Literally hundreds of my patients have had excellent results for pain, nerve pain, sleep and even mood. Gabapentin is an excellent medication with a very low side effect profile and promising results. You can feel confident that it will work for you - there are always an unfortunate (and often exceedingly vocal) group that fails with any medication or has adverse effects. In my experience the rate of treatment failure due to intolerance of the medication or adverse reactions is literally 1 or 2 in a thousand patients that discontinue the medication because of problems. A small portion of people have no side effects and also get no benefit from the medication so they discontinue therapy. It is a safe and overwhelmingly effective medication and it is a staple of most pain management therapy.
