for nerve pain from back down leg to my foot
You can take up to 3600 mg a day.
But, be careful of the side effects. Look up the information on Gabapenten
on Drugs.com and read all of them. What did your doctor tell you about this drug? I am assuming you went to a doctor for this. Falling is one of the side effects, while on Gabapenten. There are many more side effects for Gabapenten - so be sure to look for any of these side effects while taking this medication. I take it for an auto-immune disease. It is also prescribed for
seizures and many other things that the medical community has discovered.
I hope it relieves your pain. Not many doctors prescribe this drug for certain things, but it does relieve many things. If your doctor prescribed 1600 mg
per day - I would hope that he/she has told you to start at 100 mg or 300 mg
and to work your way up to the dosage of 1600 mg/day.
Good luck and I hope this medication helps you. If you see or feel any of
the side effects call your doctor immediately.
I wish you well. Get relief soon. God bless.
Take only what's prescribed for you.
Hi my doctor has me on 2-600 mg 3x a day so that equals is 3600 a day! But he told me it was safe to take this much ! Not sure if your doctor would give u this much or note! Hope this helps !!
I take 2400mg a day for diabetic neuropathy and as a mood stabilizer. Luckily I have not had any side effects.
I JUST GOT BACK FROM THE DOCTOR TODAY,I AM BACK ON THE gabapentin .WAS OFF OF IT FOR ABOUT 5 MONTHS.TALKED TO A REP AT GNC VITAMIN STORE,THEY SUGGESTED TO USE ALPHA-LIPOIC ACID FOR MY SEVERE NERVE DAMAGE . I WANTED TO TRY & GO A NATURAL ROUTE.IT WORKED FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS,THEN NERVES STARTED GOING CRAZY AGAIN, I COULDN'T TAKE IT ANY LONGER.THE FIRST TIME TAKING IT I WAS PRESCRIBED 600 MG 3 TIMES A DAY, BUT BY NIGHT TIME,NERVES WERE GOING CRAZY AGAIN.TODAY I WAS PRESCRIBED 800 MG 4 TIMES A DAY..IT IS THE SECOND HALF OF THE DAY WHEN I GOT THEM. SO HAVE TAKEN 1600 MG FOR THE REST OF THE DAY NOW..I AM SO MUCH BETTER NOW,NO NERVE PAIN AT ALL,(KNOCK ON WOOD) MY WHOLE BODY IS JUST CALM ALL OVER.I JUST MIGHT HAVE TO BE ON THIS THE REST OF MY LIFE.I JUST HOPE MY TOLERANCE DOESN'T EXCEED THE 3200 MG I'VE BEEN PRESCRIBED,WHAT THEN?
