Gabapentin

Gabapentin

Anyone used Gabapentin for chronic pain. Just had to come off Codeine and Tramadol and Doctor has given me this to try. What can I expect?

Tell them it doesnt work, that med is for your brain. Google search " CDC advises against misapplication of the guideline for perscribing opioids. Print it out and show it to your doctor to try to get real meds back

I've used it off & on since I began having issues with my neck in 2011. It works for my nerve pain. I have to take narcos for the rest of my pain so between the 2, I've got my different pain types covered.

I take Gabapentin and hydrocodone. The Gabapentin is for nerve pain, and the hydrocodone is for the rest of my pain. I'm still in lots of pain.
