I am currently 5-6 600mg talets of Gabapenton daily. I need this high dosage to make back pain tolerable. Didn't know until reading this blog that the itching rash could be caused by Gabapentin. What do ai do?
Seek medical attention right away if any of these SEVERE side effects occur when using Gabapentin:
Severe allergic reactions (rash; hives; itching; difficulty breathing; tightness in the chest; swelling of the mouth, face, lips, or tongue; unusual hoarseness)
Hi bgnash. I take 1800 mg of Gabapentin, and that's the highest amount that my dr. said people should have. Sometimes there are circumstances where the amount your taking is necessary. Seek medical attention asap. What your experiencing is the very first side affect of all the adverse reactions. It's essential to get immediate attention. Stay calm. It's probably something the doc can help you with. Take care and God bless you. Anna
p.s. Check this info out on drugs.com. Or google "rash with gabapentin. That's how I found this info.
