  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 2400 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Take with food or milk. It can upset your stomach. When I first started taking gabapentin it actually stopped all of the `phantom' pain in my arms and legs. Could hardly believe it! For the longest time I is on 1600 mg a day and now up to 2400 mg a day since they are taking me off the morphine.

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Never
  • Burden: Very
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: The doctor wanted me to take 1 nightly for a week, then increase to 2 and so on until at a high dose. Side effects can be weight gain but for me, at this low dose, I found I would have some dizziness the next morning and blurry vision so no desire to increase. It does help some to ward off pain so I take it when my muscles are making noise like the next day will be a bad fibro day. Sometimes it prevents a bad day, sometimes it doesn't but I am not taking it as prescribed.
