This is something of a continuation from my gross post, but much easier for us all if i just start a new thread since i'm only posting on part of that thread.
My pcp prescribed Neurontin to me for my leg pain. The situation is that i use Requip and it helps at times and at other times it just doesn't. The pain can become instense and at those times is when i see no effect from the Requip. Well in my appt a few days ago i misunderstood the docs direction for use of Neurontin. I understood he wanted me to discontinue the Requip and start the Neurontin. That was wrong. He was telling me to use it in conjunction with the Requip. However, i decided not to fill that prescription because i was basically afraid of such a strong med and my feeling i didn't really need it. Thanks to Uppity's good advice i called to let him know i didn't intend to use the Neurontin. Well again, this is why he has the medical degree and i don't...i was wrong. He explained to me what he intended and i got the med yesterday. I'm supposed to take one 100mg tablet at night for a week and then two 100mg tablets at night after that. I used it last night and OHMYGOSH!!! It helped sooooo much!!!! I will continue to take it as he's prescribed and see if the effects continue to be so great. If so i will put it in a gold laden case alongside my Maxalt and pay hommage to it each time i use it. ;)
