Avatar f tn Once I sat up and took a gabapentin and 1/2 of a cyclobenzaprine, I began feeling better. It's now 5am and I've had to take another 1/2 cyclobenzaprine and a "cramp tab" (my husband gets these for me at work, they work sooo well).

5657776 tn?1371803486 I have trouble sleeping when i take gabapentin. I take 600mg at bedtime right now. My doctor just started me on it and I took this 5 hours ago. I am supposed to take another 300mg in the morning. I took the 600mg at like 9 pm. It is now almost 3am so I took 20 mg of cyclobenzaprine and the am dose of gabapentin. Is this safe? Like I said I am new to these meds and want to make sure I am not overdoing it.

Avatar f tn Today I still have constant burning sensations and tingling in my back, legs, feet, arms, and hands (now neck too). Sometimes I have numbness. Now taking Gabapentin 3x daily, Ibuprofen 800mg, Cyclobenzaprine 10mg. My primary doc is on vacation and I want her to give me an MRI order for my full spine. I've only gotten an order for only my lumbar spine from another doctor. What could I have.....
Avatar f tn Thanks for writing in. Neurontin is used for treating neuropathic pain. The side effects of neurontin or gabapentin are dizziness, drowsiness and peripheral edema. There may be mood swings, hyperactivity, hostility and concentration problems. It should be used cautiously in renal impairment due to possible accumulation and toxicity. Check with your neurologist if a nerve block could help.
Avatar f tn Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI antidepressants or anorectics), Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs), and other tricyclic compounds (e.g., cyclobenzaprine, promethazine, etc.), or Other opioids." If you, your physician, and pain specialist decide that the current combination is the best pain regimen, make sure you monitor closely for risks for seizures, breathing problems, and falls, especially with your other medical conditions, i.e.
Avatar f tn Don't remember having any anxiety issues while on it the last time, but at that time I was also on Gabapentin, he took me off the Gabapentin in September and had to put me back on it. Then took me off it again last month and is telling me I have been on it too long and can not take it anymore????? Well I made it through today, a little on the sleepy side. Coca-cola is my friend today.
Avatar f tn 47pm. I took a cyclobenzaprine 10 mg and 100mg gabapentin upstairs and laid down for a few minutes until my back was relaxed enough to make it downstairs. Once downstairs (in agony), I took a pain pill. I feel that my pain level has gone to a very manageable level. TG. Ever since yesterday I can feel a vibration/twitching in my labia area (left side) and now, within the past 20 minutes I've noticed that might right eye is puffing up without pain. WTH is going on with me?
2207073 tn?1338935516 Lol well november 2011 imaging showed anular tear and bulging at L4/L5. So at that point i started new pt and he put me on gabapentin, meloxicam and vicodin 5/500. Continued with all that for 6monyhs and only got worse!!!! I suffer from sever pain in back buttock and both legs! Numbness and weakness as well. Its been bery hard because i have 3 wonderful beatiful children and almost never am able to play with them to the extent i wish to. And my stress has put strain on my relationship.
1283286 tn?1312915566 Doctor prescribed me Lyrica 75mg twice daily for nerve pain and cyclobenzaprine 10mg three times daily as a muscle relaxer..Has anybody had this combination of drugs prescribed for them? Did you feel sleepy alot? Any dizziness?Any help would be appreciated..
2207073 tn?1338935516 long-acting/short-acting opioid medications, cyclobenzaprine, valium, gabapentin, 4-5 OTC naproxen sodium tablets, and an anti-depressant. I most certainly believe the medications you are taking are helping you and also helping the injections work more effectively. The Gabapentin and the meloxicam are medications that significantly help reduce sciatica.
4640081 tn?1357478863 He offered Cymbalta, which makes me so weak, and lyrica and gabapentin. I refused all expect a new pill, cyclobenzaprine. He said, “This pill is a slow release pain killer and you will be almost pain free.” Oh, why didn’t I realize history repeating itself? Well, once again, I was foolish and took the pill. Just as I swallowed it, my husband reads the info out loud from the ‘net, “Cyclobenzaprine is a muscle relaxant.
Avatar m tn i've tried a dozen other medications and i either have horrible reactions (gabapentin made my pain 10x worse cyclobenzaprine made me too sleepy, topamax made me hallucinate patterns, etc... etc..) --- so basically, a few questions: 1) what do you think is up with my neck? does anyone have similar things happening to them symptom wise? 2) how do you guys deal with neck pain that is made worse by walking up and down hills, thusly agitating my neck?
Avatar f tn For example, I do not know if you are taking gabapentin (Neurontin) for seizure or for neuropathic pain. If you have seizure disorder, then tramadol is NOT recommended to treat your pain. Also, please note that there is a major drug interaction between tramadol and cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril). Taken together can further increase the risk for seizures. Below is an article by Mayo Clinic Proceedings May 2010. It may help you and your physician make better choices in pain management.
529159 tn?1224994626 My Doctor rolls her eyes up every time I tell her something new. With only Gabapentin and cyclobenzaprine, and Doxepin for sleep ( which does'nt work when these cramps hit). My last visit the Doctor suggested counseling. Good luck. Oh and SSI has refuted my disability claim as well, stating fibro is not disabling.

Avatar m tn They are not a good combination with opiates, and since you are tapering, you are still on opiates. Which one are you taking, flexerol (cyclobenzaprine)? They do work, and make you drowsy as well. That's also why they can be addicting! Plus they can cause respiratory depression including failure, both voluntary and involuntary when taken with opiates, so be careful.

Last year I had a high grade migraine that lasted for 3 months straight. My neurologist told me that I have a low grade migraine constantly, and that I've been able to adjust and function with it. I have been pulled from work by my doctors due to my FM and migraines.
Avatar m tn No doctor seems to believe me when I talk to them about my situation or they don't care, I have since been prescribed 10mg cyclobenzaprine (Primary care) once a day, 500mg naproxen sodium (podiatrist... bunion, arthritis, hyper elastic tendons causing the joints in my feet to collapse under pressure) every 12hrs, 100mg gabapentin 3 times a day from my neurologist for "minor neuropathy caused by improper long term levothyroxine levels... none of which really does much.
Avatar n tn My doctor recently prescribed a compound cream for my pain. It is a mix of lidocaine gabapentin cyclobenzaprine and ketoprofen. It seems to work well on nerve pain if you apply it to the pain at the center. It is filled through medi--stat Rx. Unfortunately some insurance plans such as mine do not cover it. However, you can still get a small amount for around $35. If he keeps the pain at bay for more than a day, then the small amount can still last a while.

Avatar f tn From what others have said, the anti-anxiety medication you were prescribed seems to be on the safer side, and with any luck, you won't need it for long. I'm currently on day 6 of being opioid-free - my own regimen consists of 100 mg of gabapentin (Neurontin) every six hours to alleviate nerve pain/restlessness, and 10 mg of cyclobenzaprine (Flexeril) at bedtime to loosen up the tension in my back and induce drowsiness.
Avatar n tn For the fibro, I take 1 50mg amitriptyline and 1 10mg cyclobenzaprine at bedtime, 1 500mg naproxen twice a day, Effexor XR 150mg at bedtime, 2 gabapentin at bedtime (I know I should be taking 3 a day, but they make me so sleepy that it's difficult to function and the doctor suggested two at bedtime instead), Innopran, Lipitor and a few others.
Avatar f tn They prescribed Gabapentin/Neurontin to see how many of the side effects I'm feeling will go away. It should take about a week for that to have some effect. I asked at my post-op whether there would be another MRI. Dr. Delashaw said that unless there was some specific reason for concern, he didn't normally need one. If the prescription I have now doesn't work, they might ask for a new MRI. I can get that done locally and have it sent to Seattle electronically.
