I am in a lot of pain somedays and dont like taking all of these big bad painkillers they throw at us like candies i was just wondering mail or female, if you use this Gabapentin to help your Fibromyalgia
I am a male & take Gabapentin for nerve skeletal pain due to two broken vertabrae C-1 C-2 that took 2 operations to fix & I also take 8 8mg Dilaudid but I defininatly think the Gabapentin works very well,I don't know what type of pain your illness causes but I don't get any side effects except for maybe a little sedation. I can't see any harm in it. Good luck.
I have tried gabepentin with not very good results. I do however take Lyrica & it is wonderful for the fibromyalgia & arthritis I have. I had to stop for three months due to an insurance do hickey, but am back on just 1 pill last night & sleep like alog & no pain in hands today!. I will increase my 75mg each week until I can reach a total of 225 mg a day. Hope this helps too. Some people complain about side effects of weight gain or ankle swelling, but I'd much rather have 5 extra pounds than all the pain. Just my thoughts...
