  1. It is completely habituating. That's a word we use when "addicting" is too inflammatory. As to suicide, if gabapentin is given for pain it is not so good at controlling, I suspect suicidal thoughts that preceded the gabapentin become more urgent. There's nothing that makes a person crazier and more desperate than pain. You don't talk about pediatric dosing. My doctor is trying to force more gabapentin into me than I'm comfortable taking to get me to ignore bladder infection he's unwilling to treat, because I don't hurt when I'm asleep. My other doctor wants me to get more exercise and less sleep. I wish they'd talk to each other…

  2. Can gabapentin make you crazy/defiant/depressed or cause more anxiety? My fiance has trigeminal neuralgia and her mental health state is collapsing. I'm terrified. I believe they just took her off tremadol recently. She is on one other medication I can't remember.

  3. Hello Sir
    Great video, thanks so much for a great video
    I was prescribed 1mg Klonopin for the last 15 months for anxiety and panic attacks.
    Last month tapered to .75mg
    Now .5mg of Klonopin.
    My Dr prescribed me now to take 300-600 mg while tapering, Dr says gabapentin will help with the taper.
    Afraid to take both of them together?
    Also maybe will be on it for 2 months will there be terrible withdraws?
    Thanks so much sir

  4. I just found this and wish to thank you for a serious and informative presentation. For several different reasons, I was prescribed gabapentin and could not take it due to excessive sleep whereas I could not wake up (or be awoken). First pill I slept for over 17 hours. Waited a day and tried again, slept for 13 hours. I need it, but the adverse reaction scared my family and me too. Have never found anything to replace it. Is there a suggestion you may have? (I am on dialysis)

  5. Wow! Just prescribed 300mg today. I am NOT taking it, I have a mild nerve pain. I will exercise and focus on anti-inflammatory foods.

  6. I remember when it first came out for epilepsy. There was no talk of addiction ,abuse and withdrawal. Now today alot of drug abusers, esp opiates, complain about those things. I think alot of the withdrawal there feeling is mostly from opiate withdrawal.

  7. Is it possible for COPD and Gabapentin to cause death from unable to breath. My brother passed from similary symptoms, he's having an autopsy done. Any idea if autopsy will reveal COPD and Gapapentin causing his pneumonia and then death? Never mind, too complex a topic for a comment section, sorry.

  8. I used to take 4 300mg pills a day. Now I am down to 1 or 2 pills. Soon it will be 1 day and then 2 or 3 times a week. Eventually I will be completely off of them at the of 2021.

  9. I take it for partial complex seizures, a low dose, and have had very few breakthrough seizures in the many years I've taken it. It also helps my anxiety, fibro, and restless leg. I do notice brain fog…..

  10. I have polycystic kidney disease stage 3. I have been taking 100 mg for like 5 years. No one has ever discussed my fatigue that may be caused by this.. I also take 100 my of hydrocodone 100 mg tid for arthritis. Also I am on klonopin 1 mg tid. I have hypertension and am medicated for that After seeing those I will be seeing a new family doctor who I will be discussing this more. Please send me any information or comments that my be helpful. Debbie

  11. Excellent presentation. I love your accent too. I take Gabapentin for pain. It works well for me. It also helps with anxiety. Thank you for taking the time to share your knowledge.

  12. It made my mom hallucinate, but my brother & my aunt were ok with it. I don't take it anymore, but I forgot what it did for me that made me stop taking it.

  13. GABAPENTIN ALMOST KILLED ME….IT RIPPED MY INSIDES APART…FOR THREE YEARS AFTER I BLED..INTERNALLY….I WILL NEVER TAKE ANY OF YOUR CRAPPY MEDICATION EVER AGAIN…..FOR ONE DOES EVERYBODY GET MEDICATION HAS TO HAVE A THICKENER TO BIND IT INTO A PILL? THAT REQUIRES WHEAT OR CORN OR RICE OR A MILK DIRIVETIVE OR YOGURT BASE….SO ANY GLUTEN FREE OR CELUAC PEOPLE HAVING SEVER SIDE EFFECTS MAY WANT TO TELL YOUR DOCTORS ….WHY YOU CANT TOLERATE PILLS AND WHY YOUR GETTING NEW DISEASES IS BECAUSE YOUR AGGRAVATING YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM..
