Neurontin Off Label Use Causes and Reviews


Normally, your cells grow and die in a controlled way. Cancer cells keep growing without control. Chemotherapy is drug therapy for cancer. It works by killing the cancer cells, stopping them from spreading, or slowing their growth. However, it can also harm healthy cells, which causes side effects.

You may have a lot of side effects, some, or none at all. It depends on the type and amount of chemotherapy you get and how your body reacts. Some common side effects are fatigue, nausea, vomiting, pain, and hair loss. There are ways to prevent or control some side effects. Talk with your health care provider about how to manage them. Healthy cells usually recover after chemotherapy is over, so most side effects gradually go away.

Your treatment plan will depend on the cancer type, the chemotherapy drugs used, the treatment goal, and how your body responds. Chemotherapy may be given alone or with other treatments. You may get treatment every day, every week, or every month. You may have breaks between treatments so that your body has a chance to build new healthy cells. You might take the drugs by mouth, in a shot, as a cream, or intravenously (by IV).

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..
