Tell me if the directions on a prescription bottle for Gabapentin, 100 mg makes any sense

Doctor's Assistant: What medications do you take daily? Are you allergic to any medications?

I take a long list and am allergic to a common anti-fungal foot ointment. I am trying to determine whether the written instructions make any sense, literally.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

Yes. I'm 81 and have a long list of diagnoses, including open heart surgery.

Hello - My name is ***** ***** I am a pharmacist with over 15 years experience. Thank you for the question and using JustAnswer.

There are a number of dosages and frequencies that can be prescribed for gabapentin, depending on the condition being treated.

What exactly are the directions on the bottle, and for what condition are you being treated?

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
