Active Ingredients: Gabapentin
I was scared of what the side effects would be like.
Tramadol, i wish i could take, but i took one 50 mg one night and it didnt work, so the next day, i took one 50 mg then another 6 hrs later, thinking i would be ok by having the 6 hrs space, in the night i woke up feeling weird, and when i got up, i was violently sick, i thought i was dying...

Unfortunately, we now know that gabapentin can, in fact, become a drug of abuse for some users.
It turns out that its typical side effects of dizziness and sedation can be exploited by those who want to use the drug to feel high.
People who misuse gabapentin will often say that they feel euphoric, high, or zoned out.
Because of this, it has become a popular drug of abuse in prisons, where there is a high rate of diversion.
So where does this leave us?
So basically any side effects anyone has had please post: thank you A. Carol Aug 11, 1:13 pm I started with 300 mg of gabapentin for 1 week for peripheral neuropathy and side effects drowsy and increased pain were so bad that I quit.
I have now been on 100 mg for 2 weeks and I have pain in most of my joints and muscles like I have never had before, to the point where I am having difficulty walking.
I will be talking to my doctor shortly.
After reading all these reviews, I don't know if I should take it, I have always been sensitive to medications, and I am leary of the side effects. I was put on it for children and neurapathy due to alcohol.
I also interact't want swelling of antibiotics and feet. Anybody have any questions on this.
