Neurontin/gabapentin

Recommended Posts

My local pharmacy sells this in strip of 10x300mg for 100 baht

 

Is there any way to get it cheaper and in large amounts?

Be very careful of gabapentin if you have Tinitus[ ringing or whistling in the ears] i do but at a low enough level i can usually ignore it,however when i took gabapentin  it increased to an unbearable level,i could barely hear anyone talk.the only solution that night for sleep was to get so drunk i never made it to the bed,but collapsed in a drooling mess on the floor,it took a good 36 hours to leave my system so just a warning to any Tinitus suffers,sorry to go off topic a bit Cyril.

neurontin is costly because impirted.

 

Local brands are not cheap, but less than Neurontin;

 

Gabapentin GPO

Berlontin

That's Bht 10 a tablet, Bht 300 ( 6 beers) a month. How much cheaper do you want it to be?

Send an email to SC Pharmacy in Bangkok (or visit them on Rama IV near Suriwong):  [email protected]  They have Gabapentin GPO 300 mg for 600 baht per box of 100.  They will ship.

may I ask why you take Gabapentin.... the reason I ask it's because I had the shingles and the doctor gave it to me to relieve the pain and allow me to sleep at night....it finished went to the pharmacy bought some more and kept using it (1 x 300 mg/day) for 1 month and half, then started to have swallow legs/feet, blood in the stool, easily running out of breath, easily irritated, mood swings and some other symptoms that let me to immediately stop using it..... shingles had been around for 5 months, same days lots of pain,  some other days barely noticeable pain, thus started to take ibuprofen 1x 400 mg and 1 x 600 mg thus 2/ day,  took it close to 2 months, it screw up my stomach, now have acid reflux, GERD, burping, difficulty swallowing food/drinks, sore throat... hope you don't have same side effects as I had/have
