I just started taking about 300 mgs & I am going to slowly increase like my dr told me to do... I tried other mood stabilizers & broke out in rashes after taking for several months! Lamictal & Tryleptal were the ones that gave me a rash! I hated 2 stop both, cuz they made me feel better! So, even though my dr gave me this Neurontin prescription a few months ago, I just started taking them & I am scared! But I hear that Neurontin has less side effects & I need less side effects & I need to calm down my hot flashes! I am trying soy capsules to tone the hot flashes down & maca! But, hey anyone on Neurontin, please tell me your experiences & how much u guys are taking now & how you feel on this med vs other mood stabilizers! Thanks for any responses!
