Gabapentin vs primidone
Patricia, I had a very strong reaction to primidone when I took my first tablet. Dizziness didn't begin to describe it. My doc had me skip the next night, then start again with a much reduced dosage. I started with 1/4 of a 50-mg tablet and that was OK. Gradually increased to 150 mg, then added 20 mg nadolol, and that was it - have been on that combination for many year, and unless I am sick or very upset my tremor is nonexistent.

exalgo
Exalgo is very strong but it takes a few days to get up to full strength in the body. I take 2 oxycodone 10mg every 4 hours but after being prescribed exalgo 16mg I just take one in the morning and I'm good all day. Only need the oxy when break through pain gets tough.

Has any one experienced differently by the same dosage of Gabapentin but different Manufacturers
I thought it was just me, I noticed a big difference when I got my new script a different name and yes way, way less active, almost like I am taking nothing? hay maybe its flour, not a big trust for big Pharma LOL.

oxycodone/sleep apnea
It would be nice to have some kind of warning about comment length. Over half my last comment got cut off and lost, and nothing told me I had gone over any character limit. All that work, and pain, to type it out, and gone!

That's right. All opioids can cause central sleep apnea, do to their respiratory depression effect. All meds of any kind can cause various adverse reactions in some people. But different people do react differently to different drugs. It's a matter of you and your doctor deciding if the benefits outweigh the risks.

Although opioids do tend to give me apnea, I need the pain control, and so I accept the adverse effects. I take morphine, with oxy for breakthrough, because the methadone I used t

My daughter was on Oxy (presecribed by an incompetent GP) and after little over a year & Many pills later she became Psychotic from the meds. It was the only medicine she was taking & I watched the progression of the psychosis. I don't care what the drug companies Phony Reports say. Oxy Can Cause Psychosis---and it doesn't wear Off (even after the meds are stopped--we are over a year now!) and there Is No Cure. I hate the pharmaceutical companies they ruined my daughter's life--and her entire f

Also, I started out on 5 pain meds....down to just this one. And after being seen by a Maximized Living Chiropractor (beginning 11/2013) I have decreased the oxycodone by 30 pills a month - 3 months ago.

I am 45, female and have been on oxycodone for 9 years and do not have sleep apnea. The sleep study verified that. sorry, but meds don't have the same effect on everyone.
