My doctor prescribed gabapentin for sore feet and muscle pain in my legs and I am on 300 mgs. I am new to this drug ,and my feet feel better, and I feel like I am less anxious. Is it my imagination?
I am suffering from cervical disk disease and have a bulging disk in my neck that is causing nerve damage in my left arm and hand making it weak and also numb. I was on a narcotic called Lortab or (Norco) for so long that my body got used to having it and if I didn't have it, I would go through withdraws and severe anxiety. Now that my Neuro doc prescribed me gabapentin (Neurontin) 300 mgs 3 times a day, I feel less anxious and it also helps with pain. Not as good as a Narcotic but it is non habit forming and helps so much. Always felt scared to take any anxiety or depression med but this miracle pill has helped with all my needs, thus far, I've only been on it for 2 weeks.
