    Gabapentin for sleep and Restless Leg

    I'm on gabapentin to help me sleep and treat my restless leg due to a side effect from another one of my meds.
    It's treating my restless leg fully, it helped me fall asleep really well for about 2-3 weeks, but it did leave me very groggy in the mornings, almost drunk-like.
    The problem is however that my body is already adjusting really quickly, I started on 100mg, I take 200mg now and I'm going up to 300 mg tomorrow as my doctor is allowing me to self-titrate up to 300mg. I could have gone up to 300mg a week ago but I didn't as the 200 was still working but isn't as well for sleep.
    I was wondering if anyone else has noticed Gabapentin adjusts to their body really quickly. #Gabapentin #Sleep #

    Gabapentin 2700mg is just NOT Enough #Gabapentin # #Nerve and joint pain #Medication

    I can’t understand why my gabapentin just feels like nothing for my chronic pain and nerve damage.

    I am suffering so immensely in my body and right now in this moment I just want to scream.

    My Monday challenge and still grateful

    I am really tired today because of the side effects/tiredness of taking Ropinirole for the treatment of my restless legs. I want my energy back so bad. I am happy for going on a walk in this nice weather and writing to the Mighty community. I have so much more to accomplish in this life. Please allow me to keep the fight and not quit. Thank you! #RestlessLegsSyndrome #CheckInWithMe #Gabapentin

    Anyone on #Gabapentin for alcohol cravings?

    I'm wondering others experiences taking Gabapentin ( for alcohol cravings or other things related to addiction).

    I just started it, and I am finding it is helping. Makes me feel a bit out of it. But, I am not drinking now! So that is a huge plus.

    Anyway -- I would love to know your thoughts!

    Fibro and muscle relaxers difficulty urinating

    Does anyone go thru this?:
    When I take muscle relaxers or gabapentin I have difficulty urinating. I end up doing all kinds of gyrations trying to get a stream started let alone keep it going. Then I end up with a UTI because I haven't been fully emptying. It's a if my urinary tract spasms like my intestines do in conjunction with my IBS and when I take the meds Im unable to relax the ureter so I can release. #Fibromyaliga #urinating difficulty#UTI #IBSD #Muscle relaxers #Gabapentin

    Trying Gabapentin for the First Time #Gabapentin #Anxiety

    I am trying gabapetin for the first time tomorrow. I'm hoping it will help my IC calm down a little bit. I am really nervous about taking it. I just seem to have this fear that I will drop dead or something.

    Gabapentin for cptsd anxiety

    Hi,
    My doctor wants me to try #Gabapentin for my cptsd and extreme anxiety. I have read a lot of scary things on the internet- can anyone who has tried gabapentin or is currently taking it for ptsd or anxiety let me know if it works? And what the side effects are? Does it make you high/energetic or Tired/zoned out?
    Any answers are greatly appreciated

    Fellow fibro fighters: Gabapentin, how do you like it?

    I got a new primary doctor today and she was awesome. Listened to every concern I had, didn't brush off anything I said, and wrote great referrals for everything she couldn't take care of. She wrote me a script for gabapentin too. I have only been on one other medication for fibromyalgia and I had nothing but terrible side effects and went off of it. That was a year ago and I havent been on anything else. I'm hesitant and slightly hopefully though. But those of you on it, do you like it? Do you have any side effects? Google can only say so much in my opinion. I prefer actual experiences from real people. Please share yours with me!!! #Fibromyalgia #Gabapentin #Experiences #Newmeds #hopeful
