Comment:
I was percribed this for migraine treatment and have only been on it for a week. I don't like this medication at all. I'm supposed to up the dosage by 10mg every 3 days until I reach 50mg and take it at bed time. I'm currently at 30mg and can't sleep at night. I have insomnia and this is making it worse.

I went up to 40 mg and recently have been brought down to 30 mg and then 20 mg. Since I dropped to 20, I wake up with stiff muscles, and moderate to severe joint pain in hands, arms, legs and feet. (not sure if related).

Comment:
I was diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy almost 31/2 yrs. ago. I started with Neurontin, Lyrica, and Cymbalta. None of them helped the pain.
