Hi, Larry,

It is used off label for pain more especially peripheral neuropathic pain. It is not a narcotic and usually prescribed before Vicodin is prescribed for long term pain.

Doctors ALWAYS take the most conservative approach FIRST, see how that works or not, then move UP A STEP.

It is all pretty much trial and error. Unfortunately for me, Neurontin didn't control my nerve pain, but Elavil a tricyclic antidepressant and Trazodone did.

Good Luck!
All the best,
Tony
