Trying another medication that will help my pain. I can only take it at night. It helps the nerve endings in the body, however it make you sleepy.

What is the med?

Haven't picked it up from the pharmacy. When I pick it up I'll post the name.

Hi Mochabarbee:)
I took Gabapantin for about 6-7 months and it helped me a lot at first but after a short while I had to go up on dosis and after that it kinda stopped working for me. It did make me very sleepy 😴 I really hope it helps you and (as you know) keep your Dr informed on how you are doing. Im very sorry you are having so much pain:( I'm sending you a virtual hug 🤗

Thank you! @Dilapidated4Now

@MochaBarbee I had the same experience as Dilapidated4Now I just stopped that med because it stopped working for me.

@MochaBarbee, I just started his medicine too but I was suppose to take 100mg 3 times a day. I rather take 300mg at night cause it makes me not have restless leg syndrome and it helps me to go to sleep.

@Painedlady I took it last night. I was sleep in seconds. My entire body was numb. I had to go to the restroom my husband had to help me because I couldn't feel anything. It made me go into a deep sleep. Other then the restroom I didn't wake up at all! I normally wake up in pain thoughout the night.

@MochaBarbee I think we might need to give this one a shot and see how we feel after a month of taking it.
