Neurontin klonopin

Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin klonopin


Avatar n tn I would like information about the abuse of neurontin. I have a teen who has been experimenting with this drug and I am told it is now a popular street drug. I know it is not a narcotic, but what would be the effect on a person who it is not prescribed to.
Avatar m tn i have not done any oxy for about 10 days now but my anxiety has not even started to go away. i read a few times on this forum about people mentioning neurontin. i do have access to this (800mg tablets) but i havent tried it yet was hoping someone would have some more information on how this could help keep me off opiates?
Avatar n tn I'm afraid the Neurontin and Klonopin might mix together and make me feel awful, but the pharmacist said it would make me really sleepy. That's why the doctor gave it to me is because the RSD is so much more worse at night to help me sleep and to relax the leg. I thank you so very much for taking the time to write me back on this.... PS... Did you ever take the pill whole? IF so how did it make you feel? Thanks again....
1029865 tn?1252422138 I was taking 1 mg of xanax 3 times a day now i take 1200mg neurontin, 1mg klonopin, 20mg lexapro in the morning and 600mg neurontin, 1 mg klonopin in the eve... If I was you and you need it I would ask for it twice a day. Because that will wear off by the eve. I have major depression, general anxiety, panic disorder and social anxiety.
1134609 tn?1269275800 My psychiatrist and I have discussed weaning off of the Klonopin, or at least decreasing the dose. I am also on Neurontin, so we would like to know if that medication is enough to control the mania. Again, I take 1.5 mgs, split into .5 mg doses, three times a day. The tapering schedule we have come up with would involve reducing the overall dosage by 1/6th every few weeks; cutting one dose in half, starting with the noon dose. Is this a sound tapering schedule or do we need to go slower?
1134609 tn?1269275800 Well, I don't really have a great deal of depression when dealing with the Neurontin. The Neurontin/Klonopin combo can drag me out a bit, but I start tapering off of Klonopin next month. I am a rapid cycle BP2; the Lamictal helps out tremendously in that aspect. However, with the increase in Neurontin, I am generally having fewer mood swings and am a lot less anxious.
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 I've tried buspar( no help ) and take neurontin at night. Nothing helps like the klonopin when it comes to preventing the actual panic attacks. Am I doomed to this drug forever?
Avatar f tn And to the poster, she says it's okay to take with klonopin, if that's any help, since I'm on klonopin and asked her about that.
Avatar f tn Now on celexa(40mg) Buspar(20mg) and neurontin at night(600mg) I stayed on the klonopin until I was stable. My doctor added these drugs instead of adding the celexa to the klonopin because he hates benzos. I have to begin tapering off the klonopin and cannot use the water or valium transfer. What would be a good tapering schedule? Anyone know? I was going to try to drop an eighth of a mg every four days. Is this reasonable. I have to work so side-effects are not good.
Avatar n tn Thanks for the imput, but my Neurologist was the one who initially suggested to my Psychiatrist to continue the regimen of Klonopin, Neurontin and the anti-depressant- Celexa. Yes, I am familiar with mental wards because that is where I detoxed off the booze. You may want to read up on Klonopin as it is used for epilepsy and it does a very good job of it for me. The Neurontin definately affected my moods and I was on an extremly low dose of it. First of all, I am not in menopause! Hormones???
Avatar n tn Neurontin is actually an anticonvulsive drug, but it is used for anxiety. I have taken Xanax and Klonopin before. Am now taking Neurontin. Neurontin is by far the more friendly drug. The main side effects I have had are diarrhea, lethargy, and fluid retention. Now I only take it at bedtime and these problems have gone away. But if I had to take medication in the daytime, I would vote for Neurontin, hands down.
1474625 tn?1371100679 I've never even had problems with klonopin, xanax, or valium (I've taken all three, currently on klonopin for anxiety and rarely take it). I don't even drink alcohol. But for some reason I got into trouble with tramadol a long time ago and it is the only drug I've ever craved. If I had a shot of morphine and a handful of tramadol in front of me, i'd choose the tramadol, strangely.
372680 tn?1228165210 I've been taking neurontin for "peripheral neuropathy" for a year now, but one of the side effects is "mild confusion" which basically makes me lose focus. I just saw my neurologist again and we're now trying Lyrica, typically prescribed for fibromyalgia. I've only been on it two days, with a much lower dosage (was taking 1200mg gabapentin/day versus 75mg Lyrica once at night!) and much much much better results (I only take one or two 300mg gapabentins a day).
Avatar n tn This Gaba thing really has me wondering if I should not just get a bottle of Gaba and take just that after I taper off Klonopin....and not use the neurontin or the other drugs...I do see a doctor tomorrow. They all like the pills rather than the amino acids and minerals and herbal stuff it seems.
1134609 tn?1269275800 I am essentially on the same meds I was when life was really hard (Neurontin, Klonopin) but the Lamictal was the one that turned me around. I know that the Klonopin makes the depression worse, as I have stated, but the Neurontin does the same thing. The Neurontin is so quick acting, it drags my mood down quickly when I'm already depressed. The other day, my central nervous system was so depressed that I actually started nodding off on the couch at noon; I couldn't keep my eyes open.
1134609 tn?1269275800 I woke up feeling pretty bummed this morning; an Ativan/Klonopin/Neurontin/Nicotine hangover. But, I took my morning meds and I feel better, I don't know how much I'll get in terms of 'data' with the Neurontin today as I took an Ativan last night. But, we'll see what happens. If it starts to mess with me, I'm coming down to 900mgs. NO MORE JACKING IT UP: DECREASING AND ADUSTING WORKS FINE.
352941 tn?1197499422 ) I went to my psychiatrist this morning because the Neurontin wasn't working. So he prescribed me Klonopin. I am now taking the Celexa and Klonopin. I have severe agoraphobia, emetophobia (fear of vomiting), anxiety and horrible panic attacks. My husbands leaving the Army and we are moving back home on Sunday, which is a 13 hour drive. After extensive research on Klonopin, I have found nothing but bad reviews on it from other people who have taken it.
Avatar n tn I know I was becoming intolerant to the Xanax because it wasn't working well and I felt like I needed to take more, however the most I would ever take is 0.25mg a day. The Klonopin is temporary until I can get my Neurontin to a level where it's effective. Thanks for all the replies!
1438550 tn?1283977758 after a few months of them getting worse, he also placed him on Klonopin, because it's a longer acting anxiety med! Husband was told he could take them both together, and to save the xanax for an immediate onset of panic that the Klonopin couldn't handle...which worked out fine. Now, all this time, we had been waiting on SSI, disability & a Medicare physician... we found one which would take him for both the pain AND the regular medical issues like GERD, cholesterol, etc....
Avatar m tn My dr. told me that Lyrica is more widely used for anxiety than Neurontin. Neurontin is used for major depressive order off label. Lyrica is really effective for GAD.
Avatar m tn I probably would still be on methadone today but i got kicked out because I was prescribed and still am to klonopin and when i started the clinic they didn't have rules against benzo's as long as they were counted out at each counseling session, but then three years later they expect me to just abruptly quit, how nice of them.
Avatar n tn I am scared. I was taken off prozac 8 months ago. I used to take klonopin and I wanted to quit it so they gave me prozac to replace it. I was taken off because I seemed to have become toxic. My head Is totally rigid and my jaw is real tight. My doctor said I should take this unique opportunity to let myself heal. Well, now they are putting me back on klonopin to relax me and it isn't working very well. Plus I just want to heal and I am scared of klonopin withdrawal again.
Avatar m tn Does anyone have any experience with klonopin for nerve pain, I see that along with its anti-anxiety properties that it also has neurological effects towards pain control. Ive had issues in the past with opiates but benzo's have nether been my thing, they usually just made me tired if I took too much and that was only a few times. I was constantly on opiates of one kind or another and was always to affraid of mixing the two for fear of overdosing.
Avatar n tn So, listen to Milo on the subject of tapering off the Klonopin. I'm a bit curious about how Klonopin works as a pain reliever for you. It must relieve the actual condition causing the pain, as opposed to what a narcotic pain killer would do. Good luck to you.
Avatar f tn If I had my way I would just stay on the Klonopin rather then add Neurontin and Celexa. 2 mgs a day worked great with no side effects. I am down to .75 mgs and I have been going really slow. A few sleep problems, but no return of the panic attacks. Good luck everyone. Abby, you have to remember that some meds a problems for some people, but return others to a normal life. Take it easy on others especially when they need support and understanding.
Avatar m tn In a nut shell I with Detoxed off of 5-6 years use of Klonopin. About 4mg to 8mg's of K, give or take. Was horrible after the detox as they did it in about 5 days. Then went to rehab and was given Valium for about a week and was back to normal. After the Valium taper I was a basket case. Horrible anxiety, twitching, CNS stimulation overload etc. Well it has been about 6 months. Have not take one benzo or drank any alcohol. Things were ok and manageable. Some days better then other.
Avatar n tn Hi, I am on klonopin 0.25 mg twice a day for a buldging disc in my neck in the c5-c6 area and also for an imflammed nerve on the c 7. I will be having an outpatient surgical procedure this Thursday as I was in the hospital last week. I am preparing to get off klonopin as my Dr prescribed neorontin for me 100mg 3 times a day. How Would I taper off the klonopin? I am also on Dilantin as a prevention of seazures 230mg a day. 100 mg in the morning, 130 mg at night. All help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn He put me on Buspar help and neurontin at night. I think just the Celexa and Klonopin will do less damage to my liver than all these other things. My old Doc used to say "if it ain't broke don't fix it. The Klonopin makes me feel normal.
