    Since 2006 I am suffering from tension and nerve pain in the left arm, in the left leg to both feet. When walking, I have the feeling as if I’m going on raw meat. In addition, I have strong muscle tension in the cervical and lumbar spine. I have already tried different treatments and medicines. Now I take Gabapentin 3 times a day for about 14 days. 300 mg. The success has so far failed, however, the side effects have promptly adjusted. I am constantly tired, listless, tingling in the legs, dizziness, constipation and potency disorders are announced. My quality of life is lowered by 50%. Since today I have withdrawn after Rücksrache with my doctor the drug.

    Gabapentin for Nerve damage

    The side effect of Palladone 16 mg is that I got constipation but it is half as bad. The gabapentin 300 mg is so with the side effect that I have a microsleep and sometimes a little bit dizzy and am also very tired.

    Gabapentin for Polyneuropathie

    I’ve been taking gabapentin for 1 year because of my polyneuropathy, which was probably due to breast cancer chemotherapy. The drug does not really fight the pain in my experience. That’s why I also take fentanyl. The side effects are chronic constipation and a fatigue that occurs bumpy. Very clearly felt was / is an extreme performance reduction. Gabapentin did not cause me to gain weight as it did with Lyrica. My blood pressure has dropped since taking it (110/70), sometimes the levels are even lower, then I get dizzy. It has also struck me that a lot of gear insecurity has set in recently.

    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.

    Gabapentin for Fibromyalgia

    The initial side effects from the higher dose of Targin (previously almost 1 year 20/10, 3 times a day) and the reduction to the half, as well as the additional administration of gabapentin (pregabalin) work much better and are much more tolerated by the stomach. The constipation has gone back very much … I rarely have constipation. The tiredness has gone back. Only the sleep and falling asleep situation has changed in the change of weather … but whether this is directly related to Targin or Gabapentin, I and my doctor can not really find out. However, then help for the night mostly Atosil drops (20 St.) then almost always works with falling asleep. However, the increased nocturnal waking up (ie above the normal rate) can not be completely eliminated. GErade in the many weather changes at the moment I have massive problems with it. Who else has a tip, come here. My pain therapist is grateful for any additional suggestions from sufferers and experts. The more input he gets, the better he can treat and hire FMS patients.

    Gabapentin for Pain (joint)

    Side effects: Constipation, tiredness, difficulty concentrating, sweating, depression. I take now 4x half a tablet of 20 mg oxycodone every 6 years for 6 months. Gabapentin 3x daily (morning, noon, evening). This combination works very well against my pain. I have osteoarthritis in the right elbow joint. As a side effect bothers me the most, that you needed more sleep and the concentration has decreased greatly. Forgetfulness also occurs more frequently in my life. Furthermore blockages and I have become more moody. I strongly believe that kidney and liver are severely affected by these drugs. Which Medikamt now causes something I do not know exactly. I think oxycodone will be more harmful as an opioid. If I miss a dose, then I get cravings, hour later stomach cramps, diarrhea, sweats and tremors.

    Gabapentin for Depression; Pain (chronic)

    Jurnistra as well as other morphine hpts has led to severe constipation in my life.I need to be very careful that I have regular bowel movements, otherwise it will be catastrophic. I was extremely sick with Gabapentin, I had confusion, increased anxiety, and uncontrolled, slurred speech, and these symptoms subsided after about 5 weeks. Sevredol works well and reliably unless I wait too long to use it on a pain burst. I have gained about 10 kilograms under the above mentioned therapy, although I can not say clearly which drug actually made it, as all were taken at about the same time.
