MellowYellow Posted October 19, 2005 Share Posted October 19, 2005 I thought that gabapentin was supposed to make me all dizzy and sleepy like Topamax or Seroquel, but it's done nothing so far and I'm up all night AGAIN. I am starting out at 300 and increase to 600 in a week. Also, the pdoc says it helps pain, and I was hoping it would help my nighttime carpal tunnel which is excruciating. But I read that it helps shingles and post-herpes pain. Also, the literature says I could get swollen hands. I thought that carpal tunnel was from swollen ligaments, so I hardly need more swelling. Does it help other kinds of pain than what it claims? In addition, I've read here that it does something with liver enzymes. I just told my pdoc today I am having bad liver problems (dx'd with a CT scan; non-alcoholic type). What can I expect this stuff to do to my already strained liver? Thanks, all, I knew I could count on all you smart people. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
