Is it best to stagger new medications, i.e. start one a week or so before introducing another. I have started Gabapentin and have Baclofen prescribed. Maybe I should wait to add Baclofen until I've gotten to a full dose of Gabapentin?
If possible, yes: It is helpful if your Doctor agrees-let them know and discuss with them, as if you start both meds at the same time, you may not know which one genuinely helps and or if you get an adverse reaction/side effect, you would not know which one caused it, etc. Best wishes. ...Read more

How is topical baclofen cream metabolized? Does it still work on your CNS and metabolized through the kidney? What about topical gabapentin?
Transdermal- topical: A topical application of a medication to the skin is used solely for its local effect at the site of pain generation. While transdermal medications are also applied directly to the skin, their target site of action can be distant from the site of drug application. The site of activity of a transdermal drug is not achieved locally, but systemically. The drug is pushed into a blood stream. ...Read more

May be useful: Have found Baclofen to be handy as a second or third line drug in those who have not readily responded to the initial meds. Find both Gabapentin and Lyrica (pregabalin) to be of great value, but never use Dilantin for trigeminal neuralgia. If you must use an archaic drug, might choose tegretal or trileptal, but i really am concerned about side effect tolerance with these, but they do work. ...Read more
Good Question: Most substances to be addictive must be shown to be associated with a Dopamine release in the brain's reward centers. I'm not aware of evidence for that with Gabapentin but nonetheless it is for some a potent anti-anxiety agent, so it doesn't surprise me that addictive like patterns can emerge. If that's the case it is time to look for other ways to safely and effectively address the anxiety. ...Read more
Gabapentin : Gabapentin is used to treat partial seizures, pain related to post herpetic neuralgia as well as neuropathic pain. While it does modulate the activity of the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain, gaba, it's mechanism of action is significantly different from that of a benzodiazepine or barbiturate. As a result does not result in physiologic dependence. ...Read more

Gabapentin SEs: Sedation is a common side effect of gabapentin. Each person will be somewhat different in their sensitivity to this SE -- but it does occur. Some patients may adjust to the medication dose, and find sedation less problematic with time. Or perhaps taking most of the dose at bed would help. Contact you're prescribing MD to arrive at the best solution for your particular case & be well! :) ...Read more

No studies: There are no human studies of Gabapentin use during pregnancy, but animal studies have shown fetal problems. There have been delayed ossification in skull bones, vertebrae, and extremities. Hydroureter and hydronephrosis have also been reported in animal studies. These results mean Gabapentin should only be used in pregnancy when benefit clearly outweighs risk. Discuss with your doctors. ...Read more
If tested for: Neurontin (gabapentin) is a non-controlled/non-scheduled/non-addictive medication that is not metabolized by the liver at all and excreted unchanged by the kidneys/renal system. If there is a reason to measure the level, Gabapentin can be measured in the urine. Because it is not controlled there would be no basis for it to be part of a standard urine drug screen. ...Read more
