    The Arcoxia (90mg) I take once a day. In addition, in the morning a Targin 10 / 5mg and in the evening two Targin 10 / 5mg, 2400mg gabapentin and one omeprazole per day. The Arcoxia has an exhausting effect on me, to which I get from it arrhythmia (rumbling in the chest and the feeling that my heart stops the same), dizziness and Gedächnisstörungen. For me, it’s just an extra painkiller to get my hyperalgesia under control. In the combination, as described above, I still have moderate pain. For other patients this stuff seems to help, it does not help me without the extra medication !!!

    Side effects: Fatigue

    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 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 Pain (joint); Pain (back); Neuralgia

    I have had coccyxitis for half a year now. After the orthopedist had injected me three times specifically to the relevant site, and I had felt no improvement, I was referred to the pain therapist. It had already come in the past three years at intervals of about 1/2 year repeatedly to a coccyx inflammation, which, however, with appropriate syringes (1-2 syringes) administered by the orthopedist had passed again. But this time it was so bad that when I was sitting I only had a lot of pain, which went down to the buttocks and usually there was still a burning pain. Television was only possible in the lying, and then laterally best. I had to delete my beloved cycling altogether. Driving was also torture. The pain therapist also tried it with deliberately placed syringes, and in addition he prescribed me on my first visit Katadolon S long, of which I should take 1 whole tabl. It showed no effect for the first 14 days. On my next visit after 2 weeks, I got some injections again, but this time below. The doctor dismissed me again with the recommendation to take the Katadolon S long every evening. Two weeks later I had to tell the doctor that the treatment had been as good as unsuccessful again. Only great fatigue had invaded me after taking Katadolon, so I fell asleep regularly in the TV chair shortly thereafter. Probably that was too much, 1 whole tabl. Katadolon and 1 tabl. Gabapentin. For this I have to mention that for all my medications I still take gabapentin 300 three times a day because of my occipital neuralgia and joint and back pain. Now I have the doctor prescribed the following medication, I call it here drug cocktail: morning: Blutdrucktabl., Gabapentin, 1/2 Tabl. Tramagit 100 retard at noon: Gabapentin, 1/2 Tabl.Katadolon S long evenings: gabapentin, 1/2 tabl Tramagit 100 retard at bedtime: Doxepin 25 mg after 3 weeks Ingestion of this cocktail: improvement in sight, but not yet well, can cycle again, but then has to take a whole pill of tramagit in the evening. (The doctor has allowed me) The greatest effect, I think, comes from this special composition, especially the addition of Tramagit. At most I feel a slight tiredness, which, however, only noticeable in the evening. In 4 weeks now I have an appointment with the pain therapist again. Most of my hope is Tramagit. It is important in a tailbone ignition, so I have found that you always sit very soft. I take my special soft pillow everywhere. Summary: In gabapentin no side effects except increased appetite and thereby gaining weight, therefore eat consciously! 1 whole tablet Katadolon S long: great tiredness, possibly because taken at the same time with gabapentin, 1/2 tabl. Katadolon S long at noon is okay. Tramagit 100 mg retard twice daily 1/2 tablet: No side effects Doxepin 25: 1 tablet taken at bedtime, side effects can not be assessed. Fall asleep quickly

    Side effects: Appetite increase; Fatigue

    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 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 Nerve damage

    After initially improving post-dose pain, a steady increase in the dose was required, with the result that the side effects became serious and I am now considering withdrawing the drug. Nw with me: constant tiredness and listlessness, depressed mood, violently itchy hands and soles, blisters in the mouth, gaining weight, nightmares after a very delayed falling asleep.
