Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin for animals


Avatar m tn These individuals were taking higher than recommended doses of Gabapentin for unapproved uses. Most of the individuals described in these reports had a history of poly-substance abuse or used Gabapentin to relieve symptoms of withdrawal from other substances. When prescribing Gabapentin carefully evaluate patients for a history of drug abuse and observe them for signs and symptoms of Gabapentin misuse or abuse (e.g. development of tolerance, self-dose escalation, and drug-seeking behavior).
Avatar f tn Good morning yall! I slept for 9 hours last night! I think the gabapentin helps me sleep! I have to admit that I woke up at 4 and automatically grabbed the 5 pills no thinking so I ran to the bathroom and flushed them! I am so glad that I didn't take them! I really wanted yo prove to myself that I could quit with them right here but after 2 years it is a natural action for me to take them when I get up. So now they are gone! Gotta say that I'm not feeling as strong today.
Avatar m tn I started to think if it has something to do with....We had a hunting cat before. The cat took many animals home and killed them alive. For sure those little poor ghosts died in “tragedy’ in our house...Just guessing my two babies might have been haunted by them. Well…maybe not because I can’t see why it did not happen right away and started recently. Two of them…always suddenly jump out of the bed or leap out of where they are at.
Avatar m tn There are several of us on here who have a similar eye complaint: seeing a bright flash, like the afterimage of a flash bulb, when we blink, and sometimes, on upgaze. This is transient symptom for most of us, lasting anywhere from a few days to a few weeks. When the "spot" in our visual field passes over a dark background, the spot appears light. When the spot passes over a light background, it appears dark.
Avatar f tn I am 5 weeks pregnant and have been taking 10 mg hydrocodone for 2 years now. My Dr also prescribed me gabapentin and I find it so easy to not take the pain meds, and get more rest with so much less withdrawal symptoms. This may be something you can speak with both Dr about. I did research on taking the gabapentin while pregnant and have not found any negative info on pregnancy however, you should still get professional advice from the people who know your body.
Avatar f tn This article reviews known and hypothesized pathophysiologic mechanisms surrounding these phenomena and the clinical implications for pain management nurses. Introduction Opioid analgesics continue to be the mainstay of pharmacologic treatment of moderate to severe pain. Many patients, particularly those with advanced cancer, require chronic high-dose opioid therapy. Achieving clinical efficacy and tolerability of such treatment regimens is sometimes hindered by two opioid-related phenomena.

996946 tn?1503252712 No experience with gabapentin for pets, but I've been on it for many years for nerve/spinal injury pain, it's very effective, not addicting. Side effects for me were minor, such as sedating. But it can also cause constipation Linda and I know this is a huge prob for Aramis.
329994 tn?1301666848 Anyway, he put me on medication for the fibro and it also helps the PN so kill two isses with one pill. I am on Gabapentin for now, to see how it works. I have only been on it for 1 day so can't say yet. Also, he does want to do a brain MRI to rule out Multiple Sclerosis. I am sure that will come out fine, but ok, just be sure LOL - you never know. so that is Tuesday. I am extremely claustrophobic and so they are giving me Valium for the procedure, please pray it is enough Valium.
551343 tn?1506834118 My GP is going to arrange for me to see a different rheumatologist in the city rather than local. I dont care as long as I get somewhere. All I want is some peace no pain is that too much to ask really. They offer me medication to help the nerve pain but cant tell me why I am in pain enough to have this medication its ludicrous LOL. They gave me gabapentin which is horrible and made me feel spaced out, and Amytriptline for the night and when I took it I could hardly get up in the morning.
Avatar f tn We have a right to live close to a normal life. Animals are treated more humanely than we are. Please, for your sake and for everyone who is suffering some kind of pain, that won't go away, go to this link and sign my petition. Maybe the non-sufferers will stop judging us and will understand our extreme suffering. Admin, please don't delete this link, it is not in competition with your site.
Avatar f tn so hoping that it doesnt go back to that. Thanks for sharing your information. And I praise you for resucing abused animals out there. That is a very wonderful thing you do. Well if I get any new info on my situation I will try and share.
5763738 tn?1373850392 My symptoms were light headed feeling, tunnel vision feeling, daydreaming, butterflies in the gut and other areas of the body, the craps, runny nose, not able to pay attention to anything other than when can I get another 4 - 6 pills to pop at one time. The GABAPENTIN was a miracle worker for me. Please post tomorrow and let me know how our day went. You may want to take some GABAPENTIN this evening and see if you get a better rested sleep without the Opiates.
1316708 tn?1310919782 i have tried the cymbalta with no success, the lyrica can be quite sedating so my doctor advised me not to try that one since the rest of my medications are. i am waiting on a perscription for the Savella and have been taking the Gabapentin on a regular basis. the gabapentin does help alot with my back pain but there are lingering effects of the disease.
Avatar n tn The recurrent outbreaks usually are too infrequent to be worth the expense and inconvenience, and sexual transmission of genital HSV-1 is not common, so continuing treatment probably doesn't help very much in protecting partners. For all those reasons, I see no need for repeat testing for HSV. The main reason would be if there is any question about the initial diagnosis of HSV-1.
2126606 tn?1346348724 To give you a brief overview, an advisory panel to the FDA has recommended tighter restrictions on hydrocodone-containing drugs, which would essentially classify them among the most dangerous prescription medications available to patients. Having receiving patients for hydrocodone dependency for many years, I seen firsthand how dangerous this drug can be, which is why I am pleased to see the FDA taking steps to help prevent abuse.
5051753 tn?1362885985 careful with using any homeopathic stuff.....there are many that are safe for animals..but some are NOT. be careful of those containing alcohol. what did you use????? I can give you a good suggestion in that regard too and how too prepare it... I will do a longer reply a bit later....
415867 tn?1323369103 2 (8-2009) 3.9 (8-2009) I've only been on gabapentin for a week. I think I will email my primary care provider tomorrow morning and ask her why she didn't order a T3. and see if she will so the endo has it wednesday morning. this is all so fustrating to me!
Avatar n tn Now having MS and trying it again at 60, It helps. It is a plant! It is okay for me to take heroine, because it is pill form? LOL= What a joke! Alcohol is much worse, believe me because I drink like a fish & usually get nasty? I would rather kill my pain with something natural. Enough said!
382218 tn?1341185087 Anyway, he talked about how it has been approved for MS patients who have trouble with walking. He commented on what a big deal this is for people with MS, not just because of what it can do, but because it is "...the first MS medication that can be taken as a pill instead of injection," or something to that effect. Huh? This drug is not a DMD for MS. It is a drug to treat MS symptoms. There are countless oral meds to treat the wide variety of MS symptoms.
Avatar m tn I also got script for ambien that my doctor said not to use for more than a week. It does allow me to sleep for about 4 hours. If I wake up to use the restroom or my dogs wake me up I can't go back to sleep. The hardest thing about this is not knowing when and if there is an end in sight - now day 7 I don't want to give after going this long. Any advise or ideas would be appreciated. Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn There really isn't a lot a doc can do but give you meds to help with the discomfort. Just becareful because some drugs givin to help detox can be addictive. Only take a very short period. But it can be done without them. Normally all they'll do at the hospital is send you back home,unless your blood pressure has sky rocketed or some other health issue. How you feeling today?
Avatar f tn Good luck finding something that works for you. Gabapentin may help relieve some of the nervous system symptoms.
5196591 tn?1365166315 I use to be a heroin addict and have been on subutex! I am also on a low dose of xanax because of my severe anxiety! I take Gabapentin for pain since its a non narcotic....On top of it all I have asthma and I am smoking!!!!!! I see a specialist and she says everything looks perfect but how can I be sure? Should I go into rehab????
1627868 tn?1333889942 I was also told they were giving me something else I can't remember-nope. But they did give me a script for Gabapentin. I don't really care to try this stuff, but I'll give it a go I guess. I am not sure why, but this doctor wants me to come back in 6 months. I'm not going to bother. If I do have fibro, I will just see someone closer to me. This doctor is very expensive and he won't treat my symptoms either. I don't care what I have anymore, really I don't.
