I used this drug to relieve exteme tingling and electric shocks from my stomach down my legs to my feet and toes due to type II diabetes. I also was unable to sleep more than 1 or 2 hours a night.

Eventually my nerve pain went away ... Show Full Comment

Loved the med. Stopped my feet pain almost completely. But I gained 20 pounds in 2 months and then went off immediately. Then continued to gain another 10 pounds. Lost that last 10 but the other 20 has never came back off. Ugh! Doctor says this is common. Wish I hadnt tried it though.

This works nearly as well as Lyrica but because I don't live close to my pharmacy, I've let myself run out of it twice for two days. The uncontrollable ITCHING is horrible! I've vowed to not let this happen again.
