I saw a news article relating this drug to suicide and attempted suicide.

I know the VA prescribes this medicine.

I know that drugs work in different way for different people. My daughter is bi-polar and took Neurtontin and did the sucide thing. She took the whole bottle. She was rushed to the emergency room and was given tons of charcoal. Her blood pressure went down to nothing.

She was finally stabilized, but spend the night in ICU. She was then transferred to a mental hospital for a weeks visit with shock treatments and other medications. She was immediately taking off Neurontin and doing well with her other medications.

I don't mean to say that anyone taking Neurontin will try to commit sucide, but wanted you to know that it has happened.

Josephine, I am sorry to hear that. Your case is difficult. Hang in there. By the way, The Attorneys are having a filed day with this activity. Just do a Neurontin search. I do wish you the best of luck and I will say a prayer for your daughter.

Thanks"jstacy", my daugher is out of the woods now, but I am glad that you posted the issue of Neurontin, as it is not a safe drug for everyone.

    • I would like to meet other Hadit members who live in Michigan.  We have at least two major VA Hospitals (Battle Creek, Ann Arbor).  Or maybe you go to the the John Dingell in Detroit.  

      I like Ann Arbor.  I like the fact that most of the doctors there are also at the UM Hospital.  I don't like how uickly they seem to turn over though.

    • Really?
      I am confused.  A few days ago I spoke to a person at a VARO who said if I die from something other than service-connected my husband gets zero, zilch, squat.  Hmmmmmm, it seems the rules change willy-nilly...I have been rated 100% P & T for over 10 years, MS is static, and I am 56 years of age.

      Can a fellow Veteran shed a light on this?

      Thank you.
