... work on the pain only makes me feel bad. However, I get a compound cream which has gabapentin, ketamine and clonidine and surprisingly, it does work short term topically. Enough time for me to get me breakthrough meds working. I want to stop the gabapentin completely, even just the cream gives me dry mouth, dizziness, and vision trouble. Is the such a compound that can substitute gabapentin with something else? and how long should I take to wean myself off of the gabapentin safely? (sorry about the long post, I'm new and happy to have people like me to talk to and learn from) :)
