I would like everyone here to read this, however I can not make sure that happens.
In 2008 I tried Neurontine went up to 1250. That doc, used not combo, just this med. It did nothing for my pain.
Four weeks ago, the Doc at Jefferson Univers in Phila, PA added Neurontine to my combo starting at 600mg, I noticed on my pain calender and myself that the pain was going from 6-8 and 10's down to 5-7's. So last week it as increased to 700mg. Now most of the day I have levels of 3-5 and have had NO 10,s since.
The POINT here is, if your current doctor wants to try a med that you have used before, that did not work. Stay positive and allow the doc to do their job. They are not just guessing. They know different combos of meds do different things. Have faith in the good Neuros!
I hope this has helped as least one person, if it has, please pay it forward.
