Gabapentin side effects for dogs

Common Questions and Answers about Gabapentin side effects for dogs


Avatar n tn While you have them on the phone ask them about what to watch for as far as side effects go. I gave my Koenig the liquid form twice daily and it worked great for him during his last year as far as pain. Best of wishes.
Avatar f tn I am so sick of the false sense of well being and the apathy vicodin addiction has caused in my life. Seems there is a LOT of side effects for many users of gabapentin so aftraid of doubling the misery. Some people have offered me ultram but I have heard horror stories of getting off that if I were to start using it instead of vicodin. I hope I can get clean and stay off the pain relievers...I do not even want to see the doctor at least not yet.I know he uses suboxene (sp?
Avatar m tn What you describe is not a side effect of gabapentin. They contraindicate its use in dogs that have kidney deficits, but the only side effects are vomiting, depression, excessive sleepiness and loss of balance. None of the other medications should cause otic issues either, especially since he's not new to taking them. It sounds like your dog has possibly developed otitis externa on top of whatever he's taking the gabapentin and other medications for.
Avatar m tn because those side effects indicate too much is in their I said it took 3 years for her to get those effects and it was because her high levels.her effects are no control of her rear legs.sleeps all the time,and no motivation.hope this helps someone.
335728 tn?1331418012 I can honestly say I haven't hardly shed a tear (except at a funeral) for about 6 years since I have been on Citalopram and Elavil. The side effects of this Gabapentin apparently can be thoughts of suicide, changes in behavior, depression, aggravation...sounds familiar doesn't it? Has anyone else had to deal with this once they reached their prescribed amount? This is terrible!
1916673 tn?1420236870 You might also want to think about adding some probiotics (there are several specially formulated for dogs with kidney disease). It is debatable whether probiotics succeed, but there have been some positive feedback from owners. Others suggest the good bacteria cannot survive beyond the stomach, which makes it pointless ... but I'm not entirely convinced. And ... Just in case you haven't read it, here's a link to my article on diet and kidney disease in dogs ... http://www.infobarrel.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar f tn I am taking 15MG of long acting oxys for my knee but when I have to walk it does not help too much and I have to spend the rest of the day with my knee burning and trying just to get it comfortable which is pretty much useless.
4202953 tn?1377187106 But I managed to shower and do my hair and make up! I'm so ready for this to be over. But we all know its not that easy. Good luck to you! Stay strong and never forget how crappy you feel right now!
Avatar f tn Hi! I have a JRT/Terrier mix, male who is deaf. He is a rescue. 3-days after I brought him home he had his first seizure with me. I suspect he has had them for years but no one was around or cared. The vet started him on Zonithamide (sp). I ruled out phenobarb due to the kidney/liver issues it can cause. I researched like a crazy woman & found that a medication I take for nerve damage is also used for epilepsy. My little fella weighs about 18-lbs.
Avatar m tn My dog is on tramadol, and gabapentin (the sudden jump may be like a pinched nerve). Rimadyl was given for a few days and then i chose not to give due to the intense side effects especially on westies breed is predisposed to liver issues. There are a few times the jumping thing happens - i am hoping this can be resolved with gabapentin or methocarbomol. I hope this is not start of IVDD. Pharma: Tramadol + gabapentin Nutraceuticals: Dasaquin + vetridisc for back pain Hope this helps.
Avatar m tn and sorry for my bad english For about 15 days I see 3 spots in my vision, on the left side of my right eye. It started as a shining L-shaped spot and I was able to see it with my eyes open or closed, it was like a patch of sunlight, the same as when we see the sun and after that remains a "shining mark" that reverses the colors, but in my case never left.
1175033 tn?1492204828 Not very many good docs out there to help- especially after diagnosis. Trial n error n a lot of crappy meds with crappy side effects. Also, for me, cardiac rehab n other things... Salt tablets, h2o pushing, elevated bed, waist high rx compression stockings...... On n on n on... I've been sick like this for 2 years, no ms, no lyme disease, no other anything-- but I do suffer from migraines with visual over stimulation, dizziness, no pain at times, sometimes weird pains, every day for 2 yrs.
Avatar n tn He also suffers from noise anxiety and becomes extremely destructive ( tearing house apart behavior)around loud noises(fireworks, gunshots,thunder etc). He has been taking Gabapentin and Fluoxetine for the noise anxiety for 1.5 years. We have moved him into a secure safe room and that limits the destruction. I'm looking for any advice on other things that I could do to stop the seizures. Since I started the meds , 4 days ago he is occasionally weak in the rear legs .
Avatar m tn I'm sorry for your loss, sometimes I tear up just thinking about whats coming eventually.But for now I want to do anything I can to help her.The vet had her on gabapentin 2 times a day. Just made her lay around all day sleeping,no energy. they cut dose in half and started the jerking movements. trying prednisolone,not twitching but everything else is worse. throwing up,laying around. just looks like she is miserable.Weaning her off.
996946 tn?1503252712 My vet nixed the pet chiropractor because of the nerve and spinal chord condition.
Avatar f tn I took gabapentin for years, for both restless leg syndrome and some relief from nerve pain. A year or so ago, my Sports and Spine medicine doc suggested I switch to Lyrica, as it is more powerful, you take lower doses, and clears out of your system better than gabapenting does. I was taking 800 or 900 mg. of gabapentin a day, sometimes more. I did get used to it after a while, so that it didn't make me drowsy, by the way. I switched to 50 mg.
847512 tn?1272570662 It is odd how some meds work for some and not others like Carolyn and the did nothing for me but cause side effects.....
Avatar m tn 30 am until I get up because I can't stand it anymore. The. Side effects for me have been great on our scale. My system is very sensitive and there has been zero nausea or stomach issues at all which is number 1 for me. Next I feel like I have a new outlook on life with a pep in my step but not like speedy or anything like that. It actually feels like a very soft euphoria if you will. No teeth grinding which is #2 for me. Also every so often you may have a.

198419 tn?1360245956 I'm off to the neuro's office Thursday to pick up the lab slip for my liver function tests, thyroid, etc. I've been on Rebif for 8 weeks now. I make sure I take some Ibuprofen before my injection at bedtime, or I wake up in the night feeling absolutely shi**y. The only other side effects are 2 " red blotches at injection sites for a week or so after. At least they don't hurt or anything.
Avatar m tn Oh, sounds horrible, poor thing. You may not have options but I am looking. Is this near you? http://www.prairieanimalhospitalsc.
Avatar f tn The doctors ask me why I quit taking the hydrocodone. I'm trying the Gabapentin 100mg again twice a day instead of 3 times. Maybe I won't get the side effects. I just pray I get by without the pain pills. What do y'all do for chronic pain?
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.
544292 tn?1268886268 Not my fault that I had to snicker at the last line there because every time I talked to my Doctors (plural) about medications and side effects they told me that Tramadol was NOT the problem. Then there was usually another drug put on top of that Tramadol. And they told me to take more. I always thought it was the other drug, not the Tramadol. Yeah. I was wrong. It makes me very angry that these Doctors know and aren't telling people. I don't believe that they are ignorant.
Avatar f tn Now you're using gabapentin, with no pain relief and bad side effects. Is the Xyrem used because of the side effects of gabapentin? Who is the genius behind this treatment plan? Lyrica (pregabalin) is similar in action to gabapentin, and a newer drug with less dose requirement (and theoretically, less side effects), and greater effectiveness. However, it is still a new drug and there is no generic form available (for another few years).
Avatar n tn So far so good with the bad side effects that can result from being the high powered meds she's been on, so i AM concerned about what it may be doing to her liver. So far, she hasn't had any "black" colored stools, nor vomited at all since the Aug.22nd surgery..i'm really amazed that she hasn't (knock on wood). She's still eating and drinking well which is a good thing.
Avatar f tn Hello, I had to put down my 10 year old Yorkie last night and it was the worst experience of my life. I have a question about Pallidia, oral chemo for mast cell tumors, and its effects on the kidneys. I started Ruby on Palladia and when I went back for her two week check up her kidney values were a little elevated, nothing alarming. The Palladia was working. We had an appointment set up for 4 weeks after 3 doses weekly of Palladia.
