Gabapentin recreational dose

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin recreational dose


Avatar m tn I have tried requip, mirapex, sinamet, gabapentin, lyrica and a host of others. Ultram was the only one that worked well. For three and a half years I was free of the rls syptoms. Now though I am afraid I am going to experience not only increased rls symptoms but also the other withdrawl symptoms associated with quiting the Ultram. I am looking for responses from others that have been in this boat. I never took the drug for recreation. It never made me high it just relieved the Restless Legs.

Avatar n tn at times a lower dose will work as good or better than a higher dose. and I can say that was true for me, when I was given a higher dose of 2700mg it DID NO MORE to control the pain and all I got were the side effects, so after a 6 month trial my dosage was lowered back down to the 1800mg. I don't get 100% control, I don't think thats possible, but I can say I have leveled off to approx 80%. If I were you I would speak to your doctor and try a lower dose for awhile and see how you manage.
382218 tn?1341185087 my level of fatigue or activity, time of day, timing or dose of medication (I take gabapentin and nortriptyline for it), etc. Any idea why it would vary in different fingers, and has anyone else experienced this? I'm just curious about what others may have noticed. I'm well beyond the point of ever expecting this symptom in general to remit or respond much to meds. It is bloody relentless!
4204073 tn?1361835076 It's also good that he's tapering you UP in dose...rather than starting you out at the goal dose. That will likely minimize the the chances of you feeling high from it. I hope it gives you some relief. Honestly...from a professional standpoint, I can't say I've ever seen anything but very positive outcomes with its effectiveness..and I've seen it used to treat seizures, pain, long-term ventilator related anxiety, anxiety disorders, depression, acute shingles pain, etc.
Avatar f tn for recreational purposes when in fact that is truly the only thing that keeps me from laying flat on my back. It's so degrading. It makes me feel guilty and ashamed to have pain because I am at the point where I would do almost anything for relief. At what point do I find an illegal drug dealer to help me live a normal life? I am so sick of people accusing you of being a drug addict because you just want a little relief...screw you people.
211940 tn?1267884866 I don't know what kind of pain you have, but neurontin is available as a generic (gabapentin) and it's very inexpensive. I think I paid ~ $4/month with insurance. Even w/o insurance it still probably won't cost more than buying a months' supply of ibuprofin. Good luck.
Avatar f tn I was stupid and didn't take it for any sort of pain .. it's been a recreational thing. I haven't been on it for real long .. maybe a month and a half to 2 months max. I eventually got up to taking 12 of the 10/325 a day. Usually 4 at a time every 3-4 hours. I didn't take them every single day, but it was usually every other day to every 2 days. I have been HATING the way that I've been feeling afterwards when I wasn't taking them, so I decided to just stop cold turkey.
Avatar f tn I'm taking .25 mgs daily. I've asked, posted, and read, but haven't recieved much real life experience from suboxone "jumping" at this low of a dose. ANYONE? Is it still going to be horrid, not so bad, etc???? How long will it last? I know 'everyone's different, I'm just looking for others' real life experiences. My Dr. is ready for me to "jump" but is also being patient.
Avatar f tn Finally, for chronic pain, a long-acting opioid along with a breakthrough dose may be more appropriate. This prevents the highs and lows in dose levels one gets when taking a whopper 30mg oxycodone pill, helps with pain control during sleep, and should help retard opioid tolerance. Finally, the fear of pain has been known to boost actual pain perception. Attitude counts for much with chronic pain, so seek the help of your pain manager. Best wishes with your upcoming procedure.
Avatar n tn Lyrica is often RX for neuropathic pain - which covers a wide variety of pain producing conditions but not all. Gabapentin is similar to Lyrica but less costly. I could list other meds but again it's dependent on the type of pain. Opiates can be addictive - but the numbers are very small. The media would like to to believe that if you take an opiate you'll surely become an addict.
Avatar f tn In my line of work benzos are huge. As a recreational drug I've never been a fan. Tried the Ativan to see if I could stop with the restless legs. No good so that's ruled out. Guess I'm gonna be awake a lot the next few days. BUT not on meds! Yay! Thanks!
Avatar n tn Along with that I have burning pains in my feet and possible rls so I take Gabapentin for that and it helps a lot, I switch between Gabapentin and Lyrica. I also take Cymbalta in the morning 60mg. It is for deppression but also helps pain. I lost 30lbs for the first year on Cymbalta but the weight loss stopped after the 1st year. I just really had no appetite. I really liked the weight loss. Well this question is about Vicoprofen.
Avatar f tn I had a lot of relief with gabapentin. The neurologist prescribed it to me and I started off with a low dose (100 mg) per day. The maximum benefit, for me, was when I took 300 mg 4 times per day. One in the morning, at lunch, around 6 pm, and right before bed. It took the itching away for a good while (at least 6 months). I'm not sure if I built a tolerance to the drug but, I've read that the most benefit is experienced at some point and then it tapers off.
Avatar f tn drives me nutty, I was on Gabapentin for that but I am considering trying a migraine preventer. I don't see a headache specialist (I don't think we have them here) but I do see a neurologist who thinks I have two problems, migraine and have had an episode of Transverse Myelitis. I get confused as to which symptom is what or if I am having another episode of TM. That's why I asked about the burning sensations and how long your headache stuff lasts.
Avatar m tn The Medrol dose-pak can cause gawdawful anxiety! I was prescribed a dose-pak after my spinal surgery, and between the IV steroids that they bolused in after the surgery and the Medrol-pak I developed steroid psychoses. I was a MESS, to put it mildly! I couldn't sit still! I couldn't fall asleep, and when I did, I had HORRIBLE nightmares, I'd dream that demons were chasing me and I'd wake up exhausted from being strung out all night in my sleep!
Avatar n tn Five milligram oxycodone are safe and effective and come in a small enough dose that you can take an effective dose without getting groggy. Both of the oxy drugs have no other component to foul the waters.
544292 tn?1268886268 The length of time withdrawal symptoms occur can range from a couple of days to weeks depending on how high your dose was and how long you were on the drug. Withdrawal symptoms can be reduced by discontinuing use of the drug slowly (i.e., gradually reducing the daily dose). Tramadol is more complex than other opiate and opiate-like medications because it also appears to have actions on the GABAergic, noradrenergic, and serotonergic systems in the brain.
Avatar n tn Drug-induced rhinitis Several medications are implicated in rhinitis, including angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, reserpine, guanethidine, phentolamine, methyldopa, beta-blockers, chlorpromazine, gabapentin, penicillamine, aspirin, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, inhaled cocaine, exogenous estrogens, and oral contraceptives. Rhinitis medicamentosa represents a different etiology.
Avatar n tn I've read all about both drugs and know their similarities - I just don't know if starting the tramadol will help me get through this next week so that I can do my job and everything else that's required of me in my stressful life. I also have to have something to relieve the pain because it's just awful.
Avatar m tn Several of the petioners are respected pain specialists who prescribe long-term and high dose opioids.FDA regulates drug companies, not doctors. Like me, backpain1955 is brand new to this site. He signed up for the sole purpose of scaring patients on opioids so that they'll submit comments to FDA against the petition. His claim that the petition will lead to a ban on opioids is totally false. To understand the petition, please read:
Avatar n tn He recommended that seeing as though the Gabapentin worked a little perhaps a double dose to 600 mg three times a day would do it. I am to try this far a few weeks and if it doesn't work he wants me to return and talk about a different medication.
Avatar n tn I really feel the difference with the twice a day dose. He is having me cut down 10mg every week. I was fine until this week. Does anyone have any advice for me? I can not stand the weekness in my legs already and I am not finished tapering. I am really afraid of cutting down to once a day on!
Avatar f tn not so much for others. Just like any other drug out there. I do recommend trying this before something like gabapentin, whose adverse sequela are significant. But like anything in life, do your homework and YMMV will still apply. But have a frank discussion with a MD/DO you trust and respect and see if it can help you.
Avatar n tn 4 to answer the question straight up marajuana doesnt effect your blood sugar although the munchies you may get after can but to take care of that try to eat meat protein stuff without to much carbs or sugar (which yo hould be doing anyways) if you do happen to stumble apon a reeses or some kind of candy take a few units for it make sure its the right dose!
