    Gabapentin for Borreliose; Neuropathy

    because I was prescribed this drug too high doses, I got syncopal attacks. I was about 8 times a day unconscious, had memory and memory disorders and doctors told me, my attacks were very life-threatening!

    Gabapentin for Neuropathy

    The sole use of gabapentin after the second operation (middle-hand fracture on the right with postoperative chronic neuropathic pain), initially high-dose at that time, caused me great difficulties. I got severe acne, flooded and was restricted in the reaction, the ability to think and to remember. Likewise, the rather rare but very unpleasant microsleep occurred to me. Then I got Targin prescribed to greatly reduce gabapentin. I’m fine with it, the pain is almost gone. From the prognosis, I try to reduce further, of withdrawal symptoms that affect me, I can not report.

    Gabapentin for Neuropathy

    The drug almost did not work for me. Started with 1X in the evening 100 mg. Then increased to 3 X 100 mg. I had extreme muscle pain in my calves and joint pain in my legs as a side effect. Lastly, backache. I felt like an old man !! Have slowly dropped off again. Side effects were noticeable and fast. Never again this drug. If that is all that modern medicine has to offer, then good night !! Because rather burning soles. Maybe I will find another medicine.

    Gabapentin for Neuropathy

    I have been suffering from uterine neuropathy for years and have been taking 2x150mg Lyrica for 4 years. Gabapentin did not help me. Because it is unfortunately a chronic disease, I know that I can not get rid of my complaints on the whole. Despite taking Lyrica I always have this tingling and hypersensitivity. I would like to know if anyone has experience with Normast (Palmitoylethanolamide)? It iwrd claims that this drug proves itself in the short.

    Side effects: Ineffectiveness

    Gabapentin for Neuropathy

    The side effects with me by taking only 1x, then 2x and finally 3x a day. It went with dizziness, then I got my everyday life not regulated, the daily routines I could not coordinate. Dry mouth, was next to the track, suddenly did not see the steps of the stairs and fell down. At night in bed, when I lay and closed my eyes, the bed turned and drove carousel with me. Speech difficulties, could not speak the simplest sentences. Then I was very depressed and aggressive. The next time I howled in a tour. I did not have anything to do with myself, I was no longer myself. I discontinued this medication gradually, as it had no effect whatsoever.

    Gabapentin for Neuropathy

    Have for the neuropahischen pain only Lyrica (300mg a day) get. Since I did not tolerate it (water on the face, weight gain, fatigue, nausea, depression) I switched to gabapentin (300mg per day) from the company Hexal. I should try it to see if the side effects diminish. The side effects (water, fatigue, weight gain) have eased slightly, but the pain (burning of the skin, tingling, rib pain) came back. After only 10 days I was again as a precaution to Lyrica 150mg (it should be the Mercedes in the drug group and is not happy to be prescribed by the doctor, because it is so expensive / Gabapentin is more of the VW Golf). Now you have to see how high the dose of gabapentin has to be to get the same result as with Lyrica (side effects included !!!). So!!! Gabapentin I can be prescribed high doses (up to 3600mg per day) and the side effects, such as Lyrica, cause. A difference exists only in the active substance range.
