Is it possible to suddenly become allergic to medication I have been on daily for two years (100mg gabapentin) or is it something else cause allergy?

Is it possible to suddenly become allergic to medication I have been on daily for two years (100mg gabapentin) or is it something else cause allergy?

Unlikely: A 41 year old female on gabapentin for 2 years now having an allergic reaction. Unlikely to be due to the gabapentin now. If you had atopic dermatitis as a child, now a new skin rash could be a flare of atopic dermatitis or a new onset contact dermatitis to an exposure. Could also be an allergic reaction to something in the environment - insect bites, other irritants. ...Read more

Been taking gabapentin 100mg once daily for 2 yrs. Started having sudden allergy to it, itchy all over and random bumps on my calf. How do I wean off?

Been taking gabapentin 100mg once daily for 2 yrs. Started having sudden allergy to it, itchy all over and random bumps on my calf. How do I wean off?

Homeopathic Rx: If you are reasonably healthy at all at 41 years of age, gabapentin 100mg twice daily is almost of no benefit therapeutically and virtually not affecting you systemically. You could stop the gabapentin immediately and most likely suffer no side effects. If that concerns you, take one capsule daily for 3 days then stop completely. If there is no improvement in your rash--likely another allergen. ...Read more

Not knowing from: Where you're contacting Health Tap, it wouldn't be practical to give you a referral, if that is indeed what you want. Whoever performed the nasal patch may be better able to guide you to appropriate specialists. Generally, university settings have specialists whose main focus is more narrow than those in community hospital systems. Best wishes! ...Read more

Docs, could 400 mg Neurontin (gabapentin) get you high?
