Comment:
Insurance forced me to try this drug for fibromyalgia. On Lyrica for 2 years which helped immensely. Gabapentin has to be the WORST drug i have ever been on. Within 36 hours I was so sick I planned to enter hospital. I had everyone of the major side affects of this drug. Back on Lyrica and within 36 hours all side affects had vanished. BAD BAD DRUG!

I only take this med at bedtime for diabetic neuropathy. It only diminishes the symptons for a short while. Can anyone who uses it for this purpose found anything that works well?
