Gabapentin


Overall: I was on 600mg, 3 x a day + 25mg 1 x day of Amitriptylin. Evidently, Gabapentin works best when combined with this original anti-depressant. Sorry to hear of your pain. Been there...

Gabapentin
 

Pros: This medication at first worked. I could tell a difference in my level of pain when I did not have this medication.

Cons: As time went on this medication stopped working.

Overall: I am currently taking 800mg 4 times a day. The VA says that this is the maximum dose allowed. I have been on this medication for 15 years now along with The 100mg of Tramadol every six hours as needed for pain. Neither of these medications are working. My pain is so severe at night that I lose a lot of sleep due to this. I have explained to my VA doctor that these medications have stopped working on me and that I need another approach. While I don't like narcotic pain medications I think that I need to look into something such as Hydrocodone low dose before bedtime. Nothing too extreme just something to take the edge off and help me sleep. The VA tried telling me that they don't write that kind of medication but I know better. People have a right to be out of pain. Its just so many people have abused the system that people who truly need that kind of medication can't get help with it. And even if they do they are looked at like criminals if they ask for it. Gabapentin while it may work for some it has stopped working for me. My quality of life has been dramatically changed because this medication has stopped working.
