Neurontin Provides Significant Pain Relief - Daynighthealthcare

By Expert Author: John Wharton

Neurontin (gabapentin) is an anti-epileptic medication, also called an anticonvulsant. It affects chemicals and nerves in the body that are involved in the cause of seizures and some types of pain.

It is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat seizures caused by epilepsy in adults and children who are at least 12 years old. It is also used with other medications to treat partial seizures in children who are 3 to 12 years old.
Neurontin is also used in adults to treat nerve pain caused by herpes virus or shingles (herpes zoster).

Precautions:

You should not use this if you are allergic to gabapentin.
To make sure Neurontin is safe for you, tell your doctor if you have:

kidney disease;
liver disease;
heart disease; or
(for patients with RLS) if you are a day sleeper or work at night shifts.

Some people have thoughts about suicide while taking this medicine. Your doctor will need to check your progress at regular visits while you are using this product. Your family or other caregivers should also be alert to changes in your mood or symptoms.

What should I avoid?

This medication may cause blurred vision or impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be alert and able to see clearly.
Avoid taking an antacid within 2 hours before or after you take Neurontin. Antacids can make it harder for your body to absorb gabapentin.
Drinking alcohol can increase certain side effects of it.

Side effects:

Get emergency medical help if you have any of these signs of an allergic reaction to Neurontin: hives; fever; swollen glands; painful sores in or around your eyes or mouth; difficulty breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
Call your doctor at once if you have:

increased seizures;
fever, swollen glands, body aches, flu symptoms;
skin rash, easy bruising or bleeding, severe tingling, numbness, pain, muscle weakness;
upper stomach pain, loss of appetite, dark urine, jaundice (yellowing of the skin or eyes);
chest pain, irregular heart rhythm, feeling short of breath;
confusion, nausea and vomiting, swelling, rapid weight gain, urinating less than usual or not at all;
new or worsening cough, fever, trouble breathing;
rapid back and forth movement of your eyes; or
severe skin reaction -- fever, sore throat, swelling in your face or tongue, burning in your eyes, skin pain, followed by a red or purple skin rash that spreads (especially in the face or upper body) and causes blistering and peeling.

Storage:

Store at room temperature. Protect from heat, light and moisture. Keep away from reach of children.
