  • Perceived effectiveness for RLS (Restless Legs Syndrome): Moderate
  • Side Effects: Moderate
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 300 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Need to be careful with spatial judgement. Perhaps it's no real Valium substitute, but I'm much more relaxed generally taking it. Irregular sleep pattern, but have had sleep problem most of my adult life. May be helping with cramp problem in legs and toes. Valium-like properties seem to be wearing off with the side-effects.
Cost: < $25 monthly

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Major
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 900 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I really do enjoy taking this medication for my Fibro because most of my Fibro is located in my legs and back. I also had surgery done on my feet which messed up the nerves in them and the Neurontin has really helped with that. My dosage might be lowered, but it still helped(s) a lot. I really think this is one of the better medication out there for the "middle of the day" treatment for Fibro.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Feb 22, 2012 (Started Jan 01, 2008)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1600 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Neurontin does help with my Fibromyalgia, but it is only very slightly. I take 400 mg 4 times a day and it does help it slightly, but it helps more with the nerve damage I have in my feet and in my legs.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Sep 19, 2011 (Started Jan 01, 2008)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Side Effects: Mild
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1600 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: The only benefit I get is that it works well with my savella.
Cost: < $25 monthly

Jul 24, 2010 (Started Jan 01, 2008)

  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Slight
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Always
  • Burden: Not at all
Dosage: 1600 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Gabapentin only works for minior aches. I have found that when someone like myself has a severe case of Fibro, it doesn't work so well. But it does help to take the mild cases of pain that I have throughout the day between doses of Savella.
Cost: < $25 monthly
