The pain only occurs when sitting. Does anyone have experience taking this drug for sciatica pain?
I tried this drug (and some other similar ones) for sciatica in my left leg, none helped at all. Eventually, I had lumbar fusion surgery (2 surgeries over 3 days). Now, I'm going to have stem cell therapy.
Gabapentin can help with nerve pain. Sciatica is not a problem with the nerve. It is an irritation to the nerve.
To be honest with you the pain will never go away but the gabapentin does eliminate some of the pain making more manageable trust me I take 900mg 3time a day one u start it and ever run out or choose not to take because of the side effects u will see the difference trust me
