Omg!!! I've been on Gabepentin, 900 mg a day for 12 months! And Lamictal 150mg a day. Vistroyl 200mg a day, was on Effexor-depress too. Had severe sleep paralysis!! Terrifying!!! Off that, down to 1 300mg. Gabepintin, 50mg lamictal, 50mg vistroyl, going off all three completely! I'm 59, soon to be 60! I suffer with Fibromyalgia, Neuralgia, severe neck, back nerve, disc damage due to being hit twice by drunk drivers! Traumatic Brain injury at age 12! I suffer with RA as well! My hair is so thin, made my depression 100x worse!
I cry everyday!!! Hate to look in mirror! Scalp shows! Restless leh syndrome. Severe stroke on left side after 6 mo On all this med!!!!
Confusion, lost feeling, can't think clearly! Afraid to drive. And when I do, all of a sudden, nothing looks familiar!!!! Scares me to death! And I see that same scenery regularly! I fall a lot, due to off balance, equilibrium issues! Vision issues! Omg... on and On!
The side effects going off... can't sleep... losing weight... no appetite! Sleep deprived. Weak. Pain. But I'd rather go thru all this to get all out of my system... and try to be outside more, fill my awake time with brain challenging activities. Exercise, meditation, yoga, aromatherapy, music, to relax, to sleep... hot tea, pure cherry juice before bed, is excellent sleep inducer. Not cheap. But worth it. Very healthy! Try melatonin vitamins.
Definetly seeking lawsuit against "Gabepintin " drug, manufacturers!!!! Help!!! So sorry for all of you going thru this!!!
Should start my own wig company for people like us who've lost our precious hair!!!! Ty!
