Re: Neurontin
Jun 19, 2004
[COLOR=Navy];)[FONT=Microsoft Sans Serif] I have been taking Neurontin for about a month for nerve pain (I worked up to 300 mg. 3 times a day), and I would say that it helps, but not enough. I am going to ask my Dr. to increase it to 1200 mg. - three times during the day and another 300 mg. at night. At first it made me drowsy and dizzy (to the point of running into things), but the dizziness subsided and the drowsiness decreased. I sleep better now, but when I wake up early, I have trouble going back to sleep. I can tell when it's time for another dose of Neurontin, since the pain increases. I am also taking Norpramin, which helps, but is much less effective than Neurontin. Sometimes I still take Vicodin, a half pill at a time (which offers the best relief of all, with one side effect - constipation - too bad the Drs. are so reluctant to prescribe it), but that is mostly due to root canals which are still painful (another story!). So I am positive about Neurontin, since I appreciate any pain relief.[/FONT][/COLOR]
