Gabapentin Depression Reviews

Tue, 29 Nov 2011

Hello,
I've been taking a cocktail of meds for 9 years to help treat acute nerve pain from a severe Brachial Plexus nerve avulsion C 7, 8, T1 and Spinal cord injury.
Medications: Gabapentin 3600 mg., Methadone 100 mg. , Baclofen 20 mg. every 8 hours.
These meds keep the pain intensity down to a steady biting, stinging,aggravation with extreme spasms
about 30 times a day.
The side-affects from Gabapentin for me are simply mild groggy when I first take the meds. My heart goes out to Kathy dealing with her Depression, by the way is fueled by her Chronic Pain not Gabapentin.
The side-affects of Chronic Pain are losing parts of your life style that you ENJOY such as 1.Gym. 2.Socialize with friends. 3.Work and anything else you can't do as well because of Pain.

I take this because my stupid Indian doctor took me off of Klonopin and put me on Depakote. The Depakote damaged my liver and so he replaced it with Gabapentin. He said that he took the Klonopin because "it can be addictive". Lol. Well, I wander why? The drugs that have minimal side effects and actually work (such as Klonopin) are always noted by doctors to be "addicitve". News flash...it's because they work and don't kill you in the process. To anyone in my same situation, fuck the doctor and find a Marijuana dealer. It's cheaper and easier to get than legal medications such as Klonopin. Marijuana has now replaced my doctor and Gabapentin. I am such a happier person. Word of warning though, even though Marijuana is non-toxic, for some people it can give you anxiety. For me, it helps, but if I smoke a large amount then the anxiety does get worse. Smoke moderately and as needed only. I recommend using a vaporizer as well to make it even safer. My disorder: Bi-Polar Disorder, Borderline Personality Disorder, Depression, and Anxiety.
