From this study (4 months ago):
I receive enough benefit from taking these medications, with varying results depending on circumstances to justify their continued use.
From this study (5 months ago):
I began taking these two meds March 20th, and have been in extreme pain (stomach) since day one. I am trying to find the reason behind it. I have diverticuli, ileitis, chronic gastritis. I have severe diarrhea.
From this study (6 months ago):
Have been on Gabapentin for years now. For the past 3-4 yrs, I have had a chronically elevated WBC without evidence of illness. WBCs run 10.5 to 13.0 consistently. Even when on antibiotics, has not dropped below 10.5. Am now wondering if this could be related to Gabapentin. The elevated WBCs have resulted in delay of care for back pain issues. At one time, I tried to get off of gabapentin - was titrating the dose(c my provider's permission). I noticed that the Restless Leg Syndrome that I had been experiencing had disappeared with the lower dose of Gabapentin. Unfortunately, the Meralgia Paresthetica synotoms increased & had to increase the Gabapentin back up. RLS came back with increased dose.
