    The healing benefits of Neurotin were apparent from the first day of taking the medication. The numbness and pain in my hands and forearms disappeared first and my toes followed. The severe hyper sensitivity of my legs took just a few days to calm down. It was nothing short of a miracle. I was able to sleep through the night for the first time in 3 weeks. Neurontin is truly a wonder drug for me wi ... Show Full Comment

    I've had MS for 4 years. My biggest problem was bouts of severe pain in my lower legs. My neurologist ran an EMG and nerve study and all went well.

    I have taken this for neuropathic pain after cervical fusion and for fibromyalgya. I never got any of the good effects of some of the other people, but none of the bad ones. Maybe i need a larger dosage than 6oox3. Something to think about.

    Comment:
    Im very torn when it comes to this drug. I have been taking 900mg 3x a day for intense nerve pain in my legs and feet. The nerve damage is from a combination of the chemotherapeutic drug vincristine, which I had taken for almost two years in my chemo regimen as a child with Ewings sarcoma, my lupus (which I developed in my early 30's) and diabetes. I must say the pain has totally disappeared, ... Show Full Comment
