This is the generic for Neurontin, and I have just been prescribed it for FM. Wondering if it is gluten-free, on the Alpha Drug List it is listed, but it does not reference this manufacturer.

Any help will be greatly appreciated, thanks :)

Hi Miriam: I would suggest firing off an email to them: nfous@actavis.com and asking them.

Thanks Mushroom, I will send them an email, I have their phone number also but I was hoping of being able to take one tonight. No choice but to wait until tomorrow, It's unfortunate that we have to go through all this hassle over medications.

I used to take it and it was gluten free. However, you must contact the manufacturer for every batch just to be sure. Hope it works for you. Unfortunately it did absolutely nothing for me. :( Let us know how it goes - I am always curious about others who are prescribed it.

Thanks for the update Kuhar, I am still waiting for a response from Activis. If it is gluten-free and it works, I'll post about it. :)

Yes - please do! I wish you great success with it. :)

I took up to 2000 mg a day. No help after 9 months. I still have a bunch I try every so often when I'm in more pain then usual.

Same here. The 2000 mg did nothing but make me feel like a stumbling dork, bumping into walls and such. I tried another again two nights ago (I am always hopeful!) and it did not help.

Really? Flexeril did absolutely zero for me, either. Happy it works for you! Hopefully some day I can find something that helps - I've tried over 20 meds. :mellow:

Yes, guess I am lucky in that sense, I can not take any narcotics. I also have a very high tolerance for pain, as long as the medications takes some of the edge off, I have learned relaxation/meditation techniques that help me manage the rest. It took a long time to learn how to truly relax, but so far so good.

I have Osteoarthritis, Bursitis, FM and a lot of other issues, it all started about 7 years ago, at the same time that my body rejected "the evil Wheat", I always had some symptoms of Celiac, but never to the degree that it presented itself then.......Perimenoupase, and Celiac came at the same time :wacko:

Have you ever tried relaxation/meditation?

Hi Love2Travel

Have you tried Tizanidine? It's an alternative to Flexeril (muscle relaxer ). It works some for me. Along with some tramadol it takes the edge off.

Hi, Colleen. I've used both Tizanidine and Tramadol together and it did nothing. I could not even tell I was taking anything! <_<

But my pain goes well beyond FMS. I have chronic back pain from herniated disks, IT band syndrome, chostocondritis (chest), arthritis, etc. And I am still young (relatively). :( I go for weekly massages, have seen the chiro when necessary, done pilates, swim, had laser therapy, physiotherapy, acupuncture and so on. I was hoping that once I was gluten free things would improve but they have become worse the last few months.

    • Please help,  I am 30.All my life from childhood I had upset stomach pain and cramps.As a child was frequently treated for giardia and still had cramps.As a child so strange I had bumps with water on skin.Not redness nothing else.Just bumps filled with water all over my body.Later I never had these.But in my early teens I started with fatigue anxiety.Then extreme fatigue.Hair fallen.Eyebrow loss over a few years to nonexistent eyebrow.Always low iron even with supplementing.Low vitamin D3.Low calcium and magnesium.Gastrointestinal for a few months now I have cramps daily.Diarheea almost daily.Treated for parasites and giradia.nothing changed.

Petechiae small red spots all over my body this is for years now. Tried gluten free even though in my country very hard to keep up with this. Only for few days then gave up and tried again and so on. Did some blood work but only 2 antobodies and not IGa and Igg judt one of them.Negative.this was two years ago. I don't know what to do. Oh and mouth ulcers. And have gas i am afraid because i can hardly control because i am extremely bloated. I am desperate. Thanks.  
    • I know this thread is very very old, but I want to suggest one thing to tired people. Get a sleep study. Sleep apnea is something that can cause you to be very tired, and it can kill you. A sleep study is super easy and the cost of an office visit copay. It's easy to treat with cpap and it's amazing how much better you feel.
    • Hi Monica I hope you are feeling better now.  In any case, your post made me think of something I have been reading about lately - Dr. Satsha Gominak's work. It connects sleep disorders and body aching. She corrects it by tightly controlling the levels of vit. D and B complex. Be aware that this can be caused not only by too little panthotenic acid, but also too HIGH panthotenic acid supplementation. And we celiacs sometimes rely too much on our suplemments.. I am guilty too.  Unfortunately, she is not the most straightforward speaker but her work is very eye opening. Please look into it.   
    • Always carry lots of gluten-free snacks whenever you travel, on the flight and elsewhere. Sometimes you are hungry and need something right away and it's too hard to find a place to accommodate ! I always packed one suitcase of food, which also included non gluten-free snacks for my 3 boys. We are always very thrifty, lol.
    • You may want to keep a food and symptom journal. Our reactions can be delayed and that can make it hard to pinpoint what 'got' us. A journal can help you see a pattern and help us figure it out. Enjoy that pudding.
