Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

I got so pissed off I lost composure yelling thru my scarf. I pulled thru and waited until they called and cancelled the first RX. The whole system is broken and the doctors are unaware of the process to be able to assist patients. But it worked. You knew what you needed and insisted you get it. Ho...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

I got my McLean, VA neurologist to call a RX to a CVS with a drive thru. When I drive up they told me I couldn’t get the RX as another RX exists at the first CVS. I got so pissed off I lost composure yelling thru my scarf. I pulled thru and waited until they called and cancelled the first RX. The wh...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

Here I am isolated at home with my wife and two daughters. My neurologist called in a RX of gabapentin but CVS won’t ship it to my house like other medications because Gabapentin is a controlled substance. I’m 48, obese with high blood pressure; high risk for COVID, yet I can’t get my prescribed me...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

It sure seems twisted, doesn't it? Maybe your quickest solution is the one you suggested, to get the doc to re-send to a pharmacy that does drive-thru pickups. I just tried to register with express scripts. It prompts for member I’d or social security number. I used social security number and regis...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

Another option is to have your doctor sent the prescription to a mail order pharmacy, such as Express Scripts. Express Scripts sends all sorts of controlled substances to me through the Postal Service or parcel delivery companies like FedEx and UPS. The problem is that it can take about two weeks t...

Re: CVS Won’t Ship Gabapentin to House

I’m compromising asking the doctor to resend the RX to a CVS with a drive thru.

I can’t buy an N95 mask as they are reserved for people working in high risk jobs.

In the end the doctors get paid and the person is left to fight for sufficient treatment.

Re: RLS while laying down? Then Sleep On An Incline

Night two reveals RLS symptoms until I take my two Aleve so incline isn’t as effective as thought.

RLS while laying down? Then Sleep On An Incline

Last night I experimented: If RLS bothers me lying down then what happens if I sleep upright? I slept on the corner of the couch where the head is above the heart, heart above the waist, waist above the legs and legs above the feet, possibly a 20 degree incline. I fell asleep sleeping uninterrupted ...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

I am stable on 1200mg of Gabapentin in concert with 4x50mg of Tramadol as long as I don't get dehydrated. I do feel the Gabapentin truly wear off the following day around midday or late afternoon. I'm not sure if I'll entertain Mirapex for that. Neurologists Response Hello, prescripption for gabapen...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Though the 1200mg of Gabapentin and 200mg of Tramadol work to fall asleep I am delusioning myself to believe it is enough. I woke up at 3am as my RLS symptoms crept in again. And 3pm today I was lounging and my RLS kicked in. I need to take something from noon onward to help treat the RLS that kicks...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Well, the stable dose for my RLS is 4x50mg of Tramadol and 4x300mg of Gabapentin. I have to take it 4 hours before I have to fall asleep and it wears off about 3am. I would like to have a 5th tablet of Gabapentin in my daily regiment but my Neurologist may not be supportive. "Hello, It is not g...

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

I spoke too soon. My RLS symptoms came back when only taking 3x50mg of Tramadol and 900mg of Gabapentin. I have taken my 4th tablet of Tramadol in an effort to get to sleep. My psychiatrist tells me the sky is the limit on Gabapentin as you can't take too much Gabapentin.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

Stable dosage: The 900mg of Gabapentin helps significantly with my RLS but again only if I keep taking Tramadol. I tried to take only 2 tramadol and my RLS symptoms came back. So, the stable dosage for me is 900mg of Gabapentin and 3x50mg of Tramadol.

Re: Quitting Neupro Cold Turkey

10:39pm, My RLS came back so 4 x 50mg of Tramadol and 3x300mg of Gabapentin doesn't resolve my RLS symptoms in my legs after going to sleep. I guess I'll have to go back on Neupro.
