When I first started taking this, I did not see that big an improvemtn. I had to stop taking it for a while, an thats when I found that it had indeed been helping more than I had given it credit for. Now I take 300 MG X 3 a day, and I know how well it actuallt works.

Comment:
unbeleivably this med was given to me to treat peripheral neuropathy. It increased all the symtoms of my condition and until i read the side effects at webmd i was unaware it was happening, and just thought my condition was worsening. AS I WAS WEANING OFF MY SYMTOMS STARTED TO LESSEN. Be careful of this med in general but especially over time.

I have been on this drug for a year, 300 mg at night. I have extreem pain if I don't take it! But, I am also very off balance, and have a difficult time thinking until it wears off in the afternoon. I can sleep on the drug but can barely function.
