Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • 1st 3 symptoms due to a tooth extraction on 10/22/12 by an over-zealous dentist. After much effort the tooth finally came out and he exclaimed, "Most dentists would have sent a patient with a tooth like that to an oral surgeon, but I seem to have very good luck in getting them out." Little did I know that he had broken my maxillary bone and a week later I almost died from multiple bacterial infections in my sinus cavity. The bacteria damaged all 3 branches of my Trigeminal nerve and 3 surgeries later I have seen no improvement. Now have double vision in right eye and trigeminal pain 24/7. Gabapentin was a life saver, but only decreases pain and never eliminates it. Severe coughing started soon after starting gabapentin and cough is very wet, as if I have bronchitis. Chest x-Ray 4/7/14 shows normal and my doctor is perplexed. Neurologist has me taking Dextromorphan Hydrobromide, but seems to be ineffective. Help!

  • From this study (2 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.
