nuerontin dosing

Posted by rjlockhart37 on January 1, 2021, at 14:10:44

i'm on 600mg X 3 daily, and ... my doc says im on the maximum dose. I had a previous doctor who wrote me a script for 800mg X 3 daily for anxiety, then i went into a psych later on that year after i was discharged, and theey bumped it to 800mg X 4 daily. I did research on nuerontin, it treats nerve pain, and some other disorders that are related to nervous system. But ... most of them stay at 2000-2400mg

I'm 1800mg, and i know that ... i'm not max dose. Like i said at 800mg X 4 daily i was on in 2009. Something also with gabapentin vs lyrica that gabapentin's bioavailablity is low, and the higher dose lower availability. That's why lyrica is much better than nueontin

On the nerve pain, it does go up to 800mg X 4 daily, 4 tablets spaced out. But ... for some reason doc says im on max dose with 600mg x 3 daily

anyone know about dosing?

Gabapentin inhibits its own uptake. It is fat soluble. Therefore, after food, take 300mg. Wait one hour, take 300 more and so on.

Does it make your feet swell up? That's the limiting factor for me.

i'm on 600mg x 3 daily, it's 1800mg total, but before i went to a doctor that immidantly wrote a script for 800mg x 3 daily - he was generous with alot of meds, but it shocked me to be on 800mg on the first dose. Then i went into a psych yes moved to 800 x 4.

Anyways, that was 10 years ago. I reada gabapentin the bioavailty is low the higher the dose.

I just take 600 in morning, afternoon and night. It's adequate but it doenst help all the anxiety my doctor refuses into increase the dose. Sucks...they pulled me diazepam, after that phenibut withdrawl from hell.
