Deb (2 years ago):

Gabapentin (Neurontin) has a nick name called Moron-tin. It is absolutely possible this caused the issue you described and if I were you - I would be getting a different doc. For me, I get very good relief from Baclofen (actually an MS drug that treats the spasms) and hydrocodone for pain. It manages my issues quite well without any brain fog issues. Best of luck to you.

Age: 59 Female Problem is severe leg pain and lower back. my doctor put me on Gabapentin, butrin patch and percoset for my pain. Within the first week, my husband works away from home for 2 wweeks through the month, he was gone, and our house security system went off and all I can remember is I was walking outside around our pool (3:00am) and all of a sudden a female deputy is in my living room telling me to come inside. I don't know what we discussed, but remember talking to her and remember what she looked like. Course the security system alerted the deputy and also called my husband. I threw all but the percoset in the garbage, I needed to keep one of them for my pain. My husband said I was literally carrying on whole conversations in my sleep. I told my doctor what happened and that I threw the drugs away, and he really got upset and wanted to know if I wanted a different doctor. that I need to take what he prescribes and that he has never, never heard of those side effects and he treats hundreds of pain patients each day. I felt like he thought I was lying. But, it did happen, and was crawling out of my skin. So Im back on the patch and the percoset, but I will not touch the Gabapentin 100mg again, not ever!!!

  • Lymphadenopathy from milk of magnesia?
    I was constipated for 10 days with no relief from prune juice or stool softeners. During this time an aching pain developed in my right hip and right lower back. I drank 3 tbs of Milk of Magnesia for two days and it alleviated my constipation. The hip and lower back pain started to go away too. Soon after taking Milk of Magnesia, a lymph node became swollen and very painful in my right arm pit.
  • Percocet and memory loss
    A close friend of mine has been using prescription Percocet for 5 to 6 years. Her MD first prescribed the lowest dosage possible to be taken 3 to 4 times daily for pain. I am aware that this medication frequently needs to be increased because it will become less effective. I don't know how many times he has increased the dosage but it has been many times. I believe now she is taking the highest dosage of it up to four to six times daily and six tablets at a time. I have made several attempts to tell her the information I know about Percocet and to have her to ask her MD about her now short and long term memory problems. Her response is to shout at me, telling me she needs that much for pain and to mind my own business when I tell her about the negative side effects I see, especially her daily and hourly memory problems. She has also said she has no reason to speak to her doctor about memory problems. I think that is because she fears he might lower the dosage. My concern about her poor memory only causes her to tell me I am the one with a bad memory, even though the only pain meds I infrequently take are OTC ones. According to my MD, I have been told my memory for my age of 63 is perfectly fine and better than most for my age. Also I take no medications with the side effects that cause memory problems. In addition when my MD prescribes new medication I always read the info that accompanies them, do research online and pay attention to all warnings and side effect info. The few times I have had side effects they have only been GI problems and I have consulted my MD regarding those and work with my MD for an alternative medication. My friend NEVER EVER reads any of the accompanying material that comes with her prescriptions. Also she never looks up her medications online to get additional information, including possible side effects. I worry about her very much and fear she now has an addiction to Percocet. Several years ago she asked her MD for Chantix to stop smoking, never reading the info supplied with the prescription. I urged to read the info and side effects. She declined, telling me she knew what she was doing. After two weeks of using Chantix she had a mental break down and ended up on the psych ward of our local hospital for 3 weeks. That medication was the first that began to cause her to have memory problems. She accepted that fact for about a month then dismissed it claiming her memory problems were over. They weren't because she was still taking Percocet. I understand no one wants to be told by a friend they suspect that person has memory problems, but I haven't done so to be mean or cruel, but only out of great love and concern. At this point with all the Percocet she takes daily she really is at a level to be considered an addict and I fear soon she will convince her MD to increase the dosage because it no longer controls her pain. I've written this review as a cautionary tale to inform others to be vigilant with their family, friends and loved ones as Percocet can and does cause short and long term memory loss. Although all my efforts to assist and speak to my friend have failed, please don't give up on those in your life who you notice are experiencing memory loss signs that take Percocet. If possible speak to them or their MD. Oh, and be prepared to be yelled at that you are the one with memory problems or to be told to mind your own business. And please, please read the information that accompanies all of your medications.
  • Why does my urine smell bad?
    urine has very strong fowel odor. smells like rotting meat. very concentrated and cloudy and dark color.
  • Which issue has caused my periodontitis, my fibromyalgia or spinal stenosis? (2 responses)
    At the age of 38 yrs old, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and Spinal Stenosis. Obviously I had both of the disease for some years, and was struggling with the pain and symptoms for some time before I finally got checked, went through years being told they didn't find anything, told I had Herniated disks in My back only. Now with all the findings, there are 7 Herniated disks from My neck to My lower back.
    Also since 2010, I was diagnosed with Periodontitis and have been losing all of My teeth in the top of My mouth.
    I am 44 yrs old now, have been on disability for the last 4 years. I am down to 6 teeth in the top of My mouth, since having 1 removed just last week. They are telling Me that 3 more need to come out, and I am trying not to sink into total depression, especially since these are now My front teeth. I have a appointment today for a Denture Exam.

    I started researching today to see if this Periodontitis is related to either My Spinal Stenosis or My Fibromyalgia. Especially since I once again looked up the definition for Periodontitis. Which States;

    **Periodontal Disease and Bone Health. Periodontitis is a chronic infection that affects the gums and the bones that support the teeth. Bacteria and the body's own immune system break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place.

    Of course with My disease of Spinal Stenosis and the bone loss as well as the nerve narrowing, I thought the breaking down of the bone in the gums might have a connection. Research didnt find any linking.

    Now with Fibromyalgia, research showed 6 out of 17 thousand that they found. LOL Wow.. Well I guess I am "Number 7". Lucky Me! But it does make more sense now that looking at the definition. It is a Chronic infection (which Fibromyalia does create these) that effects the gums and bones. Bacteria and The Body's own Immune System break down the bone and connective tissue that hold the teeth. Which with Fibromyalgia, our Immune System is always all kinds of "Crazy"!

    Oh course you can not have any of these diseases, or any other health issues and wind up with Periodontitis. It happens. But I know from lots of reading, researching and living with Fibromyalgia, that it is "Very Possible"!

    I would sure like to know what others with these 2 diseases are experiencing.
    Have a Blessed Day.
  • Horrendous -nearly died from fentanyl
    I took Fentanyl 25mcg/hr patch. It should last 3 days. After 24 hours, there was no effect. My doctor recommended adding a second patch. Within 6 hours, I was vomiting every 15 minutes. I removed both patches. I could not even keep down a sip of water for 30 hours. My brother was with me, and he thought I had died twice.
    Terrifying - ineffective - dangerous
