Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin and ibuprofen


329994 tn?1301666848 He was a mechanic, and many other things in his career and has had a devistating attack to his brain by Gabapentin. What I mean is he was a smart guy who was always on top of what ever was going on and now he acts like he has had a labotimy (sp?). I found him petting the coffee pot like it was a dog, saying how well it worked and how it was a mystery to him. Is that normal? I did not have these issues when I took it, I just always felt like it wasn't doing anything for me.
1573548 tn?1330460463 He asked me if I'd ever taken gabapentin and when I said no he asked why. I'd never heard of it and no other doctor had ever told me about it. It started helping me right away and it is amazing. It made me so angry that I'd been suffering in so much pain for so long and this could have changed my life so much. I would have liked to have a good time during the summer instead of laying in bed in pain and wishing I could move without hurting so much.
620877 tn?1282767697 I know that some of you may take ibuprofen when taking a DMD to help with the flu like side effects - but what I am wondering is for those who are undiagnosed or not taking a DMD - can ibuprofen help with symptoms? I stay away from ibuprofen because of my acid reflux - but have taken it a few times when tylenol just doesn't seem to help my headaches. I have noticed that the ibuprofen helps.
Avatar n tn Doc said MRI says MS, referral made and morphine, gabapentin and ibuprofen given.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend had a major stroke which left him paralyzed on the right side which he says causes him pain when he moves. His right eye is unusable and hurts all the time but worse when he is watching TV too much, he has dizziness which also gets worse when he moves around too much. He is wheelchair bound. He sleeps or has his eyes closed about 18 hours a day. He says it helps with his dizziness and eye strain. Is this normal for some stroke patients?
Avatar n tn Thanks. I don't work and my husband was unemployed for 2 yrs. and we went thru our 401k and maxed credit cards. Now that he has a job we probably won't qualify, but I will definitely check out this possibility. I feel guilty considering we now have an income, but on the edge of bankruptcy... Who isn't now? Thanks for the info!
Avatar m tn I am 31 and have been diagnosed with RSD/CRPS and it is very painful and it all started with a football injury in High School. I am trying to see what other people with the same condition are receiving for treatment and it is working for them. I am currently on 40mg Oxycontin 3times a day and Oxycodone imm realease 30mg 3 times a day, Baclofen 10mg 4 times a day, tramadol 50mg 6 a day, Vitamins of all kinds, testosterone injection once a week, Naproxen 3times a day, Trazadone 150mg at bedtime.
Avatar n tn can tylenol and ibuprofen be taken safely with neurotin and tramadol to control pain in a heartattack patient?
Avatar n tn But, I never had the bottom of my feet stop hurting, burning feeling Now 32yrs later, I was mugged, beaten and have suffered a serious concussion, my feet are hurting me more and the burning pain has gotten worst i read now that those that get GB have blood transfer, etc...........
Avatar f tn I have also been lucky enough to have been seen by Doctors at the MAYO Clinic in Jacksonville, FL who have prescribed a mass of medicines to take in rotation to help with the pain. Such as Tramadol, Gabapentin, and Topiramate with vitamin B,D, iron, and IBUPROFEN. However, the only true substance I have found that kills the pain is cocaine. Again, I am not joking! But, I am not one to break the law or advocate its use. I give you this info.
2042217 tn?1336531452 Singulair mostly in spring for asthma. Gabapentin for the FIBRO pain. Excedrin and prescrip Ibuprofen for cramps and migraines.
Avatar n tn I also took gabapentin, which caused vertigo but enabled me to sleep. Regulare ibuprofen Advil, and other OTC did not help the pain much, even though I don't think my case was very severe. Even without any medications, i seem to be dehydrating naturally and need to try to drink more water. Milk of magnesia is helping to make me regular now. I developed a rash in the area where the sores were, but don't know if it was related to the shingles.
Avatar m tn Dr. prescribed 300 mg Gabapentin along with Vicodin and ibuprofen 800mg for pain.Is this going to get better,stay same,progress? I looked at a Dr.Timothy Helm's Low Level Laser Therapy,do you have an opinion?Any info or answers are greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn Many swear by AIP diet, peleo and others. Experiment and see what works for you. I aim for organic whole foods and low sugar. I have recurring Episcleritis in my eyes and it is painful. This last time instead of waiting for it to getting bad and do prednisolone drops from which I seem to get rebound effect, I used Ilevro which is like ibuprofen for the eye. This has worked great the past few times I start to feel an achy pressure in and around my eye. Dr. gave me a few fee samples.
Avatar n tn I can get because it hurts too much to bear weight. In the meantime, I would get her on some gabapentin, and have her gently stretch out her achilles before she attempts to get out of bed. Have you ran a metabolic panel on her? Check her vitamin D level and have her start taking at least 1000 I.U.'s a day. Please keep me updated!!!
147426 tn?1317269232 It is well known that traditional pain relievers like acetaminophen and ibuprofen are next to useless. Even the narcotics are pretty ineffective. There are three that seem to get prescribed the most. These are all originally anti-seizure meds. It makes sense. A seizure is a big nerve discharge in the brain that shouldn't happen. The nerves just spaz out. A paresthesia is similar. A set of nerves starts sending a signal that they shouldn't send. They also "spaz out.
11072290 tn?1415066835 Not everyone can take Ibuprofen and the swelling may be due to inflammation due to the arthritis or from oedema. Ibuprofen can cause oedema (water retention). Although you do have osteoporosis (thinning of the bones) I presume you are getting treatment for this, if not, then you should be. Calcium and Vitamin D is usually prescribed by the doctor. Ask your doctor to refer you to the TriageTeam and for you to be referred to Pain Management.
Avatar n tn at bed time for 10 years and it wasn't doing anything for me and so I began to taper off gabapentin and experienced a god awful withdrawal, my Doctor had no advise as to how to properly taper and so I did on line research and found your post and a couple of other posts suggesting that I might have a magnesium defieciency and decided to check out some of the magnesium supplements available one of them was (ionic-fizz Magnesium plus) I was stuck at 1200 mg.
612876 tn?1355518095 Tuck has mentioned some great choices for medication to ease the discomfort and I will add that Neurontin (Gabapentin) works fairly well in calming the nerves. I would definitly seek a Physician that will prescribe an opiate for you. As far as I know, this is a lifelong condition...At least from my Doc. If you ever need to chat about what's going on in your life, Don't be afraid to contact me. I would love to talk with you.
1794671 tn?1338798991 Norco is simply hydrocodone and acetaminophen. There is hydrocodone and aspirin. There is hydrocodone and ibuprofen. The latter two can irritate your stomach over the long term but this complication can be addressed without a liver transplant. Additionally if you damage your liver slightly versus severly damaging it, you could potentially have issues with pain control as you won't have a choice but to stop taking the Norco.
Avatar f tn injections, alternating heat and ice, pain meds, and rotating ibuprofen with Tylenol, and the Voltaren gel or a compounded gel. Basically it's trying to piece together a bunch of things to get some relief. One thing that might help with your feet, albeit just a little, is to roll your foot on a tennis ball. I'm not sure if it really helps but it doesn't hurt. You've found a great website here for support. It has a lot of very knowledgeable, empathetic people on it.
1207048 tn?1282177904 When I walk it feels like I'm stepping on glass and nails. I've tried taking tylenol and ibuprofen for it and neither is helping very much. We are going camping this weekend, at an amusement park, so I'm going to be walking a lot and I don't know if I can get in to see my doctor before we go. To make matters worse, my left hip and thigh are very sore. If I feel the thigh muscle it feels fine, but "inside" it feels like it is knotted and pulling on my hip. (Did that make any sense?
2198453 tn?1343248340 My doctor put my on dicyclomine, reglan, ibuprofen and Clonapin. They all treat the symptoms and no I did not go through hell jumping from 8/2 thinking your calling my bluff is ridiculous. But your talking to someone that tapered quickly, I did not relapse, When I detoxed down with tapering I never went and took my suboxone I help me ground.
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 n tn Two particular ones widely used for pain caused by the nervous system itself are neurontin aka gabapentin and lyrica aka pregabalin. These interfere with the modulation of neural signals, dampening them down. Which is why they help epileptics, and also why they are often effective in treating chronic pain. Unfortunately they also have a list of side effects a mile long, and typically it takes 3-6 months for the body to adapt and for side effects to fade. NNT is around 4 to 6.
Avatar f tn But I had also been shoving gabapentin and prozac in my mouth ALL day everyday....BAD DEAL....stupid...of course, but in the drugged, scared mind set I had....I wasn't sure I could get off the hydrocodone and in my panic mode, I was overdosing on the proazac and gabapentin. (not taking as prescribed...imagine that? lol) So...all that to tell vision was majorly affected and it gradually healed....over time. Each medication we are on CAN affect our vision....I know for sure.....
17175264 tn?1454329751 The cold medicine has tylenal so I think I'll take some ibuprofen 800 mg and see if that helps. I sure hope so.
146298 tn?1258715847 I had something similar last year. I thought it was a migraine. The pain was on the left side of my head, in back, just below my skull, and along the jaw line, cheek, and eye. I would have "jolts" of pain, with a constant underlying pain. None of the migraine meds, nor oral steroids worked. Neurontin (gabapentin) did work, but it took a while to get up to an effective dose. I ended up being told it was trigeminal neuralgia and occipital neuralgia. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I was put on Gabapentin and ibuprofen but was NEVER told this was the assessment. Been in chronic pain for 5 years now, after a hysterectomy. What is the best treatment. Am on 2400mg Gabapentin and 60mg of Cymbalta, but don't really want to have to take this for life.
Avatar f tn I have untreated diabetes because I don't have health insurance and when I eat alot of sugar which makes me pee alot because my kidneys are trying to flush out the over abundance of sugar, I get the same symptoms. What I do is stop eating the sugar (I tend to go on sugar benders periodically when I know I shouldn't) and take 800 mgs ibuprofen and 500 mgs of tylenol until it passes. Could you be diabetic?
