    Gabapentin for High blood pressure; Rls; Pain (chronic)

    For more than four years I suffer from chronic back and joint pain. It is thought that I suffer from fibromyalgia, because my x-rays show only signs of aging and mild osteoporosis. I have consulted tens of doctors. And I feel like the conceited patient. But my pain has been there for years! Now I have received Novaminsulfone. The drug helps but only briefly. It causes difficulty falling asleep, diarrhea, twitching, and irritability. For a while I got tilidine. That made me addicted, with the result that I went to a clinic for four weeks for withdrawal. I would like a strong, more effective remedy without the sch … side effects and no consequences of dependence.

    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.
