    Hi folks

    I've been on Neurontiin for about 2 months, but during that time I've had some side effects that are affecting my relationship in a big way.

    My doctor has advised I reduce, and maybe even come off it. I'm happy to try, but I'm worrried about the migraine and facial pain increasing to unbearable intensity again.

    Does anyone have any drugs they have tried that help for this type of neuraligic pain - migraines, burning, numbess, intense facial ache, sore teeth etc...

    Thanks, and take care
    Michelle

    Thanks Rhonda

    No, I havent tried that. I hear its the "new improved" version of Neurontin.

    Have you had any side effects? Sorry, to ask, but has it affected your libido in any way? I hope that doesnt offend.

    Take care
    Michelle
