    Not at all hard to take
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.
