Feeling more pain with Gabapentin??

Postby ruth2013 » Fri May 03, 2013 2:11 pm

Hello again,

As I go through the trials of trying almost everything the doc gives me to try and alleviate the pain, I have just been put on Gabapentin and am currently working up through the dosage to the full 900 a day.

I feel like I am going bonkers. :crazy: :crazy: It feels like I am aching more now I have started this. I haven't done any activities out of the norm for me.

Anyone else had this??

Thank you!!!

How long have you been on the Gabas ruth?? They need time to get into your system, which can be a month or 2, so you made need to give them a bit longer.

A new med often comes with side effects, which could be why you're feeling so awful at the moment. This tends to start easing off after a while, so persevering with them a little longer might be what you need to do. If things are too unbearable tho, talk to your GP.

When all else fails, hug your teddy xx

Gabapentin gave me nightmares and i had to come off them on go on pregablin @ 200mg 3 x a times.. If your not happy go back to ur G.P and ask him to change then.

Also like others have said you have to give them chance to get into your system

Hi there,

Thanks for your responses. I have only been on them for 3 days lol.

I am also on Tramadol (waste of time) and Duloxitine (Cymbalta).

I will persevere for a while, thanks for the advice.

the gabapentin made me feel sick my dr said to persevere with it, gradually increasing the does every 2 weeks. i managed to get up to half dose but after 3 months i just couldnt bear feeling so nauseous all the time and gave up

i hate tramadol but take it when things are really bad, it really upsets my stomach ( do u see a pattern here lol) and also makes me feel very tired and achy

maybe its the combo of the 2 thats causing u problems? hope it wears off but u do need to try and persevere for a bit longer
