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. :)

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.

    • Hi guys. It's me Jenny 😊I feel like I post every other day with problems or questions. Well I'm here again. I have this problem with my left leg (in particular) at night going numb it wakes me up in the middle of me sleeping and is difficult to fall back to sleep. It's not my bed mattress, it's not the location on how I sleep. I don't know what it is. It only happens at night. The neurologist said I was sleeping on my spine wrong because I sometimes end up on my back wrong! Happens just as much on my side. Don't know if this is celiacs related damage or something else my quality of sleep sucks! Any one experience this? Also I have a mysterious pain that started in my neck atleast 2 years ago got use to it but over the summer I noticed there was pain (unbearable) on the shoulder generating down to the wrist on one side. Any one know what this could be. My doctor diagnosed arthrits but I'm only 30
    • I have been gluten free for about 7 months. I had a check with my gastroenterologist at 4 months post endoscopy, and asked him to check my thyroid, iron, vit D and Vitamin B12 levels. They told me all were fine (which I found surprising, but I take vitamins). Shortly after that, my hair started to fall out like crazy. At first I thought it might be due to an accidental glutening in mid Sept, but it is still falling out. I finally did a hair count after yesterdays shower - 919 strands!  Thank goodness I (had) thick hair, but its getting noticeable. Coincidentally, yesterday I noticed bruising on my arms & don't remember hitting anything, but I remember getting bumped by someone. Could my iron change that fast? I'm looking for answers. Yes I use gluten free shampoo & product, but I dont know if my hairdressers shampoo is gluten-free. I only go there once a month though. Any ideas would be much appreciated! 
    • Just wanted to revive this thread with an update. My daughter's appetite/calorie intake is slightly better these days, especially in the morning--though overall I'd say that she usually still has to eat deliberately rather than out of true hunger. The main problem is that she still feels terrible most evenings. She often can barely tolerate dinner some nights (we don't force it, and she eats enough at breakfast/lunch/snack that she can do without major evening calories). She describes it as a general malaise, "like when you have a fever and you feel a little nauseous and bad all over, not really hurting in one specific place." No diarrhea, cramping, or other specific GI symptoms. It seems much more related to time of day than to anything in particular that she's eating. She's still eating no oats. She has a relatively low-lactose diet--a little milk in her morning smoothie (that doesn't seem to affect her at all), doesn't like yogurt, occasional hard cheese that would be low in lactose already. Her diet doesn't vary a lot right now. She uses ginger chews and ginger tea. We're exploring probiotics and did take them a few times, but her celiac specialist warned that some probiotics are grown on a gluten-containing medium and we are awaiting a list of approved probiotics from her nurse.  We are aware that there is probably an anxiety component--she's definitely anxious--but we also don't want to discount her symptoms after all those years of thinking she had a "nervous tummy" when it was really celiac. Does anyone have other insights or suggestions to help with evenings? thanks!
    • My daughter also loves to make ginger bread house every Christmas. I buy this gluten-free kit every December from a gluten free bakery called Sensitive Sweets.   They ship the kit to our house. http://www.sensitivesweets.com/holiday-items/gluten-free-vegan-gingerbread-house-kit
    • We are going to try to make our own this year, but I've seen some great gingerbread houses made out of graham crackers. There are plenty of gluten-free graham crackers out there--Pamela's are nice and sturdy for building! If you make your own, the nice thing is that you don't have to worry whether it tastes good.   https://www.happinessishomemade.net/make-graham-cracker-gingerbread-houses/   https://gfjules.com/recipes/gluten-free-gingerbread-house-how-to/ https://www.glutenfreebaking.com/how-to-make-a-gluten-free-gingerbread-house/
