Gene – 3200mg of neurontin did not help. Most of my body is very stiff/tight from my neck down with burning tingling in my hands and a numbing tingling in my feet. The pain level in my arms, back, hips, knees and legs is between 3 – 5 unless I do some sort of activity, then it shoots up.
Tim – I understand that they would gradually increase the lyrica, my doc said 600mg would be max. It’s the same with neurontin, I started at 300mg in August 2004. I just thought that they would start to decrease the neurontin when they started the lyrica.
Pam – I think you are asking me what I asked you. I asked my doc if he wanted me to start decreasing the amount of neurontin when he started me on lyrica, and he said no. Yes I do feel more tired I fell asleep watching American Idol tonight and missed Melinda Doolittle’s song – ticked me off.
He wants me to get back with him the first week in April to see how I am doing with the new dose of lyrica.
