    Gabapentin for Multiple sclerosis; Pain (acute)

    I’ve had Ms since 1991 and in recent years the pain in my feet and legs has become unbearable. Feeling like being trapped in a vise and someone keeps turning. Initially, gabapentin was quite severe (dizziness, fatigue, word problems). In the meantime I take 2×600 mg in the evening and if necessary also 1-2x 600mg during the day. I’m tired of gabapentin, but I still can not sleep. I’ve gained weight if I skip the medication (because I want to drive a car over longer distances, for example), then I can def. not sleep. Vermutl. slight withdrawal symptom. Sexual desire has also declined significantly – but could also be due to the disease. Still, I would recommend gabapentin for such pain. Better to take something for the pain than to torture yourself all day. Oh well, if I move after taking (walk around or brush), then it does not work. In the meantime, medication only works for me after three or more hours. Taking today for example at 10 pm I am still sitting here and we have 2 pm!

    I got this drug from my neurologist to treat right leg pain. This is due to a stroke. This dose of 3 times 300 mg a day. The success was zero after 1 month. But the side effect was impotence and incontinence. But can fall asleep well and must be woken in the morning, because otherwise I can always continue to sleep.

    Gabapentin for Pain (acute)

    At first, I did not notice that much pain relief. After a few weeks it was better. But then trembling came on to fall asleep from hands and feet. At some point, the lower part of my face and neck was full of acne pimples. I was not sure where it came from Pontius to Pilate until I read through the internet the side effects of gabapentin again and found out that it can also be caused by gabapentin. I have not been able to reach my neurologist yet. Will clarify. I really do not feel well with it. Am 60 and have a face like a crumb cake.

    Side effects: Deafness feelings; Tremble

    Gabapentin for Shingles; Pain (acute)

    My mother-in-law got the shingles in Janur 09. She got prescribed in hospital, because of the pain, Gabapentin. A few days later she had to vomit a lot, had constipation, itching, tiredness … so she felt really bad. Gradually she began to shiver, the nerves were almost damaged and had no strength in the legs. In between, she also began to tell things that happened 20 years ago or not at all. we were shocked she felt really bad, she could not hold a glass anymore. Could not walk anymore and no longer think clearly and has increased a lot. After all the examinations in the hospital, the doctors could not find anything, then we dropped gabapentin, and immediately my mother-in-law was much better and she complains of nothing. So we had a very bad experience with gabapentin.
