What made your doctor think that giving you IVIG would take away all of your nerve pain? Also, why would a doctor be so concerned about weaning one off of a drug as safe as this (for nerve pain, anyways.) Is he thinkig about the class action lawsuit initiated by those who were given neurontin for depression?
Anyways, stay on the gabapentin, you know how much it helps with the nerve pain, & please get him to understand as well. In nearly 5 years, not one doctor has ever questioned my need for this drug, if anything, my main neuro questions why I am taking such a low dose of it, he said I should be on twice what I am currently taking for the amount of nerve damage that I have. I take 1800 mg daily now, used to take 3600 mg before.
