am and have been on Cymbalta and from what I am reading this may or moay not help but it definately isn't doing the trick for me. Any advice???
Also, I didn't think of it until your email, but I took myself off the stuff I am supposed to take for fibromyalgia. It is callled gabapentin. So, last night, I started taking those again. Maybe that is why I am able to NOT take any narcotics yet. I am so glad you mentioned arms too. I thought I was going crazy but my legs AND ARMS just have hurt almost constantly. I don't know what is normal pain and what is withdrawal.
I live in chronic severe pain 24 hours a day I take 30 mg oxycodone four or five times a day. I so desperately want to stop all narcotics they're causing me quite a few problems.. Like constipation is the worst, body sweat the and dry mouth, irritability.. I've been on this regiment with a pain clinic for several years now. Two years ago I had a neurostimulator implanted in my spinal cord to help alleviate a great deal of pain yet it could never fully get me completely out of pain.
What are some of the best home remedies for stopping Oxycodone use? I have no money for the suboxone. I have been taking 5/325 8-10 a day for around 2 years prescribed by my VA doctor and I want to quit and I have tried but the withdrawals got the best of me? Any help is much appreciated.
Hate to sound like a lightweight here because I only took on 10mg oxycodone a day. Usually around dinner time. Every day for the last 4months or so. I had it prescribed for knee issues. I drank about 4 beers a day during this time too. Don't know why I did it. Look back now and still don't understand. But I ran out of my prescription and my doctor was on vacation so I didn't renew it. I figured it was a good idea to stop. I am on day 4 and I get maybe 5 hours at most sleep a night.
And it has been so horrible but i did find that taking vitamins and also gabapentin helped alot with the actual symptoms and you can also look up the thomas recipe that helped me alot bananas for the rls including hot hot epson salt bath i also do relaxation calming bubble bath also if you can get someone to massage your legs helps relieve in the pain for a bit..
muscle relaxants, huge doses of Gabapentin, but nothing working but opiates. I've been wearing icy-hot heat pads on my chest and back but I require such a strong strength that I've broken out in a rash where the pads are affixed. Last night I woke UP at 1:00 am with the back pain and was up all night, just crying into my pillow. I hate this. I see my doctor next week for my annual physical. I know exactly what he will say ..."I don't know what to do for you.
Today is my 1st day free from Oxycodone. I took 900 mg of Gabapentin and I have NO withdrawal sickness! I intend to use the Gabapentin to kick the OC habit. Day one and doing good!!
I was told I would be on pain management drugs (oxycontin, oxycodone, muscle relaxers, etc.) for the rest of my life. Recently I decided I was sick of being exhausted all the time and I don't want to take my medication any longer even if I am in pain. (Thankfully, exhaustion has really been my only problem with the oxy other than a little constipation. I have been blessed that I didn't have the other side effects that many suffer like fuzzy thoughts, irritability, etc.
I've tried gabapentin several times in addition to being on oxycontin and oxycodone (and some other meds at the same time.) I did find it helped with the pain but I had a bad side effect in that it made me slur my words (to the point people thought I was drunk and I don't drink.) Also, you cannot stop it cold turkey due to a seizure risk but it's not like you have withdrawals like you do with narcotics. I would also make sure you see how it affects you before driving.
There are no direct interactions between gabapentin and paracetamol but if paracetamol is in combination with an opioid like oxycodone or anti histamine like phenyl propanylamine, which could cause and exaggerate sedative effects. Central nervous system and respiratory depressant effects may be additively or synergictically increased in taking multiple drugs that cause these effects especially in elderly and debilitated.

I was taking 100mgs oxycodone a day for chronic back and knee pain, 900mgs gabapentin also for chronic pain, also 3(7.5mg) zopiclone at night to sleep and 1.5(7.5mg) during the day to sleep. I have stopped the oxycodone cold turkey with bad withdrawals, now at 13 days. My question is can I safely stop the zopiclone cold turkey or do I need to slowly taper off it?
I became addicted to oxycodone 15mg in 2012 after my first back surgery, obviously I was on them while I was in the hospital for 7days after surgery then took them for about 4 days once I got home. I tried to stop and became sick and realized I was addicted. I go to a pain clinic for my chronic pain. Since then I had surgery on my elbow and just 2 weeks ago I had another back surgery. My oxycodone has never been upped in dosage so of course it doesn't help with the pain.
3/6/12: I've been taking Gabapentin since October 2011 first for shingles now for post herpetic neuralgia which some people get after shingles. It has been extremely painful and I've also been taking oxycodone to combat the pain. I have an appointment with a neurologist next week. Meanwhile my doctor is trying to wean me from all these addictive medications. Has anyone taken Lyrica for shingles or the neuralgia pain? Has it helped?

what type of meds did your pain doc prescribe you. i have a hx of oxycodone addictions so i am fearful as to what they can do for me as far as pain control. any info would be very helpful. thank you in advance.
I was prescribed 5 mg of Oxycodone as needed along with the Gabapentin for the God-awful stabbing pain and accompanying painful creepy crawly sensations. This pain has been so bad that I have cried myself to sleep on occasion. The neuralgia began in January and I've noticed for the past week that the sensations and the pain come and go. I rarely take the Oxycodone but still need the Gabapentin on the prescribed basis. I hope this information is of some help to you.
i have to say the gabapentin helped me so much as well.. It made it tolerable, didn't take the withdrawals away completly but it did help so much.. i was able to get up and around after 2 days and eating , and it keeps the anxiety down.. just my own opinion ..
