I am waiting for a compartment pressure test. I have been given neurontin to try to alleviate the pain to enable me to walk further.
Neurontin, or gabapentin (generic name) is used for many completely different problems.
One of them is nerve pain. I take it for knee pain, because no other Pain meds work on it. I get moderate relief.
I have to assume that your doctor is prescribing it for your muscle pain.
The next time you see him/her ask your doctor why they are prescribing it. make sure that you get a clear answer.
Then get back to me with your doctor's answer.
