“Over the Hill”

You know, you take twice as much Gabapentin as I do, pluss the other stuff and it still isn’t enough. Poor you, this is really bad. If I didn’t have my painkillers, I guess I’d go jump off a cliff, or something! Well, I don’t know about that for sure, but I know how bad it can become if I only forget to take my medication onece during the day. I too take my dose (600mg) of Neurontin 4 times a day, but I also take 25 mg of Amitriptyline retard – which means it stays in the system over a period of time and doesn’t release everything at once, mornings and evenings. This drug makes you relax and many here on the forun use it against pain, obviously including me. Paracetamol is also known to help, and I take 500mg of that combined with 30mg Codeine in one pill. Paracetamol and Gabapentin taken together enhances the effect of both. So at lunch and dinner time I take that.

I hope this could give you some help.
