Reply To: Switching From Gabapentin

Hi Hedley, I did not switch, but just got off Lyrica because it felt like it was doing more damage than the residuals.
Took Nerontin first, but the huge doses needed were scary. Lyrica was new then and I got on that for 3 years I think till like I said-felt like I was poisoning my body. It was and is not easy to deal with the pain, but feels more healthy.
I did get an RX for Vicodin that i take now and then when the foot pain gets too bad or i can’t sleep.
I also live in Oregon–so am trying some other meds that seem to do the same thing for me but tend to give me the munchies.
Good luck.
