... bottle sit until it expired. Would it help him if he got another perscription. I know it is not a pain medicine but does it help? I am not knowledgeable about diabetes and he is kind of a martyr when it come to this.
Yes it is a pain medicine. Per my Dr.
take about a week to work. I have been taking it for years and I have no no pain in shins or hot feet. It does work, but takes about week for it to start working. It made a BIG difference in my life.
Neurontin is an anti-epileptic medication, also called an anticonvulsant. It affects chemicals and nerves in the body that are involved in the cause of seizures and some types of pain. Neurontin is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat seizures caused by epilepsy in adults...
Yes. My Mother has diabetes also and is insulin dependent. Her Dr. prescribed 100mg for her to take 2 times a day, and all the burning and nerve pain has greatly diminished. She has been taking it for a month now.
If your husband gave this medication a chance, it does work. I also take 400mg 3 times a day, for spinal stenosis. I have had 3 back surgeries and have some nerve damage in the legs. It works great for this condition as well.
Neurontin will help if you take it everday and a few times a day. What is better is Neurontin in combination with a tri-cyclic antidepressant such as Amitryptaline (spelling). And then maybe a low dose muscle relaxer. I have Type II diabetes and diabetic neuropathy and with these drugs in combo he will get relief, but he has to take them as prescribed. Make a new doctor appointment and discuss those medications all working together :)
I took it for nerve pain which I had for over ten years if that doen't help there is lyrica or a vitamin which is alpha lipoic acid 200 mg, tis was also helpful, especially many people cant take those other meds because of side effects, this ala has none and it helped get rid of the pain it takes a few days to work. good luck
