Gabapentin vs primidone
I have been taking gabapentin for years. I was prescribed primidone which I took my first one last night. It made me very dizzy and ever this morning I feel a little dizzy. I wander if these 2drugs don't mix.
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.
