Reviews for Neurontin to treat Postherpetic Neuralgia
Review by Fifi London (taken for 2 to 5 years):
I have taken Neuorontin for over five years. I have Multiple Sclerosis and lots of nerve pain. This medicine works...But it will change your personality. BEWARE.. can make you violent. However for nerve pain best medicine out there.

I am on Gabapentin for nerve damage due to chemotherapy. I am now up to 600mg 3 times a day. I am not having a lot of relief and have a lot of dizziness, joint pain headaches, and unsteadiness.

I was first given Neurontin for the shingles, for a few days nothing helped the pain of the shingles, most painful thing I have ever had. After about a week I started feeling better, was sleeping all night and now I have no pain. Even though I still have the shingles best medicine for pain I have ever taken.

Review by Jamie_LA (taken for 1 to 2 years):
I'm on 300mg 3x a day. It's my lifesaver for neuropathy and restless legs. It allows me to sleep at night. I find the only side effect is increased appetite.

Review by 24th ID:
My doctor started me on this after I had crazy nerve pain due to shingles. It works amazing for me! When I don't take it or it's time for my dose it feels like I've been shot in the area where my shingles were worst. So I have nothing but great things to say about this medicine for me.

Review by 64ncounting:
It relaxes me so that I no longer hold my upper body rigid and the pain is lessened. I am able to get much needed REM sleep.

I had pain in my head with shingles. After taking one pill the pain went away, the next day I went to work for a few hours.
