Recently a family member was admitted into a mental health hospital and they gave him venlafaxine er and Gabapentin. They gave the Gabapentin because he complained of pain. The issue now is whether the pain was mostly mental or if their is a physical ailment that he needs that medicine for.
He does have a doctors appointment on Monday so maybe we will get answers there. Still reading that this medicine can cause suicidal thoughts and other issues. So far he does seem to be drowsy at times and sometimes out of it. Doesn't complain of having suicidal thoughts but complains of negative thoughts. Reading up on this is making me wonder if the gabapentin is making it worst or not.
I probably shouldn't be so worried initially as I've read that it can take several weeks for any of these meds to truly kick in. Still I don't want him to continuously take a medication that he might not need.
