I tried to wean from Neurontin to Lyrica for small fiber neuropathy of the feet and legs. Lyrica did not control my pain very well [for example, one night I had the urge to get a saw and remove the offending pain parts] and I had HUGE lethargy and sleepiness issues while on it. I finally gave up trying to switch over after 3 weeks.
I agree with Straydog that you just have to see how you do with it. Many people cannot tolerate Neurontin and it works well for me. We are all so different in how we react to meds, that one just really has to give it a go and see what happens.
