    Hello everyone..

    I'm new here, so have spent the last hour or so reading
    the available posts. What a wealth of information!

    Although this may have been discussed at an earlier date,
    I see no mention of Neurontin and I'm wondering if anyone
    else (other than me) has tried it for FM relief?

    I found that, for the first few weeks, it really helped,
    but by the time I'd worked up to 4500mg/day, it was no
    longer as effective, so began reducing it and now I'm not taking it at all.

    I have 3 forms of arthritis and osteo, so sometimes, it's
    difficult to determine the source of the pain, but for the
    time that it worked, Neurontin definitely addressed the
    FM.

    It may well be that others would find it more useful over
    a longer stretch than I did, so thought I'd toss it in
    the ring along with all the other meds already mentioned.

    I'm glad I found this Message Board - you've already given me an armful of ideas to lug to my next Drs appointment..:)

    Thanks,

    Kathy

    I'm relatively new here myself, so I don't have any information for you. I know how valuable this board has been for me.

    Stay with us.
