Gabapentin does not really work

Pros: When I take them in the morning with my pain pills, they work for about two hours. Same thing after my afternoon and night pill.

Cons: I've been up today since 5:30 and they are not working at all. While getting a casserole ready for a brunch with the ladies, I could hardly stand that how much pain (I use pain since I really can not explain how they feel) I was in.

Overall: I have been on Gabapentin for over 5 yrs. Started at 300 mg 2X a day. then about two years later up to 3X a day. About six months later the changed to 600 mg 3X a day. Last fall I was changed to 800 mg 3X a day. When the Dr. does her feel test, maybe once out of four tries I feel her touching my feet. Any other time I feel nothing except pain, pins and needles in my legs and feet and swelling and burning of my feet. The Dr. told me she is considering changing my meds or sending me to see a specialist. With out my other pain medications I'm barely holding it together.

Long term use

Pros: At first it seemed to help a little but as time went on it stopped.

Cons: It really doesn't do anything for me now but the doctors keep me on 300 mgs 3 times a day. The tingling is stil there and I have lost all feeling in my feet.

Overall: It seems to work for some people but the side effects can be bad. You have to try it for yourself.
