Can neurontin kill you

Common Questions and Answers about Can neurontin kill you


Avatar n tn Obviously over my written precription lol...The thread was about Neurontin, anything that makes you feel good can become a dependency drug , Is that bad? I dont think so. Moderation is the Key to handeling any medical problem. I find the cocktail that works for me.. we are all different. Try not to over take your medicine. Also remember the Detox process is NASTY, Your prescription is up to the docs.. They can decide to NOT write it again, keep that in mind also.
Avatar f tn -) As to Neurontin (gabapentin), I currently take 3600mg/day. This is the max dose and as Pastor Dan said, I worked up to it slowly. I take it for neuropathic foot pain. I do not have any side effects from gabapentin. It was not effective all by itself. I also take 50mg/amitriptilyne. Together the two had my foot pain under control for about a year. Now I will be adding Lyrica to the cocktail.
1278070 tn?1276228005 Angie, when you get to 900mg 3x daily, and you still have pain, I think you could call your doc and just find out if you can squeeze in sooner to see him, just a thought if you want to and if your pain is unbearable. I think Susan's post about how much she needs to get pain relief suggests you may also need an increase, too. But again, as you said, that you've read it doesn't work for some people, that may be your situation, in which case the doc might add to or change your meds.
Avatar n tn Clonidine is new as of Dec03. In Dec, patient was driving and alert. Now facing assist. living. We've read that neurontin can have immediate great results for bipolar, but often is ineffective w/in a year. Today's news about antidepress. is another concern. Considering geriatric psychiatric specialist. Your thoughts?
390388 tn?1279639813 of any changes in behavior (if there are any). Also, I use a TENS unit (you can google this to see how it works for pain). I find that it helps. It may also benefit him to seek a Pain Management they would better know how to treat something of this nature. Again, I'm sorry and I truly empathize with his situation. I know it is a 24/7 pain that is difficult to rellieve. Take care of yourself and him.
Avatar f tn Why did a doctor prescribe it for you? You never stated why you were taking it. I find neurontin to be great for me--I take it to deal with high anxiety and potential siezures.
799181 tn?1246690273 today is my 48th day clean from using codeine, and all i can think about is using..... the cravings today have been unbearable, in the last 48 days i have had some cravings, but they usually go away as quick as they came, but today for some reason is different. i found myself sitting at lunchtime thinking how i could get some..... of course i am not going to, i have come to far to go back to the hell i was in.
147426 tn?1317269232 They start throwing this **** out there when THEY have no other answer for you! As far as I am concerned you can count me in on this one.
Avatar n tn For example, you can be clean for 10days and have oxy's in your cabinet that you refuse to use, and you would be ok. right? well, I can guarantee you that if you had nothing at all to fall back on, you wouldn't make it to even the 5th day of detox. See, all of us will feel fine as long as we know there is a something within our reach, it keeps our mind and body out of the gutter, but god for bid we don't have something, then my friends, thats withdrawal.
393685 tn?1425816122 I started piling on the weight and got very lethargic until i decided i need help so i went to a sureslim centre that helps you manage your weight control with one of their weight loss plans. The 6 month course costs £460 but before you can start the course they send you off to have a full blood test that requires you to not eat or drink anything except water for 12 hrs.
Avatar f tn To anyone who has an addiction or is still feeling it I just want to say you're not alone and I've got your back as much as I can. Because going through this truly makes you want to help other people. Having quit figs and some dabbled with alcohol I can say this was opiates are terrible and prescription ones are so goddamn dangerous because its an easy habit to conceal especially with pills. I wanted to tell some people and hear your story and support if you're at all interested.
544292 tn?1268886268 You can do this tramadol warriors! You can beat this! You will do this!
544292 tn?1268886268 You can quit tramadol. You can stop. You can recover. I believe in you!
581210 tn?1220838380 If you notice a commonality to the allergy, great, you can avoid those things. You can even write down everything you were exposed to, close to the day you got the reaction, and figure it out. And anytime you get a runny nose, you are going to get a headache, so could be a few allergies are at the root of your migraines. Which a very good idea if you tend to get allergic, is to build up your immune system by eating well and so forth, the stuff I recommended earlier.
Avatar f tn My son is serving 30 days in jail and they choose not to give him Loritab, Kolonipin, Neurontin, or even Motrin 800mg. They are going to give him nothing. We know he is addictted to these drugs afte 5 years. The Kolonopin they switched from Xanax and Valium, the Loritab they have alternated with the Oxycontin, the muscle relaxer and sleeping pill we did not even try for.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hello Tramadol Warriors! Top 'o the evening to you and welcome. We're glad you found us! You can do this.
1316877 tn?1275204213 have you heard of what im refering to? Do u suggest, or think its worth trying?
Avatar f tn Although without being able to examine you I can not offer you the specific advice on diagnosis and treatment that you need, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. Arm/face pain and neck stiffness may appear due to nerve irritation in the cervical (neck) spine because the nerves that supply the arm also start in the upper cervical spine.
544292 tn?1268886268 You're in the right place if you want off the Tramadol! You can do it! I believe in you!
Avatar n tn When you have something that you got from a simple surgery and it is something you've never heard of in your life, and it basically changes your life, you tend to want to know as much about it as you can. Especially when they tell you, there is really no cure, really no real one treatment, and you most likely have this for life. I did a lot of research, and every thing I read, rather a book or online stated that indeed RSD does and will spread in many cases.
544292 tn?1268886268 Hi Everyone and Welcome, Come on in and make yourself cozy. You can do this!
1339481 tn?1312960431 I'm sure I deserved it anyway, after all I liked meeting bands and his british accent more than I ever liked him. Thank you mother for all of the wonderful support and the childhood you provided for me. Oh but I'm sure I shouldn't reflect on the past. It's all under my control now, you can't hurt me anymore mother so WHY am I still hurting? Why does it all seem like yesterday? Why can't I get over the past? Why can't I get through today? Why can't I stop obsessing over the future, or lack of...
Avatar f tn I am sorry your in this kind of pain it really must be horrible and I wish I could do more, maybe some of the other members here can offer some ideas. Have you tried trigger points and blocks? They might be something that could offer some relief.
544292 tn?1268886268 You also will never need an understanding ear as much. You can do it. You can quit. You do not need to be a slave to Tramadol.
198154 tn?1337790865 Some people recomend DXM, but I don't think it does much good when one is going through withdrawal - it *CAN* help reduce ones tollerence to opiates/opioids - pick up a bottle, remember, you want DXM ONLY .. you can try this, but I found it never really did anything but make my feel 'trippy' in higher doses (NOT pleasureable when you're kicking) ..
544292 tn?1268886268 Understanding is essential! You can do this. And yes. Eventually you will heal!
Avatar f tn Tylenol doesn't touch it (can't take motrin, alieve, aspirin, and so on) and even the neurontin doesn't kill all the pain. I'm just hoping that if I can somehow get things moving more that maybe I will be able to deal with this and it won't be major. The PT said I had to be very careful or I would make things much worse. The stupid doctor called in the tramadol and wouldn't budge on giving me codeine. Then the nurse tells me I have to watch out for serotonin syndrome and siezures!!!
255157 tn?1198242835 For those of you out there that would doubt the pain and tend to judge me for my failed attempt to kill myself I only have one thing to tell you....Live in my shoes for just one bad month and then you can try to understand! I haven't slept more than 3 to 4 hours a night for over 4 yrears and sometimes I don't sleep for days on end unless I am heavily medicated. I am so tired that I can barely function on the best of days. The only meds I am currently taking Vicodin 7.
Avatar f tn As to whether opiates will kill you in the future once you get off of them, no, they will not. However, you will need to be very careful not to get addicted again, since you know that you have that predisposition, which is likely genetic. Good luck to you.
518117 tn?1429279873 spent around every type of person you can think of. and yes, it will make you highly paranoid. you have always got to watch your back. what a way to live for so many years. they take your life, do nothing for you while in prison and then throw you out into the world. and todd losing my momma while in prison, well it was simply heartbreaking to him. he has no closure. my step-father kept my momma away from todd while in prison. my momma wanted to visit him. todd and momma were extra close.
