Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin and aleve


Avatar f tn I had left side pain and muscle spasms so bad that I basically didn't sleep for a year. She prescribed flexeril and Naproxen (prescription strength Aleve). She might as well have given me tic-tacs. I got a little relief but not really. She finally tried me on Baclofen, but I couldn't handle it. I am not on flexeril and neurontin and it has mad a difference.
1473217 tn?1289246676 bc gabapentin is for fibro and if i dont have that then wats the point and its the kind of drug you have to build up in ur system and build down you cant just quit cold turkey........
Avatar m tn I also suffer from radiculopathy and I take opioid pain medication, a couple of muscle relaxers, Gabapentin, anti-inflammatories, and an anti-depressant along with epidural steroid injections. I have radiating pain down my legs due to a similar injury...the biggest difference is it is located in the lumbar spine versus the cervical spine. The radiculopathy tends to be worse the more inflammation is present at the site of injury in your neck.
Avatar m tn Spinal stenosis can cause a lot of nerve pain (burning throughout the low back into the hips, pulsating throb and achiness in the low back and hips, shooting pain and pins and needles sensation that runs through the buttocks and hips and down one or both legs). Nerve pain is best treated with anti-convulsants and SNRI/SSRI anti-depressants. Neurontin (generic: Gabapentin) or Lyrica (generic: NA) and Cymbalta (generic: NA) are good medications to try to help with this pain.
Avatar n tn Anticonvulsant and antidepressant drugs are also useful and you can get gabapentin prescribed. Hope that this information helps and hope that you will get better soon. Wishing you good health.

Avatar n tn Soon my legs will not support me at at. Unless a diagnosis is found as less and less activity causes more and more leg weakness and pain, soon I'll not be able to walk at all. Comprehensive blood tests all indicate hemoglobin, calcium, potassium, sodium and magnesium and other related chemistry is normal.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar f tn Other times the numbness is in the thigh and buttock and is not accompanied by any pain. I have been on muscle relaxers and prescription Aleve but they do not provide consistent relief. Can some point me in the right direction for possible cause & treatment?
Avatar f tn I take 600 mg in the morning, along with two OTC Aleve, and one Oxycodone and the sciatica pain is completely gone within an hour and doesn't come back until late afternoon. I admit, I am also on the Fentanyl patch but I have been taking Gabapentin well before I started the patch and I know it was very effective for my nerve pain prior to starting Fentanyl. Good luck to you. Surgery to be a last resort option.
4823849 tn?1373661429 Ambien, Xanax (just once), Vitamins and Supplements, Protein Shakes and Vitamin Waters, Claritin and Sinus meds, lots of food, and my 100mg Lyrica pills. I’m convinced Lyrica (or Gabapentin) is a miracle worker. And....if you want the long story, be my guest: MONDAY – MARCH 18th | 2 DAYS TILL D-DAY Later this week I am going to attempt cold turkey from 4 Norcos/day. It took me about two months to get down to that low of a dose. I was at 15 pills/day before.
1794671 tn?1338798991 I understand what you are saying about the effectiveness of the norco but I am curious as to what dosages you were on when you were taking the morphine and also the fentanyl and oxycontin. Additionally, the dosage of the gabapentin would been helpful information as well. From taking a look at the dosages, many of us can gauge whether or not your dosages were truly at therapeutic levels or if they were simply in the starter dose range.
Avatar f tn Two years ago, (I still have my tramadol prescription) I starting taking Aleve instead thinking it was better for my system. I gained 30 lbs! Turns out Aleve is not broken down and passed thru the liver and tramadol is. I am back on Tramadol and have the hyperness and dry mouth but hopefully it will get the weight off. By the way, I have fibromyalgia.
285045 tn?1253644928 Hi, I get the vibration or buzzing as some are calling it, haha, and I too get it when I bend my head forward. I'm on Gabapentin and gradually getting to the higher dose. Hopefully it will become less as I get there. Being it's happening to lower back, legs and feet that's all I can do is think of music as I walk and buzz along wherever I go. Hahaha. Got to be slow music though as not very good walking at moment either. Haha.
1807779 tn?1333843902 Ya the aleve and the naproxen are the same thing they do work . I also have taken them under the name of vimovo which is the aleve (naproxen) and something for your stomach (nexium) I think they were even better. From what i can see the maxalt and the zomig are also very similar.
Avatar n tn I was prescribed Topamax along with an appetite suppressant (Adipex) for weight loss a bit over a year ago and stopped taking them after two and a half months. I did not lose all of the weight I had wanted to, but most of it. I had gained 55 pounds while on Paxil over the course of two and a half years. By taking a combination of the two medicines, I lost 22 pounds the first month, 10 pounds the second month, and 8 pounds the first half of the third month.
Avatar f tn - I have been getting numbness and tingling in my hands and fingers, especially my pinky and ring fingers. - I have been getting extremely intense pain in my arms, from the top of my deltoid to about the middle of my forearms. -i have restricted mobility of my hands, I cannot squeeze hard or I get an electric jolt in the hand. It is also difficult to raise my arms. -these symptoms are in BOTH arms, not just one.
Avatar f tn 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.
Avatar n tn One doctor mentioned that she had a tremor of intention in her hand and arm. She has had a CT of her cervical spine, a MRI of her brain and neck as well as a EMG test. If you have any suggestions of different doctors we should see or if you think you know what it could be please let us know. Do you think this could be the result of neuological lyme. Thanks for all your help.
Avatar f tn I also take Neurontin, and many other meds to treat the symptoms of SFN and my other ailments, including an anti-depressant, narcotic, muscle relaxer, beta-blocker, Aleve, and Alpha Lipoic Acid, if a doctor thinks it will help to relieve the symptoms.
11079760 tn?1483389730 8am - 440 mg Aleve 64oz+ water throughout the day 12pm - two Extra Strength Tylenol to cut through the headache (I talked to a pharmacist before doing this!) 9pm - 440 mg Aleve (should have dosed earlier...) Sunday: I'm switching to 600mg Ibuprofen every 6 hours today as the Aleve is tough on my stomach Side effect low down: Fatigue!
Avatar n tn The skin outside hurts all around and the vaginal opening stings and its red sometimes and pink sometimes and it does not hurt to pee and my discharge is the same as it always is... and I have been trying to take Aleve during the day, it seems to help a bit. Sorry that I am rambling, but I am suffering and i cant think about anything but my crotch for weeks now, and i hate it. i hate it and i know all of you do as well. I dont know why we hurt, and it seems, neither does anyone else.
Avatar f tn take robaxin, stress arrest w/gaba and aleve daily to no avail
Avatar m tn Nerve root compression at that level can cause triceps weakness and decreased reflex. It can also refer pain into shoulder blade area and cause pain in your wrist and forearm. When this happen to me, I had everything you have and I was getting a lot of shocking pain in my shoulder, arm and hand. It was horrible. My thumb and first 2 fingers went numb. If your doctor can keep you supplied with Vicoden and muscle relaxants till December, you could probably make it.
11079760 tn?1483389730 I managed with minimal NSAID usage this time, no Gabapentin, and just generally takin' it easy. I slept well Saturday night - although only about 6 hours enough due to Easter preparations - and made it through Sunday without any additional pain meds. I could feel the effects creeping in by nightfall, and had a difficult time falling asleep. Then came the dreaded aches, pains, and nausea. So, almost no sleep last night. Around 4 AM I begrudgingly took 220 mg Naproxyn (Aleve).

Avatar f tn This along with the Gabapentin and Oxycodone and Fentanyl gets rid of the sciatica completely until later in the day it returns, which means more medicine. But I would at least try OTC Aleve. I also take one Aleve in the afternoon if I need it and also 1 at night to prevent sciatica in my sleep. I do also get epidural steroid injections about once every 3 months and I will take a four day burst pack of prednisone (an oral steroid) if I get into a flare inbetween injections.
Avatar m tn I got sick of it so I went to the doctor who checked my ears and said that it did look sore in there and perhaps I had an infection so they prescribed a low dose of amoxicillin. I took about 1/3 of the dose and stopped because the symptoms went away. I didnt like the side effects (bad stomach) so I stopped taking it since the vibrating had stopped. The vibrating came back though after a few days, and it became a constant sense of vibrating.
Avatar f tn Numerous showers or luke warm baths in between each remedy also does not work. The only relief he has found has been with Advil, Aleve, and/or Tylenol, and also the Benadryl advice we found in a previous blog on this site. We are keeping it dry and keeping him medicated to make it through this very rough patch. The pain is such that there are screams and cries that I have never heard before. My husband has experienced this a few times before and knows exactly what the feeling is like.
564072 tn?1218120922 I awoke very tired and so much pain!!!! After breakfast, I went to watch TV and fell asleep around 8 am and awoke at 12:45 pm. So much pain and meds not helping. What to do. Guess I will try to see a PA. The other doctors tell me the want me off of ultram. Some other doctors want to take away the clonnazepam. They want be to go to a pain clinic. Those doctors want me to take the meds the first doctors want to take away. Then they say I go to doctors just to get drugs.
