Gabapentin hallucinations

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin hallucinations


Avatar m tn Such symptoms included agitation, disorientation and confusion after suddenly discontinuing Gabapentin that resolved after restarting Gabapentin. Most of these individuals had a history of poly-substance abuse or used Gabapentin to relieve symptoms of withdrawal from other substances. The dependence and abuse potential of Gabapentin has not been evaluated in human studies.
1334842 tn?1275680447 His nerves are waking up and last I knew he was on Vicoden, Lexapro, and Zofran. He was supposed to be taking Gabapentin, but ran out while we were dating. when we first got together he was very nice to me, almost exactly like me. He complimented me all the time, cared about me, etc.
Avatar m tn Today he is having Hallucinations. He knows they are not real but he sees animals, bugs, etc. with eyes open or shut. Nurse assured this sometimes happens. Has anyone heard of this before? How long will it potentially last?
329994 tn?1301666848 My primary wanted me to try Savella w/o my test results back yet - waiting on the tests from the rheumatologist, but after reading that other post about Savella, that scares me. I have a friend on Gabapentin (which I believe is Neurotin sp?). Any advice? I want to be prepared because I have found that doctors do what works for them and I like to know what I am up against. I also take Clonopin, Verapamil for my heart, Potassium and Synthroid. Thanks for any advice!
Avatar m tn Trembling/shaking, delusions, dementia - all listed in the side effects of Gabapentin on I took it for a short period of time for nerve damage and all it did was make me tired...I wasn't on it but 5 or so days so I stopped taking it. If I were you I would call your Dr's office. Wishing you good luck!
1316877 tn?1275204213 I dropped at 32 mg, dont know if it makes a differance, not untill day 7 did the rls kick in, last night i wanted to cry. Hallucinations have eased up, but happen now and then, Last night i was alone till 4am, ifelt so supid being so scared of something i knew wasnt real. But at the time, i thought it was. I had a mental break, or short term psychosis. Today, for real, i am hitting the clinic when my girl gets of work, im past the point of tolerance.
Avatar n tn 25mg northiptilene at night. 8 panadol daily. 1800mg gabapentin per day 3 drops Rivotril 2.5 mg/ml Currently suffering with hallucinations due to a lot of meds. Any alternative suggestions to the current medication cocktail would be much appreciated.
Avatar f tn I've been doing some research on these sorts of electrical brain/body "zaps" because I've been having them for the last week. I've been taking lexapro and recently started going off of it because I didn't like the side effects. I found on a website that one of the withdrawal symptoms are electrical "zaps". It could be if you've had a change in any meds that this is the cause. Ask your doctor about this symptom.
Avatar f tn Some people have psychiatric symptoms get worse or appear after taking an antipsychotic like a guy I just talked to today took a low dose of risperdal for anxiety and he started having hallucinations after taking it. Everyone is different really and their brains adjust to things differently.
Avatar f tn After drinking too much alcohol you can have olfactory hallucinations which affect your taste. This is usually a withdrawal symptom. However, if it is persisting, alcoholic hepatitis should be ruled out. It can also be due to a problem in olfactory receptor mechanism. This could be due to a smell getting trapped by nasal polyps or tumors. Sinusitis with post nasal drip can cause both a phantom smell and nausea and this should be investigated first by an ENT.
Avatar n tn His psychiatrist is currently prescribing Zyprexa (10 mg), Risperdal (2 mg/2X a day), Paxil (60 mg/1X a day), Gabapentin (250 mg in the am; 500 mg in the pm); Topamax (100 mg; 2X per day) and Xanax (50 mg am; 50 mg pm). He is constantly sedated and has terrible symptoms of tardive dyskinesia, swelling of the tongue, hallucinations, restless sleep etc. He has gained a LOT of weight and has elevated cholesterol requiring treatment with a statin. His appetite is insatiable (primarily carbs.).
2025930 tn?1328915749 Doctor told ER doc no benzos and they gave me gabapentin, but I am having severe reactions to it and its making withdrawal worse. vertigo, hallucinations, uncontrolable jerking, trembling, eye sores/styes, vision problem feels like I have blinders on, eye twitching, can hear my heartbeat in my ear, am in constant panic/anxiety mode, tightness in chest, heart pounding out of my chest, I feel like I am doing and going crazy at the same time.
10996785 tn?1432816577 I have nothing against them aside from the fact they really bother me with the mind altering side effects. Hallucinations are a known side effect. My therapist told me he had hallucinations on Neurontin. I happy you tolerate it fine. Every med seems to bother me anymore. Boy I'm burnt out tonite....
1168718 tn?1464987135 Baclofen is rapidly absorbed, so some doctors use it as an "as needed" (PRN) medication. It is related to Gabapentin, and can (not always) cause withdrawal syndrome. When taken "as needed," withdrawal syndrome would be rare. I started it as "as needed at bedtime." I now take 20mg 3 times a day + 10 mg Norflex twice a day + 10 mg Valium at bedtime to manage the spacticity. http://en.wikipedia.
293157 tn?1285877039 I said no, I haven't so she wants me to try this for awhile and she if it helps me with more energy to feel better. I'm also to keep taking Gabapentin for pain. I again said, so you can't give me a Dx yet? Even though the report said could be MS?? No, not yet and she said it can take years...I said it's been years.. she said she wants to keep track of how things go.
335728 tn?1331418012 It is usually well tolerated, but side effects of amantadine include insomnia, mood disturbances, allergic reactions, confusion, and hallucinations. So that is it in a nutshell I guess...I am taking it for fatigue and so far it hasn't changed anything but it's only been 2 days so I guess I have to give it a chance! Thank you for the well wishes and I hope this is helpful!
Avatar m tn One of the things that help me get clean was Gabapentin (Neurontin). I took 300mgs a day 3xs a day and it help relax me and helped with sleep. Only get a small amounts worth just to get you throught about 5 days of withdrawal and then discontinue use. Worked better for me than any benzo did. Also helps keep a stable mood. It's not a magic pill but certainly very helpful.
Avatar f tn The other medications for migraines include topomax, depakote, propranolol, gabapentin, tegretol, verapamil... and many others. For most of them, it is hit or miss. But before trying anything else I would want to try getting you of everything-- how great it would be if the headaches went away... and they just might!
Avatar f tn I'm doing all I can, but you my friend, need to get more analgesia, so put pressure on your PCP -- get those medications. Gabapentin may also give you some relief, but you'll need at least 1600mg / day. Some people are on twice that dose. Your pain doc whould be thinking about that and other drugs that will help lower the pain score, not worrying about addiction or hyperalgesia. Let me find you Dr. Forest Tennant's latest editorial -- http://bit.
Avatar f tn I was finally diagnosed with neuropathy november last year and was put on gabapentin for it (which I had already been on in much lower doses for anxiety prescribed off-label). The increased dosage since that time has helped tremendously with the neuropathy pain. I had been sick and tired of sleeping 14+ hours per day due to the Risperdal a few months or so back and so I started to reduce my dose on my own. I first cut my dose in half each night from 6mg to 3mg.
Avatar m tn The surgery was three weeks ago. He's been on a mix of prednisone, tramadol, gabapentin, and a 4th liquid medicine I can't recall atm (but he's no longer on) as well as at 2 pain patches at home (not sure how many while boarded). This is a specialty surgical center and not his normal vet, but she referred us to them. Worse than before surgery? When we finally took him in FOR surgery he was very very bad. He's either back to that point or maybe a little less mobile.
2211406 tn?1340502886 Now every time I have seen him, crying and exhausted and depressed and in severe pain, and telling him I'm off the MMj because I can't afford it and I really needed some pain relief, he just avoids it or says no, or like he tried putting me 'trials' of Lyrica, Cymbalta, Gabapentin, etc... I had been on them all before but no pain relief, and the side-effects were horrendous! After my Dr.
Avatar f tn Allergies, Hallucinations, Muscle aches and pains, Hypertension, Palpitations, Urinary frequency, Light headedness, Depression Codependency, Impulsiveness, Phobias, Rage, Shyness Memory loss, Difficulty concentrating, Perfectionism, Restlessness. This is INSANE, isn't it? What a huge injustice and what a disservice to the suffering patients not to have PROPER testing for the above.
4971738 tn?1390568984 It helped calm down my irritation, anger and psychotic symptoms--hallucinations and delusions. I started on a small dose 1 mg then 2mg. I climbed to 6 mg until my prolactin level went way past 1000, and my gynecologist went up in arms about it because it completely stopped my menstruation. It got lowered to 4 mg.
452063 tn?1324078516 Do not stop using tramadol suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, hallucinations, trouble sleeping, or breathing problems. Talk to your doctor about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when stopping the medication. Do not crush the tramadol tablet. This medicine is for oral (by mouth) use only. Powder from a crushed tablet should not be inhaled or diluted with liquid and injected into the body.
1673455 tn?1305215720 My shrink told me if I realize the voices I hear are not real, or the visual hallucinations don't scare me there is nothing wrong. He says my gabapentin causes hallucinations. It may do that , but I've heard these derogatory voices since I was about 19 years old. I am now 65, years of meds and therapy, good old voices never give it up.
1146027 tn?1261698521 ) I''m on a Fentanyl Patch 50mcg q 3 days, Cymbalta 120mg, Amrix 30mg (muscle relaxer), Restoril 30mg, Norco 10-325mg 8 tablets a day, Ritalin 40mg/day, Mirapex 300mg, Gabapentin 1500mg/day plus all my supplements. I do have to take Magnesium 800mg/day and I eat a couple of bananas a day otherwise I too have horrible muscle cramps. My potassium also runs low normal even with the bananas.
Avatar m tn You can't take Ketamine orally or you get hallucinations and Ibupropin kills my stomach. So far the cream has helped some. I would like to know more about your symptoms and what happened. Because it sounds similar.
222267 tn?1253305810 Zyprexa is a mood stabilizer for mania not depression. You dont have to gain weight with zyprexa. Go for 6 small meals a day with a carb and a protien. No sodas and sugar. I have lost 46 pounds and I have been on zyprexa for about 7 years. I am loosing 30 more.
