Advice & Tips: Be prepared for potential for hallucinations in your dreams, a sense of unreality mixing with reality in the first week or two... then it quits. I had this happen twice as the first time I quit it immediately scared out of my wits, but then once realizing what's going on, bore thru it, but it's an emotional roller coaster. Then I conducted my own experiment and quit it thinking it wasn't doing its job and my pain level jumped from about a 2 to a 12 til I got back on it again... silly me. It works. Stops the repetitive spasms and reduces the pain to a tolerable level.

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.
