barley - July 11

Hi, have just been prescribed Gabapentin to try and help with pain, am also taking Sodium Valproate which I have been taking for years and doctor doen't want me to stop taking it. Has anybody else out there been prescribed both to take together?

It is my understanding that people are taking that instead if Lyrica because Lyrica makes you gain weight. Let me know if it helps. The doctor is thinking of putting me on it as well.

Hi Ladybug

I have now been on Gabapentin for 3 weeks, it doesn't get rid of all my pains and I still suffer substantially, but for the first time in years I managed to do some ironing standing up. I usually have to sit down to do the small amount I do, usually my hubby does it, but it felt good to do something towards the housework, without my excrutiating low back pain. I think it is definitely worth you giving it a tr.
