  • Nikki on Feb, 5, 2015:

    I am a 36 yr old female. 5'8 109lbs. I've battled anorexia since age 9. Up until I was on gabapentin I had no former heart problems. I was recently put on baclofen 5mg effexor 37.5 abilify 2.5 mg and was already taking gabapentin 300 3× daily. I had been diagnosed with thoracic cervical stenosis at c5 needing decompression surgery. The week before I had been scheduled for a breast biopsy which they cancelled because while taking the gabapentin alone I started having chest pains and the occasional fluttering in my chest. After taking my final dose the evening they started me on the three new meds I started feeling sick to my stomach, my internal temp rose,I was shaking and sweating. My heart started racing by 10:30pm. When I would try to sit up the headache I had was so severe the only relief came from laying my head down. By 2am I started having vision problems. Since that night I have palpitations daily and my bp has dropped from where it has sat for 13 yrs at 120/80 to 90/53. Hardly ever above 106/67. Sometimes when I have a sudden drop my heart will raise to 95-105 at rest. I am now currently on life watch event monitor as of last week. I stopped taking the abilify and the effexor and have been switched to zanaflex 10mg 3× daily and continuing with the gabapentin 300 3× daily but my condition seems to be worsening. Is it possible these medications are making my heart condition worse? And if so how do I approach my drs.(because I have 3 prescribing drs) to listen to my concerns. Im starting to become concerned if I stay on these meds what may happen. Thank you for your time and any input you may have
