Hi, I've been prescribed many different pain medications over the years and have little to no relief from them. I suffer from degenerative disc disease and sciatica. Yesterday my doctor switched me to gabapentin and I still feel no relief. I do not want to combine my other medications with it for fear of bad interactions. However, I am in severe agonizing pain.
I've heard gabapentin can take a while to build up in the system. But I am unable to function. Can't walk, sleep, go to the bathroom without pain. I've missed work for a week now and can't loose anymore days. But if nothing works I am housebound.
Please help, what can I do?
