Neurontin euphoria

Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin euphoria


Avatar m tn Neurontin can be very dangerous. It was originally developed as an anti-convulsant/seisure medication that has now been applied to pain relief. People need to carefully research safe doses and possible side effects..the amounts a doctor is willing to prescribe usually far excedes safe amounts. I'm glad it helped you. Everyone wanting to use this drug must be cautious. It can actually cause people to go 'off the deep end' almost into psychosis. IF it works for you great.
Avatar f tn Anyone have experience with using neurontin for opiate w/ds? My dr. just prescribed me some. They're sitting at the pharmacy ready to pick up, just wondering. P.S. this is the same dr. that has been seeing me through a suboxone taper. I'm down to .25mg. and going to be "jumping" in about 3 wks. P.P.S. I've already got some supplies from the Thomas Recipe: multi-vitamin/mineral and potassium pills.
Avatar f tn Well I have tried all but not for more than a month. With Elavil I didn't like the way it made me feel. Neurontin and Trileptal I didn't take it long b/c I noticed nothing. I just started taking Lyrica 75mg 3x a day started about almost 2 weeks ago. I am confused b/c I know that Lyrica can cause some really big side effects and I can't tell if I am having w/d from detoxing off of fentanyl or is it Lyrica. I know it causes major weight gain and I don't need that.
5254643 tn?1365635349 I have an extreme pereferal neuropathy that Ive been taking opiates for 10 years. I stopped them and the pain is very extreme. I am now taking high dose of neurontin. I want off the drugs. Isnt there a surgry to stop th pain, If so how do I Get it.
237152 tn?1206654636 My pain doc says neurontin is a much safer drug than lyrica and wants me to stick to the neurontin.....lyrica does have a euphoria associted with it with use for some....especially at first....
605458 tn?1265086851 I definitely feel the symptoms of hypomania, physical restlessness, talkative, that sensation of being pulled forward, euphoria, etc. My psychiatrist said I could break this dose in half if I had to, which I am probably going to try. I am also taking Lithobid 900mg (recent labs good), Seroquel XR 600mg, Xanax prn at bedtime for insomnia. I also take a low dose of Neurontin/gabapentin and zonisamide for a nerve pain disorder. So I am on a mood stabillizer with the antidepressant.
Avatar n tn A third is usually added depending on the source of pain, such as if muscle spams that are contribute to the pain then a muscle relaxant may be ordered.... if it's neuropathic pain then a med that treats nerve pain such as Neurontin is added and so forth. However this pertains to Chronic Pain and not post-op pain.....two different animals....
Avatar n tn Some people only around 5% of users after taking very large doses feel euphoria and relaxation. Thats the only reason it is scheduled V drug. As long as you continue taking your prescribed amount you will be absolutely fine. What dpse are you on?
210982 tn?1280987495 it is a nerve blocker like neurontin but it is habit forming and not recomended for friend is addicted to it is the truth...does nothing for me except make me feel like a ton of bricks wet...hits her pleasure button and she loves it...everyone is different...
Avatar n tn I was taking 1 morning and 1 at night and then 2 morning and 2 night. The Euphoria stopped and the pain relief also stopped so I said forget it, no more of this evil drug. I have been off cold turkey now for 3-4 weeks now... But my back pain is still unbearable. Every day I was in a lot of pain and was taking 800 mg Advil and Robaxen Muscle Relaxer and Neurontin for burning in my feet. It was not touching my pain but I said OH well I will live with it as I refuse to become an addict again..
Avatar m tn and also similar to neurontin/tis the new neurontin so to speak/but with more side effects and more of a potential for abuse than neurontin// more of a stupor/euphoria associated with lyrica so it is abused but is not addictive physically///but the mental aspect of addiction is the tough is not recommended for an addict to use lyrica if they feel the urge to abuse it....listen to ur body..
897400 tn?1303332748 TENS unit, ETPS ( electrical trigger point stimulation, which usually works wonders ), self massage, neurontin, ibuprofen,etc...Nothing was helping and I waited for hours before taking the darvocet. The darvocet made me sick to my stomach just like all opiates do to me. And I hate the spacey feeling it causes. I know some people like that euphoria, but it makes me really uneasy. I'm bummed about not being able to control the pain.
Avatar n tn I ate a big meal and waited about 90 minutes until I took 2 of them. Then euphoria set in. I remember I was watching a repeat of The Practice and it was like the best show in the history of TV. I remember all of a sudden getting along with my mom and thinking she was my best friend. Everything was sooooooooo great. Then I got a little sick and ate a little something and took the next two. I then entered into the next phase which was zoning in and out of consciousness.
Avatar f tn I have fibromyalgia, and i am on suboxone and neurontin...which seem to help with my everyday pain...but does NOTHING for my flares, so i take prednisone for those special occasions... just because your insurance covers it, doesnt mean your doctor will accept it...there has been issues with this in the past, but it does seem to be getting better...
5802145 tn?1374558209 So, the point of this is to keep tabs on myself and the goals I have set for myself in trying to "control" my intake of my medication since I have been over using my pain medication. I am going to be completely honest with my feelings and actions, because if I am not honest, how else can I get help or get better at this. I have degenerative disk disease, bulging disks, and arthritis effecting every disk in my neck and also a couple in my lower back.
Avatar f tn I forgot, Neurontin caused the dizziness and double vision, too.
Avatar n tn Dear Vicki, "Classic mania", euphoria, expansive mood, racing thoughts, distractability and impulsive behavior is present in about 40-50% of all bipolar patients. Another 40% have mixed mania/depression. Her combination of Depakote and Ativan are appropriate to treat her manic symptoms but it is imperative that she is on an adequate dosage of the mood stabilizer (Depakote). However, her depressive symptoms are a concern.
Avatar f tn I have hand pain, muscle cramps in my legs that last for weeks, vertigo, lightheadness, drunken feeling without the euphoria, can't stand on one foot, or with my feet together, can't touch my nose with my eyes closed (I touch my forehead), my hands shake when I hold them out or try to touch something, feels like worms are crawling on the bottom of my feet, I stumble around unable to walk in a straight line and fall a LOT.
Avatar m tn To be honest I don't even like the way the vicoden makes me feel but i still take it if that makes sense. I mean yeah i take it for the euphoria but after that is over i just feel like crud. My question is this. My tolerance to klonopin was shot to hell because last month i ran myself two weeks short. I got them filled again 5 days ago. I really want to quit taking the vicoden. Even though I will run out i have plenty of money to get more but i don't want to do that.
7392085 tn?1390516427 See if your doctor can write you a prescription for some Requip for restlessness, Neurontin for anxiety and malaise, some Flexeril or Soma for a few weeks for muscle spasms and maybe some Seroquel low dose, for sleep. and Clonidine for the creepy-crawly feeling and control of blood pressure variations. It will make your withdrawals easier. Valerian and Magnesium is sometimes helpful remedies over the counter. The residual symptoms of insomnia and depression can last another few months.
Avatar f tn Just recently I took some and couldn't get euphoria feeling anymore so I kept taking them. So for 3 days I was taking 5 pills like twice a day with no effects. So I said okay now I definitely have to stop. (In the past I could go days without the drug) but this time after one day I had flu symptoms.....I was terrified. I didn't tell my husband I was going threw withdrawl. So he thinks it was the flu. I gave in and for more pills because it was unbearable. I made it two days.
Avatar m tn I was first put on Zoloft while I was inpatient for an eating disorder, but it didn't seem to do anything. Two months ago I was switched to Effexor 150mg/day, as well as Neurontin 900mg/day. I just recently got off the Neurontin, and a new psychiatrist suggested coming off the Effexor and taking Prozac instead. I decided against that and thought it best to not be on any medication.
608001 tn?1220389502 Besides relieving pain, Morphine's effects impair mental and physical performance, relieves fear and anxiety, and produces euphoria. Morphine's effects also decreases hunger, inhibits the cough reflex, produces constipation, and usually reduces the sex drive; in women it may interfere with the menstrual cycle. Morphine's euphoric effects can be highly addictive.
Avatar m tn You may be able to take neurontin for your sciatica. It is non addicting and works fairly well for nerve pain. In order to feel as least w/d as possible, you will have to taper very slowly. If your Rx is for 5mg tab it will be easy to adjust your taper dose. Make sure you are not on the ER tablet. Those are extended release and you won't be able to break them in 1/2. Can you tell us what strength you take, and when you take them?
Avatar n tn There are so many to consider- Trileptal, Lamictal, Tegretol, Topomax, Neurontin (I am told not as helpful as the other anticonvulsants) Sometimes mixed with antipsychotics- Zyprexa, Respirodal, Sometimes Abilify is given alone for BP, and a new one that I can't recall. I like Seroquel. The best combination is different for everyone. I did best on what I am on now, Lithobid and Seroquel.
Avatar m tn I'm thinking more and more about all my options. I'm currently going to PT, and have tried numerous drugs like Neurontin and other things. I've heard about trying a Chiropractor(sp?) but I've also heard it can go horribly wrong, which is the last thing I need. I've read horror stories about surgery to relieve this horrible pain, and good stories. Some articles by doctors said the success rate is around 95%, is that right?
1264863 tn?1391121793 it can cause problems with driving, other responsibilities, etc. (I end to feel really out of it on Neurontin. It's almost a high feeling, though not quite. More like I feel I'm in slow motion and I have trouble word finding, etc. When I first took it, I was still dealing with work and I could not have a conversation with my boss without sounding like an idiot. So I went off it.
382218 tn?1341185087 I am strongly leaning toward trying this drug for the pain in my hand which is driving me nuts. I am on the highest dose of Neurontin plus 75mg of Elavil at night, with minimal to moderate relief. When I asked my neuro about it last year, he just yes, he is familiar with it and yes, some of his patients are on it. He discouraged me from trying it pointing out that some of its side effects are already complaints of mine: fatigue, poor concentration, memory.
575863 tn?1218472613 Now, I'm not advocating the use or substituting of one illegal substance to attain another sort of euphoria, nor am I searching for another high. Indeed, I cannot imagine, nor would I want to imagine, being on a mescaline trip while WD'ing or in serious pain! Yet I desperately want to find something that can ease my daily pain levels, and have it not be opiates of any sort. Unfortunately, it seems that opiates are the only recourse when dealing with severe, chronic pain.
Avatar n tn I am curious what to expect from this withdrawal compared to tramadol (I was taking around 15 50mg pills a day of tram). DHC is definitely stronger than tram, I dont feel euphoria from tramadol anymore but I do with the DHC. However, the withdrawals from tramadol were really bad. Stomach issues for weeks, the severe anxiety only lasted maybe 24 hours or so but the depression lasted awhile. Insomnia took about 10 days to get over, which was probably the worst part.
