    Gabapentin for Rls

    Obtained by the neurologist Gabapentin against my RLS (light form) prescribed mainly to get a good night’s sleep. Since gabapentin is a centrally acting agent, the associated side effects such as fatigue and difficulty concentrating, in addition to increased appetite and resulting weight gain, that’s actually the problem. Despite evening dosing of 100mg, the following day is very slow / sluggish. One has the feeling, mentally and physically, to drive with the handbrake on. The RLS symptoms are of course also muted. I will talk again with my neurologist about alternatives.

    Gabapentin for High blood pressure; Rls; Polyneuropathie

    Since I take so many different medications, I can not describe the effect exactly. All I can say is that in the morning, in the evening or at night, I have constant tingling in both feet, burning in my legs, cramps in my calves, toes, feet. I can sleep about 3-4 hours at night, unfortunately not possible for a long time and this is also noticeable on my nervous system. Unfortunately, the doctors have tried everything, but no success. Sometimes it is unbearable.

    Side effects: Sleeping problems

    Gabapentin for High blood pressure; Rls; Pain (chronic)

    For more than four years I suffer from chronic back and joint pain. It is thought that I suffer from fibromyalgia, because my x-rays show only signs of aging and mild osteoporosis. I have consulted tens of doctors. And I feel like the conceited patient. But my pain has been there for years! Now I have received Novaminsulfone. The drug helps but only briefly. It causes difficulty falling asleep, diarrhea, twitching, and irritability. For a while I got tilidine. That made me addicted, with the result that I went to a clinic for four weeks for withdrawal. I would like a strong, more effective remedy without the sch … side effects and no consequences of dependence.
