Is it advisable to take gabapentin - 300mg, metanx and Centrum Silver?

I have neuropathy in my feet and legs. I just started taking 3 gabapentin - 300mg and two metanx every day. When I had treatment for prostrate cancer my doctor started me on Centrum Silver. Is it okay to continue taking this vitamin along with the two prescriptions that my doctor has me taking? My son-in-law thought that the combination of the three pills would cause a high B-12 problem.

Hi,

No, you continue to have all your medication as per schedule. There are no appreciable drug interactions. You can never have hypervitaminosis B12. It is a water-soluble vitamin which is excreted out in urine if the body stores are full.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. AJEET SINGH, General & Family Physician

My husband had his stomach removed due to a GIST tumor. He can t take gummy vitamins and the Centrum Silver tablet the Dr. recommended is hard to swallow, even when we split it in half. Is there a vitamin that is easier to swallow that you can recommend that won t cause him to lose weight(high in niacin or is hard on his liver (high in vitamin D or B)?

I ve taken over my 85 y.o. father in laws medicine refills and distribution. He had been taking one capsule of metanx 1x daily. The doctor told him he could use an over the counter equivalent, but I m confused as to what that would be. He currently takes 2 1000mg tabs per day.
