I've been feeling much better after combining Skelaxin and Neurontin in addition to my epidural injections. However, after I take my doses of Skelaxin and Neurontin I get struck with the most aweful fatigue! It feels like I can just fall asleep no matter where I am or what I am doing. I have been on Skelaxin for almost 3 weeks now and Neurontin for about 2 weeks. I figured the fatigue will let up after my body got used to it. But it doesn't seem to be improving. So I did a little experiment yesterday, I skipped my afternoon dose of Skelaxin (did my morning and evening dose though) and I felt a 80% better. But.......I paid for it with being stiff and a bit in pain so I don't think I can discontinue the Skelaxin. Someone who has done this combo, please tell me that it will get better?! How long will it be before my body gets accustomed to this med???
