    [USER=”935″]drtowfigh[/USER] what is your opinion on gabapentin? a doctor recommend it to me and I’m really nervous because most people seem to have bad side effects. and I’m sensitive to medications. Is there any natural way to get the same effect as gabapentin?

    anyone else try this medication? experience?

    I have tried gabapentin, but it didn’t reduce my pain – my pain is less neuropathic. If you’re having some kind of neuropathic pain, you may benefit from gabapentin. Regarding side effects I didn’t experience any major other than being a bit more tired in the morning. It is important to start at a low dose and increase gradually to minimize side effects. Your doctor should know about this.

    Gabapentin did absolutely nothing for me. No side effects but also no help with pain.
