I was on 2700 mg of neurontin; nine 300 mg per day. The burning/tingling feeling that I experience on the top of head returned in early June. I did not want to increase the dose once again as it has contributed to other problems I am experiencing -- weight gain and loss of bone density. So my neuro had me taper down my dosage starting about 3 1/2 weeks ago. I cut the neurontin by 900 mg the first five days and another 900 the next five days. I have not taken any for 13 days.
On the plus side I have lost 12 pounds. On the negative side, I have experienced constant nausea, stomach pains, hot flashes, and dizziness. The burning has not gotten worse. My neuro had me try evalil (spelling), but I quit taking it after five days as I felt worse.
My advice to all of you: neurontin is a very addictive drug. I am pretty sure my neuro had me taper off if it too quickly.
