Hi, I have taken Neurontin(gabapentin) Off and on for years. I took it about
ten years ago for muscle spasms in my back and left hip. i was a wonder drug. I now take Lyrica for the fibro, I think it has help me with the nausea and some pain although not alot. I too will be seeing the rheumy in about
4 wks. She then said she wanted to put me back on the neurontin and then up the dose later. I was briefly on it before the Lyrica and I tell you, I didn't realize the difference on it, until i was off of it. Then the pain was unbelievable.
So if i had to say, I like the neurontin, and the Lyrica does help a bit with the muscle pain.
I hope I helped a bit. good luck. Laura
