the same time has your pain meds (on Nucynta ER 50mg 2X). Or should I take them hour or so early then my gab ? have been on Gab. seen Sept. 2013 for nerve damage pain. (first on 300mg,went 600mg then 900mg). In Jan. I was diagnose with CRPS/2 with nerve damage to my right foot. I am new to all this taking meds. Also on Fluoxetine 40mg for Depression/PTSD-Metoprolol 25mg/2X-Lisinopril 10mg/12.5mg 2X for high blood pressure/high heart rate.
I'm still new to this site! But actually I'm a quadriplegic.. I take 2700mg of gabapentin every day for severe burning nerve pain in both my legs.. The max dose is 3,600mg of Gabapentin a day. So yes you should be fine taking 900mg 3x but I do not know how Gabapentin will react to your other medications. I hope this helps you!
I take 2400 mgs. a day and usually take it with all my other pain and mental health meds. I've never had a problem doing so, and really don't think you will either. However, everyone is different, so I'd try it once and if nothing happens, then your body has no problem with it, most likely. Gabapentin has been around for many, many years, and I've found the meds that have been around for a while don't have as many side effects, or long term effects as all these new ones seem to. As for long term, we don't even know what those effects will be with all these new meds, where the side effects and cautions take up more time on a commercial than the actual ad! Should be fine to take your Gabapentin with your other meds. Good luck to you and let us know how it all works out for you!
You should be ok taking them together. Its no different if you took the gabapentin an hour later the nucynta is in your system then anyway.
