Does gabapentin raise bg?
I suspect not because quite a few people here use it with no issue. @Phoebes ?
And now he's low again, and gaba is probably out by now. Just a little weird.
Gabapentin I believe, lowers her bg, due to pain relief component.
Well, I don't know what is going on. AMPS 81, now +4 is 160. He had 2 treats and small piece of ham since AMPS. And last night went up after PMPS gaba.
Could be. I was telling @Amy&TrixieCat that the blood sample was teeny, so maybe that could have been a factor. But look at last night, I didn't get any tests beyond +3, but he was high then too. I started the gab last night at PMPS.
It is in a pill form right?
I have 4 different kinds but, yeah pill form last night and this am
How much is he getting? And what others do you get? I have gotten the oil compound, and now we do pill. Phoe be wouldn't touch the oil in her food.
He's getting 50mg. I started doing 2x a day. He's 21.8 pounds so hopefully they dosed correctly. I have cherry compound, chicken compound, capsules, and pills. The compounds he hates squirted in his mouth. The capsules are 100m and have to be opened and put in food. He hates that and won't eat the food, plus really hard to halve that. By chance I asked my old vet and they had a 50mg pill!
It has helped Shoes' blood glucose stabilize and drop somewhat. He gets it 2 X day. I have it compounded into chicken flavor liquid.
Interesting. Seems to lower or stay the same for all. Wonder what is going on with my guy then. How do you give the compound? In food or squirt in the mouth?
It is in a syringe and I squirt it into his mouth.
