Re: [IP] Gabapentin/Neurontin



Betsy,

 If you don't mind me asking, when does your foot/ leg fall asleep? Do you get
pins and needles when they wake up? One of my docs is telling me I have carpal
tunnel in my hands because they started falling asleep while I was sleeping. I
don't have the true symptoms of carpal and I am wondering if I should get them
to test me neurologically to be sure. The doc doesn't seem to think it is
serious but if it is the beginnings of neuropathy, I want to know.

Thanks,

Suzanne

Sam, I'm only taking 300 mg once a day (bed time).  I've had no side
effects.  I started taking a few weeks ago it because one foot and leg were
'falling asleep'.

Mr Dr. has prescribed this medication for what he believes is neuropathy in
my back.  Anyone have any testimony about this drug?  I made the mistake of
looking on line at side-effects and of course it is making me second guess
taking it!  The pain is bothersome but not such that it is disabling. 
Thanks, Sam.
