Neurontin multiple sclerosis
Discover some of the causes of dizziness and how to treat it. The Neuros have always written to the GPs. At 9pm I pulled the handle off a cupboard. I cannot isolate any specific side effects and I am convinced that there has been no increase in my fatigue since starting the drug.
Of course I worked up to that dosage and did not start there. I take 50 mg of amitriptyline on a night time. I was told to start gradually and increase the dose gradually. I am not familiar with any of the other medications for these types of symptoms - the Gabapentin is the first one I have taken. Or you might do better with a lower dose taken more frequently.
It also takes the edge off the pain and discomfort. The side effects that I am experiencing aren't that bad - and I am willing to give it some time to see if they get better as my body adjusts to the medication.
To anyone still working out how to use gabapentin, I'd reiterate that you should read our health page on treating neuropathic pain; it was a great help to me.
Going by what you both say, I can stop whenever I feel that they're not working anymore, even if I've got to do it over a time. It has helped the leg problems I have had and personally I think my legs would have been worse since my MS diagnosis without the Gabapentin. For those of you who take Gabapentin Neurontin: This made no difference at all. I've never tried to come off it, so can't comment on the question of dependency. I was diagnosed earlier this year. Actually, the turning point came when I forgot them one day, and was out all day, so couldn't do anything about it.
Increased pain saw the rise to mg daily - and it is just about working. Your body will get used to it, but easing into it is worth the extra time it takes to get the pain control versus the yucky side effects we get from being on the wrong starting dose.
I am suffering with increasing neuropathic pain day and night but have been putting off the gabapentin for a while now. I can function like a person again and actually went back to work part time.
The top recommended limit is now mg in 3 divided doses. Gill never even batted an eyelid.
You do need to give it some time for your body to adjust to it. Hi, I have been on gabapentin for a long time, since I had my hips replaced a few years ago. I currently take mg 3 times a day. Like you I am wondering if my sudden worsening of symptoms is due to the Gabapentin.
