Also, i have been several times diagnosed with fibromyalgia, and cervical stenosis so, i have been taking anti-inflammatory meds, sometimes vicodin, and had been offered gabapentin. Because, I also have spasms and muscle weakness, after reading about the side effects, i will stay away from it.
That said, I recently stopped 300mg (once a day) of lyrica cold turkey with no problems (the doctor suggested it would be ok), but I went straight onto the Palexia to replace it.
But the doctor says they need to be attempting to treat my condition, in order to dismiss me from work.
So that all weighs on my mind. Presently receiving Social Security, (had cancer) but was supposed to be reviewed December 2014, but have heard nothing, so the benefits are also up in the air.
Let us hope we all live beyond 90 and feeling well!
I am not liking the way things are going right now.
Well, thinking further, If I want to try to give the Lycria a chance, what would you say, 2 weeks should l me if it is going to help, and the side effects will be torabable?
Hi,I've been on alsorts for chronic nerve pain and find gabapentin to be the best and would go so far as to say its a life saver (I started on 300 daily and now 2400),I too had a tough time with the side affects but if you stick at it your body will hopefully get used to them and life will go on as normal if not a bit different, its getting to the right level of gabapentinfor your pain and then the side affects but soon it becomes well worth it,this is just my opinion but I would say that one of the most important things with gabapentin is talking about the way you feel whether it be to your partner, doctor or just on here,I wish you all the best and have nice xmas.
The Neurontin, together with Meloxicam (an anti-inflammatory), together with a neck brace, has begun to make progress.

With the agent, the duration of paw licking following intraplantar capsaicin injection decreased in a dose-dependent manner. Gabapentin (25, 50 or 100 mg/kg) caused a significant rise in current threshold in a tail electrical stimulation test in mice, resulting in values of 20, 30, and 60.5% vs. The drug (12.5-50 mg/kg) increased the duration of catalepsy induced by haloperidol by 33.5, 47.4, and 53.2%, respectively. control values, 1 h post-dosing. Gabapentin, a drug used to treat neuropathic pain, was evaluated in models of acute nociceptive pain, in instances of haloperidol-induced catalepsy, carrageenan-induced paw edema, gastric lesions caused by indomethacin or ethanol, and gastric acid secretion in rats. Gabapentin (12.5-50 mg/kg) reduced the number and severity of gastric mucosal lesions induced by subcutaneous indomethacin (20 mg/kg) or intragastric 96% ethanol, but at doses of 50 and 100 mg/kg it increased gastric acid secretion. Reaction time in a hot plate assay was delayed by gabapentin. In contrast, gabapentin failed to have antinociceptive action in a mouse acetic-acidinduced writhing assay. It had an anti-inflammatory effect at doses of 25 or 50 mg/kg. The antinociceptive effect of the drug was produced with a dose of 12.5 mg/kg and a maximal increase in hot plate latency of 68% 1 h after drug administration was produced at 100 mg/kg. In conclusion, gabapentin decreased thermal, electrical, and chemogenic pain but not visceral pain and had a gastric protective effect.
