I’m on 3600mg of Gabapentin every day. I takes about 20 to 30% of my foot pain away. I know it when I skip a day. Gabapentin is dirt cheap and seems to have no side effects, at least with me.

Another option is Lyrica, as suggested by my Doctor if the Gabapentin isn’t doing enough for me.

One I tried is Cymbalta. It did take, say 50% of my foot pain away, but man alive, it sent me into Lala land. One pill would have me feeling doped up for several days. So I quit taking it. I simply could not function taking these pills. Other people though, tolerate it just fine.
