Gabapentin Review
| Steve
Doctor prescribed 300 mg at bedtime. Helped the neuropathy pain considerably. Also was taking 20 mg percocet,10 mg morning, 10 mg afternoon. By the end of third day side effects were horrible. Felt like electrical impulses going through my body. Very, very bad. Thought about going to ER. My eyes even hurt. Friend gave a tranquilizer to me and I went to bed. Electrical feeling went away gradually over next 36 hours. Wish I could have continued but side effects much too severe.

I have neuropathy and recently had a pinched nerve. Nothing stopped the pain of the pinched nerve, but gabapentin did. My doctor upped the regular dosage by prescribing an extra pill at night, pain went away.
