    Hello Rick. It was great to see this video today because my husband was put on gabapentin by his doctor yesterday, after the Lamictal was making him very cruel to my daughter and me. GP was prescribed for his knee pain and also bipolar/ptsd. I pray this helps because the man needs relief. He has no cartilage in his left knee and a bunch of other health issues! Also, thanks for a video without foul language in it! I appreciate you and would like to hear how your other procedures go for you.

    I have been on 1200 mg. For 3 years and I am fixing to get off of it. I have gained 50 pounds, I am too fatigued to do anything and I can’t work due to memory problems. It is a great drug at first, however it is hell to come off of.

    Gabapentins great, I have trigeminal neuralgia and after having side effects from carbamazepine I was given several other drugs which either didn’t work or had bad side effects give gabapentin a go. It helps me sleep and makes me more outgoing
