Hi, my dr. Started me on Gabapentin to help control

Hi, my dr. Started me on Gabapentin to help control my migraines. I have been on it for 4 weeks now. I have IBS and have been having severe constipation since taking it. I take 100 mg twice a day. My concern is that my sensation to evacuate my bowels isn't there any more. I am due to see a neurologist next week but should I see someone before then?

Hi... my doctor started me gabapentin 100 mg, increasing to 200 mg, up to 300 mg on Thurs 3/30. I took 100 mg for 3 days, 200 for 3 days, I m up to 300 mg which was last night. I don t want to be on it anymore, it s not helping me with the pain I m having from a bulging disc. I called her office today and told them that I wanted to stop taking it and to advise me on how to wean myself off it. The office said they would have her nurse assistant called me back sometime today. I never rec d a call, so I m trying to educate myself on how to wean myself off. The prescription info I got with the medication recommended not stopping altogether. I needed to talk to my doctor before I stopped.

Hi, I recently was started on Gabapentin for Fibro pain and chronic daily migraine/headaches. It has helped some, but I ve started to gain weight back. Over the last 2 years I ve lost a 100 lbs. And I m up nearly 15 lbs since I ve started on the med. Oh and its sweets that I crave, it its kinda been a vicious cycle eat - throw up- Eat again cycle.
