From this study (2 days 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.

My mom was admitted to a nursing home 2-weeks ago before that she was held over at the hospital 13 days, meds was changed, Aricept removed and Detrol she had a staff MD. her primary care md passed away 3 years ago. He put her on her meds and tooked good care of her. She has not been without a primary md but he does not practice outside his offices. Mom had a good mental status did removing Aricept/Detrol trigger bad symptoms?

- By Curious: When is the best time of day to take a baby aspirin for a male or female over 65?
I have read that the best time of day to take a Baby Aspirin to prevent a heart attack or stroke is at night. However, not all the studies agree that the time of day matters. According to your own physician, what time of day is considered the best to receive the optimum benefits?
