I was prescribed Gabapentin a few months ago. 300 mg, one with each meal and two before bed. I'm also prescribed tramadol 50 mg that I also take before bed.
I've been taking this for chronic lower back pain along with numbness and tingling in both of my legs. This has been going on for 2+ years. I've seen multiple doctors and I've gotten a different answer each time. My pain specialist said that my leg pain is sciatica but I currently do not have a legitimate diagnosis. But onto my question, can I be in a nursing program or even practice nursing at all while on these meds? The tramadol like I said I only take when I go to bed, and I have built up a tolerance to the gabapentin like my pain specialist told me to. I'm not impaired at all while on these meds. I'm an alternate to the program I applied to and I'm just worried that all of this is going to ruin being a nurse for me
