    Was diagnosed with Lupas and Nerve Pain. Was taking Lyrica 75mg, and it did not work as well as the Neurontin. I take 300mg 3 times daily and what I learned is do not skip a dose. It take a few days to get into your system, but if on it correctly it will help relieve the pain with your physicians help.

    Excellent results for neuropathy associated with nerve damage AND no side effects. Realized it MUST be used continually and not stopped when feeling good. Taking gabapentin during the day and ULTRAM ER before bed. Ne4rve damage realized after chemotherapy treatments associated with cancer.
