Gabapentin vs primidone
Patricia, I had a very strong reaction to primidone when I took my first tablet. Dizziness didn't begin to describe it. My doc had me skip the next night, then start again with a much reduced dosage. I started with 1/4 of a 50-mg tablet and that was OK. Gradually increased to 150 mg, then added 20 mg nadolol, and that was it - have been on that combination for many year, and unless I am sick or very upset my tremor is nonexistent.

Has any one experienced differently by the same dosage of Gabapentin but different Manufacturers
I thought it was just me, I noticed a big difference when I got my new script a different name and yes way, way less active, almost like I am taking nothing? hay maybe its flour, not a big trust for big Pharma LOL.
