This question is for Laurie if you can see it. Thanks.
Neurontin does not work immediately. It takes a week to several weeks to reach maximum effectiveness which is dose dependent. You may need to have the dose increased over the next few weeks to reach a dose that is effective for you. Your doctor will have to evaluate and prescribe accordingly.
Neurontin has been tested and is effective against shingles type pain. So give it some time to work and keep your appointments with the doctor.
vnellie,nurotin is a drug that has to be taken for a while to get in ur sysytem,usually the doctors will give u a narcotic in the begenning especialy if ur pain level is very high but dont count on gettin the good stuff for long even though the shingles are very painful,as from all the people ive talked to about it they say the 2nd week is when they can tell a big diff??? Hope this helps
