I've been prescribed Gabapentin for my broken jaw and fractured vertebrae, when can I expect relief?
Frankly, I'd say never. Gabapentin helps nerve pain. A fracture is not nerve pain.
I take it and it helps me, but I have nerve pain. The docs don't want to prescribe a narcotic ever and the DEA doesn't care if you have something for a fracture, its just long term use they care about.
