... about the side effects of this drug does anyone have any answers for me?
Hi barron. I did some research regarding Gabapentin (Neurontin) Overall, it got a pretty good review for helping with this type of pain. I'm sorry the Savella didn't work for you and you had bad reactions. This painful condition can be difficult to treat. It may take a few different medications before finding the one that helps you the most. From what I understand, this medication may take several weeks to build up in your system before the best results are seen. As with any medication, the side effects may or may not be bad. Or you may not have any reactions at all. There's really no telling until you try it. This medication was prescribed to a good friend of mine and she was very surprised that it worked so well. Others have had negative effects and stopped taking it. If you go to "Drugs A to Z" on the top of this page and click on Gabapentin, then scroll to the bottom of the page, there are reviews from people prescribed it. Remember, it may take some time before you feel the results. Be sure to call your doctor if you have any bad reactions to it. I hope it works well for you. I know how painful your condition is. Nerve pain is awful! Thanks for adding me as a friend. You should also add sacosam, beanmarie, Maso, and fall queen. They are much more familiar with this condition. Good luck to you and hope you find relief soon.
