  • 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?

  • Xanax and periphial neuropathy
    Took 1mg of Xanax 3x a day for 29 years and I have Peripheral Neuropathy! I withdrew off of over a year time and have been off of it for 5 months. I believe that it had something to do with my Neurpathy because the problems started when I started to withdraw from it! It is horrible! I wish that more people would report this about Xanax!
  • 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.
  • Neurotin as an anabolic
    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.
  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Lamotrigine severe rash
    I started taking 100mg of Teva-Lamotrigine Nov 22 once daily. I got a refill on Dec 5 that was Mylan-Lamotrigine. Two days later I woke up with an odd hot feeling rash all over my body and severe fatigue. I went back to bed 1/2 hour later after taking my regular Wellbutrin and the Lamotrigine. I woke up late morning. It got progressively worse during the day and I had a headache,fever and chills. I took the anti-histimine Aerius later that day which didn't help. The next day I went to a walk in clinic and they said it wasn't the Lamotrigine and thought it was a virus and did a throat swab. The fever and chills went away after a few days but I still have the rash. Finally after a week I saw a doctor that agreed it was the drug and I am now on the second week of Prednisone steroid treatment and prescription Reactin which is helping slowly. I have reported it to the Mylan drug company.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I think it was brought on by the Suboxone. I took 3-4 a day for approximately 4 years starting 11 years ago. Stopped them but realized they were helping with my depression. After trying every antidepressant with no help the Suboxone was wonderful. I got back on it but only taking 2-3 a day for another 2-3 years. Insurance stopped paying about 9 months ago. I continued to take them, but only 1 a day for another 1-2 years. Now, I take 1 occasionally. When I completely stopped the neuropathy gradually began. It was around Sept. I began to notice my feet felt like they were numb. With shoes on I felt like they were wet. I also noticed getting weaker and my family noticed I was walking slow, etc. Feel terrible with terrible problem of something like hot flashes, but those were over years ago. Have lots of nausea. My doctor used some type instrument and I have very little feeling on the bottom of my feet. He is sending me to a neurologist.

  • I am waiting for my 2nd revision (3rd attempt) to a supposed routine hip replacement on a 40 year old woman. We found out after the second attempt that as they put it "my bones were just too soft to hold the screws in place, even though I was keeping correct alignment, my bones were just soft." I said like osteoporosis???! They said no, no! Just. soft, like wet wood, from severe arthritis. You think someone would check this before surgery? Right? I don't know.
