I've been a heroin addict for about 10 years, I was recently prescribed Gabapentin for nerve pain due to the loss of two fingers as a result of a bad injection.
Having been using this site for many years I was aware of its potential to reduce opioid withdrawal.
What has startled me is its effectiveness, all mental and physical symptoms of withdrawal disappear with a large enough dose, including increased peristalsis and diarrhoea. However most physical symptoms seem to reappear on discontinuance.
So my question is could Gabapentin have mild opioid activity?
