Discussions that mention methadone

Addiction & Recovery board


Hi Trivial...I have been taking Gabitril for about eight months now. When my doctor put me on the medication he said it was a new and improved version of Neurontin. I take 24 mgs. at bedtime. He started me at four mgs and titrated up to 24. The bottle has a little stickey on it saying it may cause drowsiness...etc. and it is suppose to help with nerve pain. I have chronic pain and my main medication for it is Methadone. I haven't noticed any big changes since I started taking it, but depending on what it is being RXed for could make a difference. It was orginally put on the market for Parkinsons.

Please let me know if I can answer any specific questions you might have.
