Neurontin Pictures and Important Information.
Neurontin Generic (Gabapentin).
Neurontin in Australia is used to treat epilepsy and neuropathic pain. Gabapentin can be used in combination with other antiepileptic drugs. Neurontin is also used to relieve the pain of postherpetic neuralgia. Use this drug for indications only in cases where it is assigned to a doctor. Neurontin is used for oral administration simultaneously with the meal. Neurontin Dosage depends on your state of health and individual responsiveness to treatment. In the early days of the drug your doctor will gradually increase the dose so that your body can adapt to the treatment. To minimize side effects, take the very first dose at bedtime. In epilepsy for adults and children over the age of 12 years, the effective dose - 900 mg to 3.6 g / day. Therapy can begin with a dose of 300 mg three times daily for the first time or increased gradually to 900 mg. Subsequently, the dose may be increased to a maximum of 3.6 g / day (divided into 3 equal doses). The drug was well tolerated at doses up to 4.8 g / day. The maximum interval between doses in the triple dose of the drug should not exceed 12 hours in order to avoid the resumption of seizures. For the best effect of the drug, take it regularly. The best effect is achieved if the content of gabapentin in the body is maintained at a constant level. It is important to take gabapentin at regular intervals throughout the day. Do not increase the frequency of administration or the dose without consulting your doctor. In epilepsy abrupt withdrawal of the drug can lead to deterioration. You may need a gradual reduction in dose. Prior to the administration of the drug will notify the attending physician on existing and past your past illnesses, especially chronic renal failure. This drug may cause dizziness or drowsiness. Limit alcohol while taking Neurontin. We do not recommend taking Neurontin during pregnancy.
