Gabapentin becoming scheduled as a drug of abuse

Recommended Pharmacies on Pharmacy Reviewer

While walking through an alley way near my house, I saw a pile of clothes and some other items like a bottle with sixteen 100mg gabapentin. I think this is the second time I've found a few in a bottle just on the ground, they must be abused rather moderately around here. I think I'll take a dose and re dose a few hours later to see if the buzz is worth it.

Regarding it's status, it's not a federally controlled substance, but it is a CV in the following states. That's how tramadol was, first was just an Rx drug, then individual states started to schedule it, and in 2014 it was added to the federal CSA. Nuerontin is just controlled in the following states:
  • Alabama.
  • Kentucky.
  • Michigan.
  • North Dakota.
  • Tennessee.
  • Virginia.
  • West Virginia.

@Blackbird123 Mmm, kind of, for some people. I tried it for that once, had to take a bunch, but it did help alot. Then another time i was out and tried it again and it didnt do much. So...a very firm "kinda maybe". =)

If your body metabolizes Gabapentin (unlike my body), then yeah I've been in detoxes where they give opiate "addicts" Gabapentin.

Gabapentin didn't do shit for me at 3,200mg a day for years!!! I felt nothing. I switched to Lyrica.

It reigns supreme because maybe my body metabolizes it and therefore keeps me away from any DT's/withdrawls from whatever medication (pick a "substance" off the tree...doesn't matter). Plus its fucking amazing for anxiety (if you take enough) šŸ˜‡ I hope you're safe!

Ps: I am NOT endorsing medication use nor am I suggesting to use ridiculous amounts of Lyrica. This is just what works for ME. I know we're all adults and can make our own decisions. What works for me might not work for another person āœŒšŸ¼
 
Makes little sense for me because pregabalin has greater abuse tendency IMO.

If it was on the ground with pills still in there, doesn't that seem like it's NOT being abused? I mean, when's the last time anyone found a bottle that had even one hydro/oxy/other opiate on the ground?
 
I've heard it's popular, the first time I found some, there was actually an empty Oxy bottle there as well. I know the local pain management writes them with PK's
 
@BKittie believe it or not I have on 2 occasions, about a decade ago I lived in an apartment building near a college so the end of every semester many people would move out and there'd be a bunch of stuff by the dumpster I'd always check and grab things that I'd be able to sell for a few bucks on craigslist people would leave things like perfectly functional vacuums, bicycles, etc. One year when snooping around for anything of value I opened a shoebox on top of a pile of boxes and someone threw out their unused prescription meds. There was a nearly full bottle of tramadol, hydrocodone 7.5mg with 6 left, full bottle of gabapentin, over a dozen xanaflex, and 2 lone .5mg ativan, as well as some antibiotics, Tylenol, and a few other common meds. Needless to say I grabbed the whole shoebox and took it to my apartment right quick in a hurry.
The other time was just walking down the street and I picked up a cigarette pack on the ground and it had 8 15mg green oxycodone pills in a baggie in there.
I always pick up cigarette packs on the sidewalk, worst case scenario you're picking up litter and occasionally there's a surprise in there

We have some things in common, I do this as well. I found a bag of weed in a Cig box once, also money, other things. Pharmacy Dumpster diving were where my best scores were. The gallon or two quart Tussionex bottles are the best thing to find in the entire dumpster of possible things, because it's very viscous, so even an empty bottle will have a good buzz just stuck to the sides. Rinse and enjoy. I found Lortab with coffee spilled on, and Soma I would find. I only found Valium twice.
