I know that Gabapentin works great for neuropathy. I take 2400 mg. and it works wonders. I don't have very much pain during the night, which was a real problem for.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Lyrica in December and Pfizer sells it in 25 mg to 300 mg oral capsules. Lyrica is Pfizer’s third highest.
I was taking Lyrica and was still in pain, my doctor switched me to Gabapentin and at first I thought it was better. But a year and a half later I feel like the side.
I get it from the pharmacists who fills my meds never from my doctor thoughfrom people who know i am on them.

Hi Auntniknik, I've not seen you in ages! It is completely unfair to limit 'addiction' to opiates, when anti depressants and benzos escape these stigmas, yet are just as lethal when used improperly and many DO use them improperly, not to mention that withdrawal from some of these medications can cause dangerous rebound, such as SEIZURES. I have had the side effect of dry mouth. I really am at the end of my tether and rarely go out any more as I also have extreme sun sensitivity caused by Prednisolone the nerve problem then started when I came off this steroid so damned if do and damned if don't. I think the inner war that many of us deal with on a daily basis when it comes to what medications we need to take, even when those medications are the ONLY alternative given, is really unfair, and extremely stressful for chronic pain patients who would do just about anything to be well, to be productive, to live life in peace and without high volume pain everyday.
