I have had recent oral surgery so I am out of tune in responding to some who responded to me a good month ago; I do apologize but I am back on the saddle so to speak! * For the last two weeks I have not taken my neurotin. I have taken in about 3-years and never advanced beyond the started dose of 1200mg. spread however I wanted it or all at once at night. Well, I immediately felt "something" so fprtunately my dear GP who was dealth me continued with the prior rheumu/neuro's plan. Which plan called for graduated increase in the neurotin if "it" worked. After two weeks off neurotin I could not remember five minutes; no exaggeration. For two weeks I know very little of what went on around me. My dear son left yesterday for a Lakehouse visit with his "Hudgins" brothers in Tyler, TX. so by the time he returns I will have my brain back. The effect was truly dramatic. The old grey mare still ain't what she out to be but I'm on my way, atleast cognitively! Love to all whose prayers have sustained me and to hell to the rest (just JOKING!) CactusLil'
