Hello. Welcome to JA. I will review your statement and reply shortly. Please read this preliminary answer and respond. Dr frank
Hello. Your medications are gabapentin (what dose per day?), prednisone (what dose and for how long?) cyclobenzaprine and tizanidine (both? you should only be on one muscle relaxer). Using wellbutrin, tramadol, and the two muscle relaxers is not a good mix, and may have precipitated the seizure. I would ask you to go to tizanidine only, staying at 2 to 4 mg every 8 hours as needed for muscle spasm. Depending on your gabapentin dose, you might want to increase it to a therapeutic range of 900 to 1800 mg a day, in divided doses. Alternative medications for pain would be nucynta or tapendalol, which is like tramadol only much more efficacious. They have a sustained release form that helps much more than tramadol. Or Butrans patch, which is buprenorphine as a weekly patch for prolonged pain control. You need PT or an evaluation for your pain complaints as well. Please get back to me to discuss this further and I will respond dr Frank
This is a online answer service, it is against the law to write prescriptions for medications as there is no doctor/patient relationship, this is not face to face. Your alternatives it to find a pain management doctor in your area who can treat you, may use epidural steroid injections instead of oral steroids which is much more effective.
