    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 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.

    Gabapentin for Epilepsy

    I am still dosing and it will take about 1 month until I reach the target dose. As far as the compatibility is good – what diarrhea, gangrene, headaches, stomach problems, etc. concerns. Fortunately, that did not happen. But but dizziness, fatigue u. Drowsiness, aggressiveness. I have to do VERY concentrated my work and prefer to look twice before I put something as done. For now I like to confuse letters and have number-winners in it. As you say, I’m right next to the cap. I can not say that I’m gaining weight, but rather the opposite – I’m losing weight like a tear-off calendar. With the dosing is also stupid: beginning 1-0-0 to zeimal daily u. now, at the higher dose, again only 1-0-0 for 10 days. Therefore, I have slight withdrawal symptoms at noon. Unpleasant. There are also occasional seizures, but they do not get through properly. That’s really hard. I hope that once the dosing is over, the unpleasant side effects disappear and the seizures no longer occur so frequently. Despite everything, an improvement I could already fetstellen. With everything else, I say: Take it with humor, there you have to go through. I’m also fortunate enough to have knowledgeable colleagues.

    Gabapentin for Pain (chronic)

    I suffer from endometriosis, a benign but very painful gynecological condition in which adhesions in the abdomen cause permanent pain. I am therefore treated as a chronic pain patient. Among other preparations u.a. Targin, a prolonged-release opiate (evenly dispensing), received gabapentin in a dosage of 3x 100mg per day, which I tolerated well. Gapapentin was increased to 3 x 300mg when the pain pattern changed. Already in the intermediate dosing of 3 x 200mg side effects arose, which intensified with final dosage of 3 x 300mg. These are in outstanding form: loss of memory, I could not remember jobs completed in my job or things that my partner told me the day before. I could have taken an oath to not have done this job or that my partner would never have said that. I had constant fatigue, headaches and was irritable, my partner said I was very aggressive. I had the worst nightmares in which I hyperventilated and screamed in my sleep. Even the wake-up phase lasted for seconds until I realized that my partner had woken me up and saved me from the dream. I had tachycardia, sweats and dread. Furthermore, a very distressing side effect is the loss of my orgasm ability with constant libido. Already after 2 days shutting down or stopping the medication with gabapentin, the side effects disappeared.
