  • Perceived effectiveness for Aching burning throbbing body pain: Major
  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Gabapentin helped my pain A LOT. With improvements in diet and lifestyle and lowering my stress level I've been able to gradually decrease my dose from 1200 mg a day to 300-600 mg a day. I experienced minimal side effects from this drug. My mother also has fibromyalgia (she has peripheral neuropathy as well) and has had a very good response to it also.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Stiffness/Spasticity: Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 200 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: This is the only medication I take that isn't causing me any problems. I have been taking this since 1996, when first diagnosied with MS. One benefit I noticed, is a good night sleep since this dose increase, before I was waking up in the middle of the night with pain and spasms.
Cost: < $25 monthly
