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

After DRESS syndrome felt due to a spinal orthopedic implant, the implant was removed but the patient developed body aches, electrical sensation.....?

Cobalt Chrome Allergy: This is a difficult situation as removal of the implants does not mean that all of the cobalt has been removed. I am aware of two types of facet replacement and both utilize metal on metal technology that will result in metal and ionic debris that can still persist after the implants have been removed. Given the severity of your symptoms, small amounts of retained cobalt in scar tissue around the implants is likely the source of continued symptoms and there are no reliable methods to eradicate any remaining metal deposits.

The lateral thigh symptoms are consistent with compression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerves and the most common cause is from positioning during lumbar surgery in the prone position. ...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?

Some people feel sedated, cloudy, or "doped up" on gabapentin, ; they might call this "high." but the same is true of over-the-counter cold tablets. Research on altered states suggests that expectations ; the setting play a big role in whether a drug user feels "high." using Neurontin to get high is not a good idea. ...Read more
