    Hi everyone
    I am just curious if anyone has experienced Dry mouth and slight hoarsness in their throat from taking Neurontin/Gabapentin. I am now up to 6oomg per day. 300 mg am and 300 at night?? I have a doctor's appt on Friday to discuss this but thought you all may be able to help somewhat before I go. I really don't want to have to quit taking it as I think it is helping but I want to increase it too.
    Thanks a bunch

    I am on 1800 mg a day 600mg morning noon a night .

    I also get dry mouth but I have been on it for 1 yr now.

    I would never get off it cause that with the cymbalta has made a change for me.

    I was bed ridden befor I started taking the two.It took about 3 weeks to kick in but when it did I was able to be out of bed.

    I still have pain 24/7 some times I go into an awfull flair .But for the most part it has helped me . I am used to the dry mouth and hoarsness.

    Hope this helps.
