I just got a new prescription for gabapentin 300 mg capsules. I need to start taking it 1-2 b4 bedtime then 1 -3 during the daytime since I have a hard time sleeping from burning,shooting,and numbness coming from my neck and radiating all the way down my fingers. This condition doesn't want to go away. I am willing to try this drug even though one of the side effects is weight gain as at my age i can't afford to can anyone relate ?
