The healing benefits of Neurotin were apparent from the first day of taking the medication. The numbness and pain in my hands and forearms disappeared first and my toes followed. The severe hyper sensitivity of my legs took just a few days to calm down. It was nothing short of a miracle. I was able to sleep through the night for the first time in 3 weeks. Neurontin is truly a wonder drug for me with no apparent side effects as yet. The 300mg dose 3 times a day is optimal for me. I was truly fortunate to find a fantastic neorologist who diagnosed my condition and prescribed the medication.

Neurontin has helped a great deal with the pain. I do feel however that it has made me scatter brained... and I no longer feel that it is safe for me to drive a vehicle.

I've been on Neurontin for 10 years for FMS and other painful conditions; neuropathic pain. I haven't experienced unpleasant side effects as well. Couldn't live without it.

My mother wanted me to post this. She takes neurontin and is able to walk and open her hands again. To all of you who post "WARNING" or "Call the FDA", just because you had side effects doesn't mean it should be banned.People do that all the time. Soon, a legal and non-addicting drug wil be taken off the market. The company will be sued and people like my mother will, once again, be without relief. I'm sorry it didn't work for you. I'm sorry about the side effects you experienced. But please. You have no right to condemn my mother to a life of pain. Everything on the market has side effects for some people.

I would not be able to move if it wasn't for this drug.

i have used this medication for about 4 years. I have fibromyalgia and it has been quite the life saver. I am able to move around in ways i have never been able to before. It was hard to get used to. I could not stay awake at first and was very very groggy. this passed in about 1 week to 1.5 week. It was well worth the time. I now have such diminished pain that i can exercise and all. i would recommend to all. trust me, i've tried the others. lyrica and relafen blah blah blah. this works for me. i hope you all find the peace i have. blessings.

I have taken Neurontin for years. I take the generic now. It helps with my bipolar illness, sleep, and menopause. It helps with fibromyalgia. It continues to work for me, with no lessening of effectiveness. I have been on it about six years.
