    Gabapentin for Pain (joint); Pain (back); Neuralgia

    I have had coccyxitis for half a year now. After the orthopedist had injected me three times specifically to the relevant site, and I had felt no improvement, I was referred to the pain therapist. It had already come in the past three years at intervals of about 1/2 year repeatedly to a coccyx inflammation, which, however, with appropriate syringes (1-2 syringes) administered by the orthopedist had passed again. But this time it was so bad that when I was sitting I only had a lot of pain, which went down to the buttocks and usually there was still a burning pain. Television was only possible in the lying, and then laterally best. I had to delete my beloved cycling altogether. Driving was also torture. The pain therapist also tried it with deliberately placed syringes, and in addition he prescribed me on my first visit Katadolon S long, of which I should take 1 whole tabl. It showed no effect for the first 14 days. On my next visit after 2 weeks, I got some injections again, but this time below. The doctor dismissed me again with the recommendation to take the Katadolon S long every evening. Two weeks later I had to tell the doctor that the treatment had been as good as unsuccessful again. Only great fatigue had invaded me after taking Katadolon, so I fell asleep regularly in the TV chair shortly thereafter. Probably that was too much, 1 whole tabl. Katadolon and 1 tabl. Gabapentin. For this I have to mention that for all my medications I still take gabapentin 300 three times a day because of my occipital neuralgia and joint and back pain. Now I have the doctor prescribed the following medication, I call it here drug cocktail: morning: Blutdrucktabl., Gabapentin, 1/2 Tabl. Tramagit 100 retard at noon: Gabapentin, 1/2 Tabl.Katadolon S long evenings: gabapentin, 1/2 tabl Tramagit 100 retard at bedtime: Doxepin 25 mg after 3 weeks Ingestion of this cocktail: improvement in sight, but not yet well, can cycle again, but then has to take a whole pill of tramagit in the evening. (The doctor has allowed me) The greatest effect, I think, comes from this special composition, especially the addition of Tramagit. At most I feel a slight tiredness, which, however, only noticeable in the evening. In 4 weeks now I have an appointment with the pain therapist again. Most of my hope is Tramagit. It is important in a tailbone ignition, so I have found that you always sit very soft. I take my special soft pillow everywhere. Summary: In gabapentin no side effects except increased appetite and thereby gaining weight, therefore eat consciously! 1 whole tablet Katadolon S long: great tiredness, possibly because taken at the same time with gabapentin, 1/2 tabl. Katadolon S long at noon is okay. Tramagit 100 mg retard twice daily 1/2 tablet: No side effects Doxepin 25: 1 tablet taken at bedtime, side effects can not be assessed. Fall asleep quickly

    Side effects: Appetite increase; Fatigue

    Gabapentin for Neuralgia; Pain (chronic)

    It all started with a hearing loss. As the hearing loss was treated so far, my upper jaw suddenly began to hurt. Besides, I could not control my eyes anymore. I was then hospitalized for 14 days in the hospital and adjusted to Gapabentin and Mirtazapine. In the beginning it helped me very well. After about 6 months, the first side effects occurred. These were especially diarrhea and vomiting. I was in bed almost every 14 days with an upset stomach and had cramps and diarrhea. We searched the internet for a better drug. As we discovered on a forum the Mediament Lyrica supposedly well tolerated. I then had the medication prescribed by my neurologist. Since then I take 150 mg Lyrica 3 times a day for about 1 year. I have not regretted the change since then I feel much better and almost no side effects.

    Side effects: Diarrhea; Vomit

    Gabapentin for Depression; Disc prolapse; Neuralgia; Pain (chronic)

    Since I take Norspan our sexual life is currently disturbed. But thanks to Norspan, I have been able to stop taking other medications and maybe save my liver. Normally we had sex 1-2 times a day. Since the Norspan there was not anything else but today and it was weird. He became stiff, but that’s about it. The last and the back (that is the other pain) and the legs felt numb at exertion (after the effort immediately back to normal) Does anyone know the problem? does that go away with time? 2nd problem I have absolutely no appetite and if my wife says let’s eat something, comes up against the food again. Before I wanted to make diet and it was difficult, but no smoker I weigh 90 kg and have to take weight off the back as I had increased thanks to cortisone. Currently, however, I am afraid, because I can eat real kiein eat more and I have to bite every bit of pure. This is not exactly pleasant, because I wieß that I have to eat, but despite normal taste only fies oist.

    Side effects: Deafness feelings; Anorexia

    Gabapentin for Shingles; Neuralgia

    In the first 3 weeks: drowsiness, dizziness, rapid heartbeat, listlessness, weakness, hardly any strength left to go out, sociophobic attacks, depression, indifference, lack of concentration / memory disorders, word finding disorders. However, already after 5 days, an effect already occurred! After the first 3 weeks to date – Depressive phases, weight gain, aggression / irritability (threshold is very low), loss of libido, difficulty concentrating, word finding disorders. I’ve been taking gabapentin for 8 months now and it really helped alleviate my nervous pain! They are not completely gone, but really only discreetly there. Unfortunately, I’ve gained 5 kg, you have to pay attention to go to the sport and should omit chocolate / chips and sweets. I took 1200 – 1500 mg. Recently, I reduced to 500 mg and was able to lose 4 kg with sports and healthy diet again. I am currently switching to Lyrica, which helps me even better against the nerve pain. With Lyrica I am completely painless.

    1. Why Prednisolone (Cortisone)? ———————————- May 2006 I rode the mountain bike through the Sauerland, July 2006 in a wheelchair to the Kh. emergency department because of high inflammatory values in the blood. (BSG and CRP) Other symptoms: progressive pain, starting on both sides of the shoulder, further bilateral hips and later buttocks. Morning stiffness later in the day, then Kh. Emergency room because of high levels of inflammation in the blood. Diagnosis of the Kh. Wesel / NRW, Rheumatology: Polymyalgia Rheumatica. Therapy after KH discharge: Cortisone 40-0-10 mg / day. In addition omiprazole 0 – 0 – 20 mg. and calcium / D, 4 x 250 mg / day. After two years of therapy, my daily dose of prednisolone is still 6 mg. 2. Postzosteric Neuralgia —————————- In March 2008, I got a shingles on my head, which healed after ten days. The mentioned neuralgia remained behind. I have treated them with gabapentin 300-300-300-300 mg / daily and today 300-0-200-0 mg / daily. I did not have any complaints before starting this therapy. Only in the last few weeks there were occasionally dull eyes and light stomach pains. One week ago I stopped taking omeprazole and after that the symptoms subsided again. My finding, – prednisolone with omeprazole no side effect – prednisolone, omeprazole and gabapentin, visual disturbance and gastric distress – prednisolone with gabapentin no side effect

    Side effects: Stomach pain; Blurred vision
