I just started it. It is supposed to work in 1 week, 2 caps per day. I don't know what it is supposed to do exactly. I read that it is a spin-off of Neurontin with less side effects. I have been feeling horrible this past summer and now into fall. I just cannot get out of this rut. All of you understand. Not only do i have to deal with the pain and fatigue, but when i do have energy to do something, it either costs money or i know it will zap my energy. So what do you do when you live alone in a little apartment? Real limited income but i was lucky i got approved for SSDI and the long-term disability plan from work. How do you get your life back?
