Will gabapentin help spinal stenosis?

I don't know for sure, but I doubt it. It is my experience that doctors give you gabapentin when they don't know what else to give you and don't want DEA scrutiny. Gabapentin is often administered in gradually huger doses and although not technically addictive, can be very, very difficult to stop taking. With something as severe as spinal stenosis I think opioids are indicated, but I am not a doctor.
