I have been taking gabapentin for 5 years for post hepatic pain due to multiple outbreaks of shingles I am 63 years old I have gone from 900 mg a day to 2200 I also take amitriptyline it works well but I have breakthrough pain which seems to take a long time to get it under control I just wonder how long is it safe to take this
There is no set time limit. The dr has to monitor you just like he would for any other med. I've been on it for at least 8 yrs now.
