I have taken this medication for about 13 months. I have Spinal Cord damage from a back injury. It has allowed me to continue a semi normal life.

It makes me feel high and sleepy all the time even after decreasing the dosage. It helps with the pain but does not eliminate the pain. I feel hungover sometimes with a headache and sleepiness. It is a hard medication to get adjusted to.
