Keep trying neurotin

I’m new to the GBS family (Jan 07) and the neurontin does take some getting used to. I’ve had 5 IGIV’s in the hospital and 2 cince I’ve been home but the neurontin is the only thing that’s been good for the pain. I started with 300mgs 3 times a day that 400 than they upped it to 800mgs 3 times a day and it knocked me on my butt. They reduced it down to 600 and things are looking better. The body needs time to adjust to it and you have to take it slow. It’s a slow road and things do get better, just not fast enough.
