Yes: Fibromyalgia has no specific effect on intestinal function, but all narcotic pain relievers are constipating. Drinking more water and taking a stool softener or fiber supplement is usually adequate to correct the problem. With long term use, the constipation may go away.

Don't!: Gabapentin is an anti-seizure medication and is used for nerve pain. At 3200mg/day, you are at higher dose for gabapentin. You need to be weaned off Gabapentin if desired.

Had to split a gabapentin til pharm opens. Took half powder from broke open capsule. Stomach burning, nausea, diarehha all day. Could this be why?
No: The capsules dissolve in the stomach to release their medication. The medication from an opened capsule arrives in the stomach without its capsule. There is no difference. The only exception would be time release capsules which are composed of small microspheres designed to dissolve over different lengths of time. In taking only part of the contents you may not get immediate results. ...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.

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
