    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.
