Neurontin overdose symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Neurontin overdose symptoms


Avatar m tn Well this is just hearsay I suppose since I havnt tried to confirm this myself, but I was actually told by one doctor that they originally used neurontin to help latestage AIDS patients that were about to die to help deal with there symptoms such as pain and mainly anxiety knowing that it would make them feel better in the interim. But did not intitally consider giving it as widely to the mainstream poulations because of its adverse effects.

Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar n tn so you are familiar with neurontin?
Avatar n tn Peroxidine is another important B vitamin but do not overdose; it can produce exactly the same symptoms with too much or too little. You may need a thorough lab workup. Anti-neuronal antibodies, diabetes or pre-diabetes, gluten insensitivity, immunoglobulin profile, thyroid (look at the sensory neuropathy suggestions at Good luck! Don't forget B-12 (although once you start taking it, the supplements will hide any deficiency you could have now).
Avatar n tn if i quit cold turkey and just take the gabapentin (neurontin) will that be enough to help with withdrawals? or should i taper myself down on the vicodin and xanax a little bit, and then do the gaba therapy (i don't want to go in and have ANY doctor do anything)... help...?
195469 tn?1388326488 Sensory complaints occur in 20-50% of patients and are often the earliest symptoms of MS that bring the patient to the doctor. Symptoms such as disturbances in feeling in the extremities or in the trunk occur because sensory pathways in the spinal cord are impaired. These disturbances, commonly called paresthesias, include tingling, crawling sensations, tight-band feelings, and feelings of swelling.
Avatar m tn BUT I used it to help me with withdraw symptoms off methadone and it is a medication that can be used for many things. It is not a narcotic, therefore much easier to taper down your dose. If you want to come down of your dose talk to doctor and tell the you want to do it as slowly as possible...
Avatar n tn Do you have any other symptoms? Please watch out for the side effects and let your doctor know imediately when you get one. Good luck!
1415174 tn?1453246703 It did work for a while then I would start up the same symptoms. After 10 years of trying to get diagnosed I sent myself to a psychiatrist. I really was at my wits end. I had lost a lot of weight at times from the vomiting. He said I had a migraine variant. I was put on Klonopin and all the symptoms stopped. I have only had one major bout with this two years ago after drinking two glasses of red wine on a trip to France. I know I should have but it was free and I did.
Avatar f tn I have been on Neurontin and Tramadol and Combunox..I am also going to start Physical Therapy. I have had more problems witht his biopsy than with initital issue which I think was a Post Viral Neuropathy...Any thoughts? Thank you..
Avatar f tn Is this dose I'm taking going to cause overdose and do y'all have any tips for withdrawal help? I can do this I know I can. Thank you for your help.
Avatar f tn I have seen my Neuurologist, Neurosurgen, OB/GYN, Internist Pain Management physician, and Psychiatrist all in an attempt to relieve this pain. I am on Cymbalta, Neurontin (gen. Gabapentin), Zanaflex, Synthroid, and Trazadone daily. I have also tried Lyraca for the pain and it did not work at all. The Neurontin helps a little ( bringing the pain from a 10 to a 9).
293157 tn?1285877039 I've been on Lyrica for 2 months now and it is really helping. I had the same symptoms as you had in the beginning. My neuro started me on 50mg and upped it to 100 per day the next week. I felt like I'd just come out of a bar feeling too. You will get adjusted to it in a few weeks, but please talk to the pharmacist or your doctor about the drug interactions with Clon. It could be interacting and really enhancing your symptoms.
Avatar f tn Lacking the reputation of heroin, many youths and novice opiate drug users engage in oxycodone abuse without understanding the consequences associated with its abuse, such as a heroin-like addiction potential and the threat of a fatal overdose. Using Percocets can cause nausea, weakness and slowed breathing. Percocets can cause impotence, enlarged prostate, and decreased testosterone secretion, thus decrease sex drive.

438383 tn?1204667562 A popular drug for the use of nerve pain is Neurontin. I was on Neurontin for the pain in my heels and legs however the side effects for me outweighed the pain relief. It, of course is not the same for everyone. It seems strange to me that any doctor would prescribe a narcotic to someone struggling with addiction. The doctor that prescribed these meds to you, is she just your pcp/gp or is she a specialist of some sort?
1349329 tn?1276988802 Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. A tramadol overdose can be fatal. Overdose symptoms of a tramadol overdose may include drowsiness, shallow breathing, slow heartbeat, extreme weakness, cold or clammy skin, feeling light-headed, fainting, or coma. Tramadol may be habit-forming and should be used only by the person it was prescribed for.
Avatar n tn and yet I continue to experience severe and bizarre symptoms that don't fit any category. I have even been told it is "all in my head" and Drs just throw up their arms and give up yet it is exscruciatingly painful 24/7 so how am I supposed to give up and go on with my life. To get to the point : MY symptoms are : Chronic pain which never abates . The pain seems to originate in my lower lumbar, mid back about the point of the beginning of the dorsal roots.
912156 tn?1242877984 stress, plus pain, can be what's making your BP too high. Your symptoms can all be from the paliperidone overdose. There's even a "black box warning" on that drug - which seem to center on cardiac and neural effects. But the post traumatic stress can be adding to some of that, as you are aware. In further researching that you do, I'd pay special attention to the parts about "alpha adrenergic receptors". Have you tried getting in touch with J & J, the manufacturer?
Avatar n tn The doctor's say TN, but also say that my symptoms aren't all typical. I have always had chronic sinus problems. I assumed genetic--my dad suffers same problem--unusual number of sinus infections--allergy symptoms, taking o-t-c sinus-meds almost daily to ward off headaches and runny nose new PCP in 1/01 recomended I see an ENT. ENT said my sinus were deformed, that was why I kept getting infections, the problem would escalate over time-recommended surgery.
Avatar n tn My psyciatrist has tried every ssri made, along with Buspirone, Neurontin, and Welbutrin. I've had heart tests, brain scans, and everything seems to be normal there. So I guess my main question is what can I do to make myself feel better?? Any other insight is much appreciated. My doctor says it's panic attacks but I have never heard of a panic attack lasting for a month or longer. I do have every symtom of a panic attack except for the hyperventilating.
Avatar f tn I don't want to tell my family and go to rehab not because I'm scared to get in trouble, but because I have lost a brother to a cocain overdose and it would break my family's heart to know another family member is addicted to drugs. The worst part now is that I am so depressed if I don't take any of these pills everyday, I'm not sure how to deal with my emotions without them anymore, I don't event deal with my emotions I just use these drugs to cope with them.
Avatar n tn I have gone off zyprexa x2 after taking it everyday. My does was only .5mg but it was strong enough for me to sleep for 10 1/2hrs so i only use it when i am quite sick. Anyways my symptoms from withdrawal were just insomnia for the 1st week or so and nothing that bothered me since i knew my body would adjust. I hope she has seen or spoken to her doctor and that that has helped her.
Avatar n tn Unfortunately the damage is done some time before the first symptoms of overdose appear. In a single day you should not take more than 4gm of paracetamol for this reason. If you are on panadeine or panadeine forte and are a poor metaboliser of codeine, then the 4gm limit is very easy to reach: it is 8 capsules. Dextropropoxyphene is another weak opioid, which is sold either as capadex which has a 325mg of paracetamol and 32.
680775 tn?1234875422 I just had a recent sciatic nerve injury and just got done taking prednisone and neurontin. For whatever reason the neurontin seems to be helping as well with the back. My plan for pain is to stick to anti-inflammatories if possible. Even though I've been on oxy's for several years steady, I don't feel I have a craving for them.
Avatar f tn He has a web sight with alot of information, It describes slot of my symptoms to a t. I wish I had found this information 7 years ago. I now find out the exercises that physical therapy had me do actually have made my condition spread. Instead of only having pain in uppper cervical and left hip, my whole trunk is full of trigger points. I have just been banned from my doctors office due to a negative urinalysis for hydrocodone that I take prn.
539750 tn?1226525277 I also have several of these syptoms anyways so I don't think I would be able to tell if I was having a reaction, unless it was a new someone else said. And who wants any new symptoms with all the ones we deal with everyday...! I am going to give it a try, cause I don't know what else I can do. My arm pain is so bad that I told my doctor I think of breaking it so I wouldn't have to use it for a while and I could give it a break from everyday life.
