Neurontin and aleve

Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin and aleve


Avatar f tn She finally tried me on Baclofen, but I couldn't handle it. I am not on flexeril and neurontin and it has mad a difference. I absolutely cannot miss a dose but, my symptoms that she said the neurontin would take care of are still there and that is why I am wondering if I am on too low of a dose. My neuro and I seem to have communication issues. I'm debating on whether or not I should call her or my PCP or start looking going to another neuro or a MS specialist.
1415174 tn?1453246703 It is like an aura or wavy moving lines that last about a half hour and are in each eye. Has anyone had this from Neurontin (or Celebrex). I am tapering off of Neurontin for that reason and would like your opinion as to how to get off of it will less side effects. I am at 500mg now per day. I am now trying 100mg per week as I get ill feeling, insomnia and anxiety. What do you all normally do?
Avatar n tn I have read several articles that tell you about acetominophen products and liver toxicity. What pain medications, narcotic and nonnarcotic are the safest for people that have had liver tranplants, (10yrs ago) but have pain related to something such as spinal surgery. What about medications such as lyrica, or neurontin?
Avatar m tn , non-surgical) treatment options range from medications like Gabapentin (brand name Neurontin) or Lyrica, muscle relaxants, opioid pain medications, anti-inflammatories, and anti-depressants to various types of injections (epidural steroid injections, nerve blocks, radio frequency ablation, facet joint injections, trigger point injections). I would like to encourage you to see one of the doctors listed above to explore the treatment options deemed most effective for your pain.
Avatar f tn I have been to urgent care and returned to the dentist. She performed an xray and said the tooth is fine. I was first given Valium and Aleve for relief. The relief from this treatment last about 1 hour and the severe pain returned. I was then put on flexoril which takes the "edge" off for a couple of hours. I have switched to ibuprofen which has provided more relief than the Aleve. The dentist says that I have muscle spasms in my jaw and this should go away.
Avatar m tn Spinal stenosis can cause a lot of nerve pain (burning throughout the low back into the hips, pulsating throb and achiness in the low back and hips, shooting pain and pins and needles sensation that runs through the buttocks and hips and down one or both legs). Nerve pain is best treated with anti-convulsants and SNRI/SSRI anti-depressants. Neurontin (generic: Gabapentin) or Lyrica (generic: NA) and Cymbalta (generic: NA) are good medications to try to help with this pain.
Avatar n tn If you use Aleve be careful if you are on Neurontin because is a small amount of cases Aleve will interact with Neurontin and cause a 12 - 15% increase in the absorption of the Neurontin (I know this from first hand experience).
Avatar f tn Hi i also have maddening itches, i get it on my baxk and arms, and at times i just want to rip my skin right off, cool showers do work quite well.
4303120 tn?1352691798 for it and so now I only have part of my stomach and everything was re-routed and that is why I can't take NSAID meds, motrin based products and aspirin based products, they all cause bleeding which for me could be deadly. :( Not sure if I am just stuck in this spiraling rut or what.
Avatar m tn I currently tale neurontin, hydrocodone, serzone, effexor, flexiril, Albuterol, flow-vent, aleve lately my doctor has taken it more seriously and has orderd a bunch of tests. findings indicate: my thyriod is normal, liver normal, SEVERE sleep apnea (109 dist/hour and am on CPAP), *enlarged right ventricle, Pseudocoarctation of the Aorta* (diagonsed with CT scan with iodine), and Fybromyalgia (by my rheumitologist). In 2005 i had a serious staph infection under my RT kneecap.
Avatar n tn I got sick off of Methadose,had side effects from Fentanyl and Neurontin. Doctor keeps prescribing neurological medications to which I either have bad reactions or turn into a zombie. Thanks for the input, everyone.
Avatar m tn There are days my pain is unmanageable but it's usually no worse than when I was on Fentanyl and oxycodone, as well as Neurontin, Cymbalta and more. My pain doc at the time was not helpful in me coming off meds but I did get some great support here even though I wasn't an addict in the true sense of the word. I have lost most function in my left hand and my right hand isn't far behind. Good luck. It is doable, though challenging at times.
1794671 tn?1338798991 I don't understand why, well I understand that their pain works maybe for the listd medications that it is for but neurontin and tramadol and other meds didn't work for me as well as norco, and the other higher pain meds just made me feel loopy or didnt help at all, just raised my tolerance.
Avatar m tn This type of excruciating/nauseating pain that comes and goes and is felt along the left shoulder and arm can be due to angina. The pain usually starts with activity and is relieved by rest. Other possibilities are rotator cuff injury, arthritis and bursitis. Please discuss with your doctor immediately. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
772216 tn?1259276837 But I've also been on tylenol, ibuprofen, aleve, neurontin, vicodin, darvocet, percocet hydrocodone and tramadol none of which take the pain away anymore. It has progressively gotten worse. I eat a lot healthier than I used to and have cut sodas down to maybe 1-2 a week from the normal 4-6 a day. I will limit the sugar and salt but I don't think there is a way to completely take them out.
772216 tn?1259276837 But I've also been on tylenol, ibuprofen, aleve, neurontin, vicodin, darvocet, percocet hydrocodone and tramadol none of which take the pain away anymore. It has progressively gotten worse. I'm not sure if any those have aspirin in them though some of them had tylenol, I don't think we have aspirin either. My mom is on 2 different meds for her BP and HR, she has mitral valve prolapse. Hers is very well controlled.
Avatar f tn I take 600 mg in the morning, along with two OTC Aleve, and one Oxycodone and the sciatica pain is completely gone within an hour and doesn't come back until late afternoon. I admit, I am also on the Fentanyl patch but I have been taking Gabapentin well before I started the patch and I know it was very effective for my nerve pain prior to starting Fentanyl. Good luck to you. Surgery to be a last resort option.
Avatar n tn I am relieved and angry . My neurologist has me on neurontin for pain and it works like magic. I begged her for topamax after researching it for 2 minutes lol. at this pont in time I am not afraid of anything. Possible side effects don't scare me any more. weight gain does lol slight BDD going on also along with OCD and all the other initials out there. Talk to your Dr. but try anything once If it doesn't help you you can stop!
327385 tn?1378364331 my migraine was so sever i took aleve as that was only pain med in the house. i didnt have any side effect from the aleve and i take them now .. my question is my tumor was on my optic nerve and could that be a reason the topamax hurt my eye? topamax was the best seizure med i have taken and i really wana try it again.. i will ask my nero about this but dnt have an app for a couple months and wanted your opinions about this.
Avatar f tn One doctor told me I haveBack Pain with Sciatica, Hematuria and he went on im his notes I have MS and the MS is called Arthralgia and Muscle problem.Now another told me that Diagnostic were that he note Facet Arthrosis in the lower spine -L4-L5 and L5-SI and mild facet hypertrophy.But no significant disc bulge or protrusion is seen at any level. Disc space are well maintained. Now after my baby was born 2 month she came down with Baterial Meningitis after I stop breastfeeding expain that to me.
Avatar n tn gabapentin (Neurontin), Lyrica, and Cymbalta. This might give her some pain relief. The Cymbalta is also used for headache and neuropathic pain. This might be worth a try for your daughter. I hope she feels better soon!
Avatar n tn As I was getting better and ready to return to full duty, I was in a car accident and it put me back to square one. I am on Soma 3X a day, Neurontin 300mg 2X a day and Tylox 1 every 4 hours for pain. I have a TENS unit and a back brace which seem to help at times, but when the pain is at it's peak, nothing seems to help. My heating pad has become my best friend. I can't use ice, I've tried and it seems to really aggrivate the pain.
Avatar f tn I can tell he is having trouble dealing with this and advil and aleve are not helping at all. In his IOP classes they told him he probably shouldn't have pain this severe. Just wondering what to do. Is this normal?? He was doing up to 20 bags a day but was also on Suboxone in between so he wasn't using everyday. How long should we expect this to last. I can see him slipping into a depression about this too. Is there anything that helps these feelings?
Avatar f tn They ran a whole bunch of blood work to help determine the cause, but in the end they told me it was either idiopathic or hereditary (because my sister has similar symptoms). I also take Neurontin, and many other meds to treat the symptoms of SFN and my other ailments, including an anti-depressant, narcotic, muscle relaxer, beta-blocker, Aleve, and Alpha Lipoic Acid, if a doctor thinks it will help to relieve the symptoms.
Avatar n tn The dizziness resembled being carsick, with lightheadedness and occasional moments of nausea and feeling faint (but I never passed out). I had a CAT scan and blood work twice, and so far no diagnosis for the dizziness/fatigue. It got better for a few weeks but last week I began to have dizzy spells again, this time accompanied by maxillary sinus pressure. I had just switched allergy medications, from Nasonex to generic Flonase, right at the time my symptoms returned.
Avatar n tn I tried to search using those key words both on this site and elsewhere, but I want to find an article that my doctor will take seriously. If there are challenges that might be being missed in my routine screening of the thyroid, I want to address them. I am basically not functioning. The sweating has started again and also my movement is out of control. These things seem to be related to my thyroid replacement.

Avatar f tn We have been with the pain management doctor for just over a year now, but we are constantly fighting my husband's tolerance. My husband is a big guy and he has always been able to drink and take the strongest medication with no effect on his body what so ever.
544292 tn?1268886268 So I dug up some more info that I wanna share ... in case you are dying of curiousity.
