My husband uses CBD &THC at bedtime and it has really helped him sleep. He usually has pain from neuropathy that keeps him awake but this combination keeps him pain free. I use it during the day as I take 300mg of gabapentin at bedtime and I read you can't take CBD & THC with it. I am having a lot of pain at night – especially in my hands. Do you know if CBD & Gabapentin together cause problems? Thanks
@jmb73 I have taken Gabapentin and CBD with THC many times, without any problem. Everyone is different, but they were fine together for me. I have gotten off Gabapentin because for me, it was not helping. Now I only use medical marijuana and CBD oil together. Much more helpful. Lori R.
@jmb73, And I agree with @lorirenee1 My first medication was gabapentin. I was already using medical cannabis for pain, That is still my guarantee for restful sleep.
Be safe and protected. Chris
I will call my doctor to see how to come off gabapentin. Thank you all for your help.
I just starting taking Diclofenac Sodium Topical Gel 1% and soon as starting using it on my spine and hip my pain was reduced to a level 2. The first night I used it I had the best sleep I've had in two years and I didn't even realize I didn't have any pain that would suddenly wake me up in the night and I have to jump out of bed. It's worth trying as it's working for me and maybe we can help you all with your night pain or just pain. If you read about this drug you'll find that they only suggested using it for knee, ankle and hands, but there have been some treatment for back. It is for joints and your back has many.
Hi donfeld from Georgia from Australia . Regarding pain. I hired 4 specialists.(all in the same hospital) One Orthopedic for bones. One Neurologist for nerves, and one Pain management guy, and one Nephrologist for painpill management as they go through my kidneys. Keep them connected by sending an Update of what goes on to each. They sorted out the bone, the nerve, the place and while they "fussed around testing" the Nephrologist kept the 10/10 pain out of the way. Yes, you need a team. Keep on them for a solution, not just pills, exercise and walkers etc…. get it figured and done–gone. !!
Yea, but they do not want to talk about Arachnoititis Adhesive! It seems it is off limits as there is no procedures and there no $.
All those I know is gabapentin especially nerve medication’s doesn’t work well with THC. I cannot take gabapentin or any anti-depressant medication along with marijuana as it makes me real dizzy and creates more problems. If you’re on opioids makes it even worse.
I agree,too much THC gives me bad dreams, CBD is good with only a tiny amount of THC.
I use diclofenac 10% for hip pain and it does very little for me. The pill form called arthrotec is better but is hard on your stumack
