Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
took drugs for 9 days. Episode of atrial fibrillation 48 hours after discontinuing drug.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
hurts much more when I press on it, and sometimes hurts when I breathe deeply, or sometimes hurts with movement
From this study (2 weeks 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.
