Iranian Study: Pain Associated with Heroin Withdrawal Is Greatly Reduced with Gabapentin

In the Iranian Clinical Trial, the effect of gabapentin to reduce withdrawal-related pain due to Iranian crack heroin use was confirmed. Hence, use of this drug for management of such condition is recommended.

Due to my street and housing education, I have become very close to and affected by young adults addicted to heroin. As I moved into the streets of Massachusetts combined with my stays at observation hospitals, relationships developed. Even though I have never experienced the high and the pain of heroin addiction myself, it is impossible not to get involved while surviving in the same space. Many of my the posts are formed by adults whose family member or their partner, brother/sister, cannot break away.  See Death of the Friends of a 27 Year Old.

I am writing this post in the beginning to June, 2016, and it was just two weeks ago I heard my old roommate at an Observation Hospital, Randy, just died. It is a fact that while chasing the high, the fear of the pain of coming down deters seeking any help.

Here is an Iranian Clinical Research study confirming the benefits of Gabapentin. Again, there is help at the end of the tunnel just like I pointed out in the post “Gabapentin Treatment for Alcohol Dependence;” the common denominator is “Gabapentin”.

Note: When we started this website, our intent was to deliver reality to you, the reader. While in the hospital in 2015 for Neuropathy and spinal pain, I was introduced to Gabapentin to reduce chronic pain. At that time, I discovered that if Alcoholism is a disease, Gabapentin is a cure for my desire for Alcohol, and I hope it stays that way.

Here are the conclusions of Iranian Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists.

Abstract:

Gabapentin seems to be a safe and well tolerated medication for treating heroin dependence. This study examined the efficacy of gabapentin for relieving withdrawal-related pain due to heroin use.

Conclusion:

In our survey, the effect of gabapentin to reduce withdrawal-related pain due to Iranian crack heroin use was confirmed. Hence, use of this drug for management of such condition is recommended.

IJPS is the official journal of Iranian Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists, an organization of scientists and pharmacists committed to the improvement of Pharmaceutical sciences through the advancement of research, academics, and scientific publications.

I ask you pass this information along through social media and to others you may know who would benefit from this information. It may just spare the torture a person may have to endure.
