Hi Kayvan61014. I've taken 1200mg nightly of gabapentin for years, but recently tried Lyrica for a second time because insurance stopped covering my Nucynta, my primary pain med. One very important point is you can't be on Lyrica and gabapentin simultaneously because they are in the same family of medication.
Now that I have Nucynta approved, I've stopped the Lyrica for pain. Over the years I developed a tolerance to gabapentin so if I take it more than 3 or 4 nights per week it doesn't work well for sleep or pain.
One problem that gabapentin can contribute to is memory loss while taking it, but I stopped it a few years ago and my memory didn't improve. Obviously the benefits of taking gabapentin far outweigh any side effects or I wouldn't still be taking it. I hope that it works well for you. Love, Butterflake
