Umm Annoyed wouldn't be the word I would use! I was very angry and I got an explanation letter in the mail today and it stated that Lyrica hasn't been CLINICALLY proven to be safe in neuropathy's. And since it hasn't been studied properly, they won't cover it.
PaLady, yes Skelaxin is a muscle relaxant. I really like Skelaxin, it helps ease my muscle spasms and I was going to try and stick with just that but after my muscles relax I still get the sharp "electrical" type pains up and down my neck. Doctors orders - 300mgs of Neurontin take 1 pill for 5 days, then 2 pills for 5 days and then 3 a day. I just don't want to be a zombie - no I take that back - I CAN'T be a zombie because I am the primary caregiver to my 89 year old grandmother who has Alzheimers. So maybe by starting slow with the Neurontin it won't have that drugged up effect??
