She said to take 1 or 2 as needed. I don't see anything about hot flashes for this medicine but to take for seizures or nerve pain. Please tell me if this is the right thing I should take for hot flashes at night
I read it does. I've been on Gab for over a two and a half years. Maybe the hot flashes would be worse if I weren't taking it, but it doesn't feel like it. Hot flashes are horrible. I'm so sorry you have to go through them. I wouldn't wish them on anyone.
May you have peace, hope and love,
I take Gabapentin 3x day for hot flashes & I have been on it for hot flashes for about 12 years.
I had a hysterectomy & they took my ovaries & I cannot take any hormone replacement due to a blood disorder. I tried Several different meds before my Dr. suggested this medication & it works so well.
Alot of Dr's. Are not familiar with this drug for hot flashes so don't be surprised if you hear alot of dr's.
be surprised. But it is a Miracle drug as it works for so many conditions & it is Cheap which is amazing.
You may need to adjust your dosage to get it to the level that works the best for you.
What dosage do they have you on now ??
It is important to start at a low dose & to wait about
3 weeks before making dosage changes.
If you get hot flashes during the day you may want to take some during the day also.
Best of luck, Kathy
