I’ve been doing a lot of research on Phenibut and many of the articles talk about pain killing properties. I have a cubital tunnel surgery coming up in a month and was wondering if what I’m reading is true?
I’ve spoken to my doctor and surgeon both have said that they have no problem with me taking it but don’t know if it will work. Also is it safe to take with Gabapentin, Oxycodone or Norco? Neither my hand surgeon or doctor could say since theres not enough research out there to say it’s ok or not. I’m going with not to be on the safe side; I just wanted to see if you had any idea’s since I can’t find information online.
Thanks in advance
Some users describe a “pain numbing” effect from Phenibut, but there are other anecdotal reports that suggest it can make muscle pain worse (https://www.reddit.com/r/Nootropics/comments/3hmw7w/psa_be_careful_with_taking_phenibut_if_you_have/)
Like your doctors said, there hasn’t been enough research into Phenibut to have a comprehensive list of interactions. There’s definitely potential for interaction with Gabapentin and it could result in feelings of drowsiness or excessive sedation if its combined with this drug.
I hope that helps!
