I took gabapentin for nerve pain after back surgery.  The brand name is Neurontin but around my house we called it Morontin because, well, it made me a moron.  Okay, more of a moron.

Worked great for the nerve pain though.

My 16-year-old minidachs in on gabapentin. But I think he avoids methamphetamines, so we should be good.

My dog, when she was thirteen, tweaked a back leg. Went on gabapentin to manage pain. Afterwards, she could never recognize (remember?) where the car was parked.

Oh oh.  I just started on that stuff to help me sleep with a herniated disc that's making the end of my foot numb and the rest of the leg to not want to be comfortable.on one spot for too long.

a subsequent drug screening showed a laundry list of substances in his system, including methamphetamine, alprazolam, and clonazepam.


Add in a .50 caliber muzzle-loader and a feller could have a pretty good time in ...

just about anywhere there weren't security cameras, I guess.

Yeah, our old doggo is now on gabapentin and rimadyl for joint inflammation and pain. And because we put them in "pill pocket" treats, he thinks now every time he goes outside and comes back in, he gets a treat. The treatment has returned some normalcy. As in "it's ball time" All. The. Time.

As someone who deals with Gabapentin regularly, it should be regulated as a controlled medication. Without a doubt.

Not me.  I don't own a .50 caliber muzzleloader.  The transitional long rifle is .54 caliber, and the Baker rifle is .62 caliber.   Plus, I stopped hunting a few years ago.

As someone who has prescriptions for adderall and xanax, and was prescribed gabapentin after surgery, this is probably relevant to me. I never really thought it did that much for me. Certainly didn't make me a moron, or any more of a moron than I am normally.

As a pharmacy tech, I absolutely agree. It's controlled in a few states, but the way some people use it, it really should be federally controlled. I just hope it starts coming in 100 count bottles, because I do NOT want to have to double count 240 or 360 capsules from a bottle of 500.

"video showed Curry was alone when he pulled into the lot and jumped out of the truck, which he initially failed to put into park so it kept moving until he got back in and stopped it."

Even his truck is trying to NOPE! out.

I've been taking it for several years for panic attacks and it has been a life saver.  I've never noticed any side effects or any kind of high from taking it.  600 mg. twice a day.  My wife takes it for neuropathy at a much lower dose, 100 mg., and it works for her too.  A miracle drug as far as I'm concerned.

I take 600 mg 4 times a day. I occasionally have a drink but no ill affects. Perhaps moderation is key.

So do I, for pain in neck from a motorcycle accident.  Mrs SM-66 has always said I'm a goofball, even before I started taking it.  So, do with that what you will.

It absolutely does... 100ct and 90 ct and for the 300mg it comes in 270 and 180cts... If you work for a chain, they get the 500ct because it's probably cheaper for them.

Yikes.

I had one pill before a red eye flight from Seattle to Miami.  (Smaller dose, not a "bar".)
I just had one drink after takeoff, and I slept really well....didn't wake up until we were on approach.

No grogginess or anything like that...which was good because I drove down to Key West after arriving.

/And I usually ask for Clonazepam before flying overseas....just to help me sleep.

That's a really mild drug, I have to take it for some inner ear spasm that I have. I'm going to guess the meth might have more to do with hunting imaginary people.

1st med prescribed me for back spasms in 2016; still taking it throughout diagnoses of multiple myeloma, bladder cancer & metastasis on ME. Bladder cancer gone & L2 was killed w/radiation therapy. Those back spasms were 1st signs of cancer. My spine went from looking like a "touch of scoliosis" to a clef note hate-raping an ampersand. "Gabapentin: It's what's for breakfast!"

No, it really doesn't, and I say this as one of the gunniest gunners to ever gun a gun.

You really want to freak out a journalist (or gun-ignorant Farker)?  Point out that 12 gauge shotguns are  .729 caliber, much larger than .50 caliber.

Or, if you're really good, you can convince them that "223 is over four times bigger than 50".

One of the two mega chains. We have new filling stations without a scale, so the cost of the smaller bottles would probably be offset by the speed of filling. We're judged on all sorts of metrics (of course) but one of the biggest is "verified by promise time". At the very least we could use an oversized tray and spatula for counting 180+ capsules.

From what I recall Pink/white is .25 mg, Blue is .50 mg and white bars are 2 mg.

I was prescribed MAX 1.5 mg a day and I rarely got to that.

I think if I took like 5-10 mg I'd be dead.

600mg 3x a day for nerve pain. I used to take clonazepam and adderall but have since discontinued both for different reasons.

Gabapentin + alcohol + weed laid me out pretty good. I've pretty.much quit alcohol too.

I was also prescribed gabapentin for a back injury that was causing severe nerve pain (multiple herniated discs pushing on the L3 and L4 nerves). I was told it would help with the nerve pain and also help me relax to sleep. Not only didnt it do shiat for the nerve pain, it had me so farking wired that I couldnt fall asleep at all. Tried it again the next night with the same results and never took it again.

Instead, i got a state issued medical marijuana card, and bought some legit CBD and THC tinctures from a local dispensary. Between that and physical therapy, i made a full recovery in 6 months.

fark big pharma and their pill pushers masquerading as "doctors".

It does work great for nerve pain.  It didn't make me a moron or lose any ability to focus but it made it hard for me to remember things.  Like at times I couldn't remember names.; not even of family members.  I knew perfectly well who they were but I couldn't remember their name.  Then I started having other things just vanish from my head.  What convinced me to quit despite the pain was that on my way home from work I forgot where I lived.  I was literally driving home and suddenly though I knew I was on my way home and about half way there, and I knew the general area I was in, I had no idea where it was I was going. The incidents would last a minute or less so it wasn't terrifying but yeah...
