Hi there Cindy,
I had a real bad reaction to the Neurontin. I was having real good success with it too when i started to get real itchy and then noticed that i had red welts all over. My Neuro took me off immediately. He then suggested to try Lyrica, however warned me that the same would most likely happen b/c the 2 have almost the same chemical makeup (something like that, lol). So i decided to try it and sure enough, just as he said, same thing happened. I was using it for nerve pain, so he then gave me cymbalta, which i love. It eally works for me for the nerve pain, but also is an anti depressant, so it really works for me well.
Hope you feel better soon. Nerve pain stinks............
