Advised for gabapentin. What is the dosage? - Online Doctor Chats
Doctor I want to talk to Dr XXXXXXX who attended my case yesterday
Dr XXXXXXX just logged off. She will be available later after 6PM
She suggested me a medicine for back ache by name gabapentin
I come to know thru pharmacy it's composition and the commercials will be different name
I want to know the mgs of the tablet to take?
Gabapentin is a generic name
IT is a prescription based medicine we would not mention the trade name as it can lead to drug abuse
We generally ask them to get a prescription from local practitioner
so how much mg can i take?
100mg is the lowest dose
However it depends on your age, weight and previous medical use
It has high abuse potential
We prescribe with the lowest possible dose
Im of 30 years, 86kgs previously i haven't used
It requires a greater dose for your weight however it may cause side effects
So I suggest you get a prescription from local doctor
The pharmacy guy is indirectly telling you to get a prescription
Hence he would not have dispensed the drug
He knows it has abuse potential and greater side effect profile
Gabapentin is well known amongst chemist it does not require a brand name
are you with me?
Did you follow what I just said?
I have to close the window as you are not responding
