How is this medication given for pain when its a drug for fits? I have femoral nerve palsy in my left leg and bad pain in both my arms,and my lower back, i am undergoing tests but no results yet. I am on 1800mgs per day of Gabapentin and 30mg of Amitriptyline (which is a drug for depression) i am very confused and still in alot of pain, in fact these pills arnt making any difference, should i stop taking them?

As I've said, for me it does not work on pain. So many doctors will say it works on pain but I disagree . As far as the other med, I hate to be harsh, but they're just blowing smoke up your b***. I know a lot of people who have taking that medication, and it does not work for them either. The most it will do for you is make you gain weight. As we all know kama I am NOT a doctor. However, I am speaking. From experience . Talk to your doctor, put it straight tell him its not working for you. It is your experience and do you need to advocate for your self. I am so sorry that you're in so much pain, I totaly understand what you're going through. I hope this helps you some how and God bless!
