Do you feel that gabapentin is helping you?

      It certainly takes the edge off but I honestly don't like this med, it is awful on my digestion and I'm a real space cadet

      Yes. It made all the difference for me. It will do until surgery.

      I didn’t have a good reaction to it. It didn’t help my pain levels and I lost some of my cognitive function the next day and had major brain fog.

      It works well for nerve pain but it’s not a good mood stabilizer.

      Not really but I tried stopping and weaned myself down to 100mg. Well, my pain got worse so I started taking again. It does something but not certain exactly What.

      I was referred to an orthopedic spine specialist but found out that my insurance wouldn’t pay for ANYTHING related to the spine. 😥

      It made all the difference in the world. No more radiating pain down my legs.

      I feel like it helps a little nothing really helps much I’m very frustrated right now with my primary and my pain management I’m supposed to get a nerve ablation again and I’m on blood thinner but my primary said I had been on them long enough to have it done and I can’t get anybody from either place to call me I’m pissed at all of them !!!!!!!

      I felt like it helped for a while. But I've been on it for years now, I dont think it helps any more. But last time they tried to give me a different med it made me so sick I'm afraid to try again

      Gabapentin made my hands tremble! I thought I had Parkinson’s. Stopped medicine and trembles stopped.

      I have been taking Tylenol Arthritis, really helps after a long day on my feet. Relaxes me!

      Same. What do you take that helps your back pain?

      I personally don’t like gabapentin. I don’t think it helps and I’m always dizzy, tired and feel kinda lopsided when I take it.
