From this study (6 months ago):
I have been started again on a regiment of topiramate and keppra for migraine headaches and it is working very well. The biggest side effect is blood sugars too high both fasting and non-fasting. I am not a diabetic, I have not dumped huge amounts of weight and I am not urinating a lot. I do have dry mouth, but taking Neurontin will cause dry mouth - I have had that constantly since I have been on Neurontin. I'm just trying to see if the Topamax and Keppra is driving the high blood sugars. Non fasting hangs around 125. Fasting from 103-115.
When first diagnosed with multiple sclerosis I gained 60 pounds within 6 months time. I was always a thin person before this.
Can you answer these questions (what is this?):
- I'm 29 weeks pregnant and take 2,400 mg of neurontin a day for anxiety and depression. will my baby be born with withdrawal symptoms?
Will my baby be born with withdrawal symptoms? Will tapering off the medicine before she's born hurt my baby? Would it be safer for her if I keep taking the Neurontin, or if I wean myself off (with doctor's help, of course)?
- Crushing leg pain in both legs and numbness in right hand and arm due to avonex?
