    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!

    Gabapentin for Muscle cramps

    As for me with a severe form of muscle wasting and nerve damage are not insanely many things to choose from, Gabapentin was the attempt to curb the years of constant pain, so that I can keep my feet short but is more a little damper in the truest sense of the word also did not happen. A quarter of an hour after taking the spell starts and you realize that something is happening in the head. Continuous with all sorts of bearable and unbearable side effects, my life was now next to pain even after long-term side effects, when I take pills and what I can do before and after each. For me, the effects and side effects were out of proportion, so we decided to slowly lower the drug, which gave me even more side effects and withdrawal symptoms and was barely able to keep my eyes open for panic attacks, anxiety and nights of sleep. The stuff just scared me.

    Gabapentin for Pain (chronic)

    The buprenorphine patch 70μg / h worked well only at the beginning, after which I had to switch from the lower dose, to the highest, because nothing else worked more. Side effects: nervousness, restlessness, fatigue, dry mouth, slurred speech, trembling, loss of appetite, nervous discomfort, itching, bladder dysfunction, insomnia, feeling hot, sweating, dizziness, low blood pressure, respiratory suppression, nausea and sweating. The same side effects also apply to the drug Temgesic forte 0.4mg. Gabapentin 800 and its side effects: drowsiness, fatigue, dizziness, weight gain, abnormal sensation and tingling, speech disorders, thought disorders, memory disorders, dry mouth, depressive moods, confusion, mood swings, erectile dysfunction, impotence, itchy skin, sensory disturbances, respiratory distress. Tilidine 100 and its side effects: Dizziness, tiredness, drowsiness, increased sweating and drug dependence. Summary: I have been a chronic pain patient for many years and have some medications and pain therapies behind me but by and large I would say that especially for chronic pain, the drug combination, from Tilidine100 plus Ibu800 was the best and also with very few side effects Although you have the Tilidin, a phase of familiarization but this is what you have in almost every other pain medication, on this level as well. With the drug buprenorphine against against you always have the feeling that it does not work, until the time when you have taken too much of it, because even a slight overdose takes a huge revenge or at the same time takes the gabapentin, one should but only if you do not think anything about sex anyway, otherwise there will not be much going on in the station wagon, buprenorphine plus gabapentin.

    Gabapentin for Polyneuropathie

    With 3 x 900 a day, the sensations of pain are gone. All side effects are considered the lesser evil against the pain. Annoying is the permanent ear noise. The drawbacks: thinking, concentration, speaking, memory, writing, reading are significant. Being unable to sleep, being permanently tired, gives you the rest. I have been healing for 2 years now. My body functions come back. I will be cured in a year and now already let the drug creep out carefully.

    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.
