Neurontin Diarrhoea Causes and Reviews


What is diarrhea?

Diarrhea is loose, watery stools (bowel movements). You have diarrhea if you have loose stools three or more times in one day. Acute diarrhea is diarrhea that lasts a short time. It is a common problem. It usually lasts about one or two days, but it may last longer. Then it goes away on its own.

Diarrhea lasting more than a few days may be a sign of a more serious problem. Chronic diarrhea -- diarrhea that lasts at least four weeks -- can be a symptom of a chronic disease. Chronic diarrhea symptoms may be continual, or they may come and go.

What causes diarrhea?

The most common causes of diarrhea include

  • Bacteria from contaminated food or water
  • Viruses such as the flu, norovirus, or rotavirus . Rotavirus is the most common cause of acute diarrhea in children.
  • Parasites, which are tiny organisms found in contaminated food or water
  • Medicines such as antibiotics, cancer drugs, and antacids that contain magnesium
  • Food intolerances and sensitivities, which are problems digesting certain ingredients or foods. An example is lactose intolerance.
  • Diseases that affect the stomach, small intestine, or colon, such as Crohn's disease
  • Problems with how the colon functions, such as irritable bowel syndrome

Some people also get diarrhea after stomach surgery, because sometimes the surgeries can cause food to move through your digestive system more quickly.

Sometimes no cause can be found. If your diarrhea goes away within a few days, finding the cause is usually not necessary.

Who is at risk for diarrhea?

People of all ages can get diarrhea. On average, adults In the United States have acute diarrhea once a year. Young children have it an average of twice a year.

People who visit developing countries are at risk for traveler's diarrhea. It is caused by consuming contaminated food or water.

What other symptoms might I have with diarrhea?

Other possible symptoms of diarrhea include

  • Cramps or pain in the abdomen
  • An urgent need to use the bathroom
  • Loss of bowel control

If a virus or bacteria is the cause of your diarrhea, you may also have a fever, chills, and bloody stools.

Diarrhea can cause dehydration, which means that your body does not have enough fluid to work properly. Dehydration can be serious, especially for children, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems.

When should I see a doctor for diarrhea?

Although it is usually not harmful, diarrhea can become dangerous or signal a more serious problem. Contact your health care provider if you have

  • Signs of dehydration
  • Diarrhea for more than 2 days, if you are an adult. For children, contact the provider if it lasts more than 24 hours.
  • Severe pain in your abdomen or rectum (for adults)
  • A fever of 102 degrees or higher
  • Stools containing blood or pus
  • Stools that are black and tarry

If children have diarrhea, parents or caregivers should not hesitate to call a health care provider. Diarrhea can be especially dangerous in newborns and infants.

How is the cause of diarrhea diagnosed?

To find the cause of diarrhea, your health care provider may

  • Do a physical exam
  • Ask about any medicines you are taking
  • Test your stool or blood to look for bacteria, parasites, or other signs of disease or infection
  • Ask you to stop eating certain foods to see whether your diarrhea goes away

If you have chronic diarrhea, your health care provider may perform other tests to look for signs of disease.

What are the treatments for diarrhea?

Diarrhea is treated by replacing lost fluids and electrolytes to prevent dehydration. Depending on the cause of the problem, you may need medicines to stop the diarrhea or treat an infection.

Adults with diarrhea should drink water, fruit juices, sports drinks, sodas without caffeine, and salty broths. As your symptoms improve, you can eat soft, bland food.

Children with diarrhea should be given oral rehydration solutions to replace lost fluids and electrolytes.

Can diarrhea be prevented?

Two types of diarrhea can be prevented - rotavirus diarrhea and traveler's diarrhea. There are vaccines for rotavirus. They are given to babies in two or three doses.

You can help prevent traveler's diarrhea by being careful about what you eat and drink when you are in developing countries:

  • Use only bottled or purified water for drinking, making ice cubes, and brushing your teeth
  • If you do use tap water, boil it or use iodine tablets
  • Make sure that the cooked food you eat is fully cooked and served hot
  • Avoid unwashed or unpeeled raw fruits and vegetables

Wed, 03 Nov 2010
Started with a reaction to Neurontin 300 middle of May, 2010. I was prescribed Neurontin and Lortab. The next morning woke up with swollen lips and eyelid. Had previously taken each of these, but not within last year. First took me off of the Lortab, swelling continued, then took me off of the Neurontin, swelling starting resolving, then returned, developed an extreme tiredness, sleepiness. In ( end of June) developed a blistered mouth, non-resolving, and a swollen membrane in left nostril. Was put on Nasonex. In July (end Of) developed Bad headache, extreme sore swollen throat, and swollen lymph nodes. Beginning of August, Dtr appointment, told mono like illness, streph throat test negative, mono spot test negative. Given Methlprednosine, and Augmentin. Got worse. Much worse. By third wk had swelling (water), from huge lymph nodes, and pain, burning, in my organs put on Acylovir. Sent to eye doctor, the virus was in my eyes, uritis? treated with steroid eye drops for 3 weeks, which probably saved my vision. At 4 weeks symptoms seemed to be starting to resolve...at 6 weeks starting breaking out in rashes and itching, and blisters on tounge. symtom fully back. new blood work showed chronic active EBV, and Active cytomegalovirus (the only two things tested for). In October diagnosed with Grade B esophigitis, sliding small hital hernia, diffuse erythema of mucosa stomach, intrahepatic and common bile duct dilation, colon diverticulitis, purpura, continued swollen sore throat and swollen neck glands. Now told eyesight will not return to pre viral state..permanantely changed. Also, some darkened skin pigments. Not sure what Medications caused what. sort of the perfect storm.. also, my grand daughter had been starying with me one or two days a week (in day care the other days) and got the swollen sore throat 5 days before I did). Now am going through all sorts of testing to make sure nothing else caused this... so that maybe, at some point, I can get some kind of treatment to make it go away. It is possible i have Chronic Immune disfunction syndrome (undiagnosed) from a previous menningitis. Also, the Chronic EBV was undiagnosed. If you have any suggestions, I would sure like to hear them at this point..
