    Never tried it before, but I hear nothing but horrible things about it.

      For me Gabapentin actually works well, I have very little side effects. As the blog details, I have tried Cymbalta and Lyrica without much success, so Gaba it is for now.

    I have never taken this medication, but I have taken others that really have messed me up. Be careful with this.

    I used to take this medication for years, but now I’m on CBD oil and I’m very happy on it. You really should give it a try. It has ND THC, which stands for No Detectable THC, so you shouldn’t pop on any urinalysis tests. It is a blessing from our savior.

      I hear you, but I can’t take that chance.

    I tried this junk a long time ago, I really didn’t like it at all. Is it actually working for you?

    I take 600mg of Gabapentin every day, and I don’t have any side effects at all. I love it.

      I take 1800mg a day and I have very few side-effects, now, but when I started, it was really making me sleepy.

    Be careful with this, as it seems to be the only thing that is working for you.
