  • Perceived effectiveness for Fibromyalgia: Moderate
  • Side Effects: None
  • Adherence: Usually
  • Burden: A little
Dosage: 900 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I have tried Lyrica, Cymbalta and Savella all with horrible side effects. I don't see any side effects from what I can tell with the Neurontin. I am on a patient assistance program and get this medication for $5 a month which as I understand is a processing type fee from where I get it from.
