I have peripheral neuropathy as a result of chemo therapy for colon cancer. I was prescribed Neurontin (300mg X 3) by my oncologist. I cut back to 2 before bed, helped me sleep and feet felt good in the morning. Took one during day to reduce pain. My GP wanted me on Cymbalta to 'work from the head' to deal with the pain and my mild depression. I like the neurontin results for the foot pain, but the Cymbalta makes my day good. Can I take my 600mg Neurontin at bedtime and still take the 60mg Cymbalta mid-morning?
Yes you can was researching this myself wondering why my oncologist had not thought of this or 2 other primary dr since I continued to complain about this chronic pain from breast cancer.
These drugs as I am learning compliment each other while at the same time attack the pain in different ways. Warning: take these at night.
One of my 4-legged family member,maggie is on gabapentin, due to hip dysplasia and not ONE, but TWO bad knee sockets. Thank goodness for our vet Dr. Nathan Orr at least somebody is looking out for our family. I have told him over the years which he could be a duo, or clone him so he could help the 2 legged family members, my husband and myself.
He is the BEST!!!
SO, IF THAT WAS WAAAYY TO MUCH INFO THE BOTTOM LINE... YES,YES,YES!
CHEERS, Here is to less pain and more restful nights.
