Has anyone else here tried, or been prescribed Gabapentin? It also goes by the name of NEURONTIN. If you did, or are taking it, I am interested in the effect it had on you. For me, when I stopped taking it after just two small doses, I seemed to have "rebound pains" where several body parts had sharp pains, and then later I got achey all over. This is pretty scary stuff - like what if I cannot stop it because I hurt too much? Isn't that pretty much addiction, with a twist? -------- There have been many BAD BAD reports on this drug, and it was involved in a large lawsuit for being used inappropriately in "off-label uses". It seems doctors are still willing to prescribe it for those same "off-label uses" because I got it for Fibro pains, which it was never approved for. Not that I am taking it willingly... I was actually pressured into taking it... really!! I don't want to get into that here for now [ask me privately if you can find my email].
