Gabapentin and Ibuprofen

Postby just-me » Mon Jan 07, 2013 10:44 am

I take Gabapentin for my fibro. I've had a stinking headache for the last couple of days. Is it ok to take Ibuprofen as well as the Gabapentin?

I dont see why not. Gabapentin is actually an epilepsy drug which has been found to help with pain, Ibuprofen is an anti inflammatory drug. If you are really worried pop down to your nearest chemist, they will be able to help or phone your surgery. xx

I do actually have epilepsy as well so I take other drugs for that. I find it so hard to stay awake and normal feeling. Life isn't kind to us all is it? :roll:

Hello Just Me.

I've tried both Pregabalin and Gabapenthin and had a bad reaction in that I felt as if I had a permanent hang-over. I spoke to my GP and my sister(she's a Specialist Rheumatology Nurse)and its one of the side-effects of these tablets. On top of that they did very little to relieve my pain, so rather than have a thick head all day every day I stopped taking the medication. I am now just managing on Co-codomaol 30/500mg, Mobic , anti-inflammatory gel and my tens machine. I've had FMS since 1997 and have tried various things and have found that there's not a lot out there to relieve the pain etc. Just rest, taking medication on time and geting to know your when you have reached your limit and don't ignore it or you'll pay for it pain wise.

If your dog doesn't like someone, then you probably shouldn't either
