    Exclamation CP patients taking Gabitril

    I don't know how many of you on these boards are taking Gabitril off label for nerve pain, but I was just doing some searching again on the fact that people without epilepsy can have seizures by taking Gabitril. I was on Gabitril for several months, taking 24 mg at bedtime, when I received a notice from the pharmacy at Medco with a refill stating the FDA warning.

    I have told Marcia (Feelbad) who posts on these boards of this fact, but what I was just reading has prompted me to post another thread. If you have any doubts, I went to Google and searched for "seizures from Gabitril" and got a lot of information. I will give the link from the FDA warning about Gabitril, which was issued February 18, 2005. If you are taking Gabitril and are not taking it for epilepsy, I would urge you to contact your doctor immediately. [url]http://www.fda.gov/cder/drug/advisory/gabitril.htm[/url]

    Was Neurontin included in that info as well?

    No, to the best of my knowledge, it's just Gabitril. I'll do some more checking though and if I run across anything, I'll post it. You may want to do your own seach too.
