My doctor told me to take gabapentin for arthritis in my cervical spine. Is this a recognized use for this medicine?
Kathy yes it has been used for this for many years but they normally start at a low dose and slowly increase it until you get some relief. I hope that is soon for you. If you have been on it a while and have not noticed anything give your doctor a call it could be you need a dose adjustment. good luck
