Anyone had success with neurontin?

My neurologist has prescribed neurontin and I’m getting ready to start the 1st dose tonight. I have tried amitriptyline/nortriptyline with decent success but had to stop because of side effects. I’ve also tried toprol and was starting to see a little bit of success but had to discontinue it because of bad side effects. So I’m getting ready to start neurontin and was just wondering about other people’s success/failure on it. Thanks!


Neurontin was quite successful in reducing my symptoms but unfortunately I had to stop because of an intolerable side effect. I couldn’t get above 900 mg. I think it is well worth a go.


Thanks for your reply. I started it last night but I felt too tired & dizzy this morning to function. I guess I will try cutting my pill in half tonight & see how it goes!
