As long as you're doing it within prescribed guidelines. SInce you said you felt 80% better when you didn't taken your afternoon dose of the muscle relax., that probably says it's the combination of them that's too much. I don't know anything about Skelaxin, but your neurontin dose is on the lower side (although I've found I was very sensitive to neurontin and had to move up very slowly - I used 100mg tablets for awhile until I got up to my 400mg 4X/day dose). As I'm thinking about it your body may get used to the neurontin some - although I think you can't negative its CNS depressant effects, especially when you're going to combine them.
I know how complicated this is! I think I counted and I'm around 15 or so pills a day and I hate it! I have to write them down to remember because they don't all fit in those organizers. I keep thinking I'd be much worse off without them....but there is no perfect solution for us, I fear, except leaning on eachother!
