Hi all, Im up to 1800mgs a day, wow what a difference in my leg, and hand. Its 90% better, and so I am thrilled. It does make me very dizzy, tired though. Anyway Ill take the side effects anyday as opposed to the electric bolt of pain as I like to call it. Cant wait to get the epidural, I hear they are helpful as well. I am currently on a waiting list (missed the last due to having the flu). Does anyone have the symptom of infections with these meds? Im on percocet and neurontin (now I have a bladder infection I think). Thanks for all the responses, I have learned so much from this web site. (Dont have to bug the Dr. with 18 million questions).View Thread
Yes, it is 300mg x 3 a day now. I am glad to hear that over the years it does not lose it effectiveness. Seems to me thats what the pain pills do. Anyway, I know now I wont have to increase the pain pills dosage with this new drug, and Im just happy about that. I see some light in this back pain dark world I have been in lately.View Thread
