I take this for arm pain.  Just at night though because it makes me drowsy.  As long as I am consistent with it, it seems to help.

Thanks for the response. I am suppose to work up to 2700 mg per day if needed. Hope I don't require that much.... I am also on Clonazapam only at night though.

I've been on gabapentin for a few years and it was originally prescribed for jaw pain.
Trigeminal Neurolgia which is caused by an MS plaque on the trigelminal nerve (one of the most painful symptoms known to mankind) Gabapentin will not control this pain when full blown.
Presently taking 1500mg/day for minor aches.
Leg cramps hve now become a problem and doctor prescibes Bacoflen.
