I have spinal pain, not a surgical situation that radiates out to my ips. Has anyone used Neurontin drug for that purpose and did it help.
I have taken Neurontin for several years and first started with the Lyrica when it was fairly new but I thought that I got better relief with the Neurontin and it is cheaper to buy if you are not insured. Either one is great and they are special for nerve pain no matter which you take, I had a 13 inch spina fusion and my dose was 1800 mgs of Neurontin and it seemed to help alot. Best of Luck to ya, hope it works well for ya...
1st a Shoot out to Sub who 1st commented on your question, she is a doll & always so kind to respond to help but on this subject she and I differ. I personally have tried both neurontin & lyrica and have had awlful results. Now this is me... & you may be different ..but she is one of the only people that I have come accross that has really been helped by this med. Pls try 1st later in the evening so u can be aware of side effects (wow drunk feeling) and nightmare like I have never experienced in my life. I would have to say 15-20 % maybe pain reduction but the side effects were not worth it to me. And there are some side effects if you are on this med for extended period of time that was not worth it to me. Had it given me 50--100 % pain control I may have considered but too much bad for the lit'l good. Sooo after all that... b careful ... take late evening at 1st ... ck the support group on this site for lyrica & neurontin & then your body will tell u the rest, I pray u find help, Like you I battle pain everyday..but am choosing to try very lit'l meds, my spine to inoperable, so I pray pray pray, lots of natural stuff and mostly just suffer to be honest so I wish you luck. God bless you & Good Health in your search for relief... DadsWatchin & MommaN sleepinWbad migraine today
