- Can gabapentin be taken with theanine? (1 answer)
Our adult son is 34 and his medical doctor is using Gabapentin for behaviors and anxiety. We (my husband and I) use Theanine for anxiety for ourselves. Our son is showing signs of anxiety and he is nonverbal. His behaviors go up when he is anxious and he also stops eating. We want to use the theanine with the gabapentin but his medical Dr. thinks its bologny. We certainly dont want to give him the theanine if there is an interaction with the gabapentin. We have talked with our pharmacist and he doesnt see that there could be a problem Our sons dr. had never even heard of "Theanine". Anyone have the answer to combining the two?

- Fibromyalgia, rsd, interstitial cystitis, lupus
I have suffered chronic autoimmune conditions for over 20 years. Started out as fibromyalgia, for over a decade. Under a lot of stressors, 8 yrs ago, acquired more autoimmune conditions such as: Interstital Cystitis (IC), sjorgren's syndrome (chronic dry eye..sometimes testing + & sometimes -), RSD in right upper extremity (following cervical fusion surgery), then Lupus (sometimes + & - on bloodwork). Many MDs made me feel as if it was "in my head" b/c of all stressors in life @ the time. An Alternative Medicine/Internal Medicine MD believed in me, as well as a great endrocrinologist...HOPE was FINALLY FOUND & RESULTS GOTTEN. Acupuncture, LDN (Low Dose Naltrexone), eliminating sugar, all sugar substitutes (replacing ONLY with ORGANIC stevia), eating non-GMO foods (basically no prepacked foods that has no more than 7 "ingredients" you have no idea what they are!), eating fresh fruit/veggies, only grass fed/organic meats, fish from U.S. I SLOWLY integrated diet changes, as had great difficulty changing my diet. I was a sugarholic! Especially when stressed! Eliminating sugar, however, proved to be most immediate pain reliever. Next...LOW DOSE NALTREXONE!! (lowdosenaltrexone.org most helpful explaining & finding MDs to prescribe it..Another HUGE hurdle until the 2 MDs listed above suggested, rx'd & maintaining me on after 1 yr!) CANNOT SAY ENOUGH ABOUT LDN.. HAVE TO HAVE PATIENCE..longer have had condition(s), longer to see results! It has allowed me to have a participating life..has it cured all conditions..no..has improved quality of life..TREMENDOUSLY!! My MDs both believe RSD (in presence of other autoimmune condition(s) is basically an autonomic nervous system autoimmune disease (your nervous system NEVER stops firing! Thereby creating: severe pain, swelling, redness, skin changes, burning sensation, etc., we experience). Acupuncture helped SIGNIFICANTLY regulate the autonomic nervous system, reducing severe RSD pain..did it require alot of acupuncture? Yes..to keep "resetting" nervous system response..UNTIL LDN therapy & now require 4x's/yr for acupuncture. ALWAYS make sure an acupuncturist is an MD &/or REGISTERED as a CERTIFIED acupuncturist (google it). The diet changes were the "cherry on top of the sundae" (see, the sugarholic is still there & have to work at it everyday! BUT results in biggest pain reduction of ALL autoimmune condition symptoms..then, no dairy (except organic aged cheese, ie. Kefir, blue cheese, feta, etc), increase fresh fruits/veggies..eliminate GMO foods (google it!), etc. My husband & I both lost jobs (mine from my health..his from downsizing in company! We were on VERY limited budget. IT CAN BE DONE: buy frozen organic (or non organic if cannot afford..still changing to good eating!) fruits & veggies if too expensive for fresh..or, organic vegetable/fruit powders with organic almond or coconut milk w/chia seeds, flavored w/frozen fruit & stevia..organic pea, hemp, whey protein pwders full of amino acids are affordable on vitacost.com & look @'it as a trip to grocery store or a run to fast food (even fast food meal costs more than the powders. Etc made in smoothies!) GOOD reading & I hope I have helped change just 1 person's pain & made their lives more liveable, functional & enjoyable! I was in bed for 2 yrs! I thought i'd NEVER enjoy anything in life again..it's still a struggle @ times...but..without excruciating pain in EVERY part of my body! If u can do ONLY 1 change..do the LDN! It's $10 a month from Skip's Pharmacy in Boca Raton, FL! They ship all over there world! It's cheap & WORKS!! They are great people as well! God Bless
- Vasculitis caused by gabapentin
i also take but didnt have such symptom till recent; however, such could be due to gabapentin 1800 mg/d.
also was suing at the time topamac 100 mg amitriptyline 50 mg, metoprolol 25 mg HCTZ 25 mg,Proventil inh etc.,OTC Tylenol aspirin and vitamins. Been on gabapentin about 15 months but on other meds more than 5 yrs. on and off.
Since more than 10 weeks I developed 1 to 2 inches across reddish areas on feet and ankles not raised , and slightly dotted;total about 4 or 5 on each foot and ankle.,that dont itch or ache, dont seem to grow or subside w any cream like HC. showed to doctor,said to observe.Basic screening tests were neg,but perhaps needs more testing. We discussed possiblility of bites from various things but I doubt that.
- Roaring in the ears from tramadol (taken with dexamethasone)
It seems the roaring in my right ear happens more around taking the tramadol (2-3/day). Of course, I have a (5) day regiment of dexamethasone at (2/day) so maybe there's a connection. This was prescribed by my GP ( highly regarded) for severe lower back bulging disc pain and down left leg. Also prescribed tizanidine for muscle spasms and gabapentin for, maybe nerve swelling? Both at 2/day but I take less of these two.
Back pain much better but have the roaring in right ear and can't sleep much. Also doing the Dr recommended exercises daily. Will follow up with chiropractic if this doesn't get me there.
This is a chronic condition, maybe 20 years, no specific injury, just an accumulation of doing dumb things in my youth.

Takave been taking anabolic steroids for about 6 weeks my games were linear unlock the entire time. When I started taking Neurontin with anabolic steroids my anabolism was increased by at least 30%. There was no change in diet or any other variables as far as I can tell. The only variable was the neurontin.it just so happens did my workout partner is taking Neurontin and getting the some effect. I know for a fact it affects the digestive system.
