I just started with Gabapentin today. Praying for pain relief! Any advice about it?

      you're gonna be tired for a few weeks and it's the best sleep you'll ever get in your life. the only time in my entire 23 years of life someone has said I looked well-rested was when I had just started gabapentin and was sleeping like 20 hours a day. even once the comatose stage of side effects passes, I've never had anything be nearly as helpful, not even opioids. if I run out of gabapentin for a day or two, I cannot move, I cannot cry, I cannot even breathe without insane pain. with it, I can do a task every single day, sometimes even two or three. I could sing its praises for days tbh

      I went on it in October. I really like it. The only issue I've had has been with drowsiness, so I'm careful how much I take during the day so I'm still safe to drive and work. The higher the dose for me, the drowsier I am. 💕

      Don't know what I'd do without it. Been on it for 27 years. Helps with pain and neuropathy...
