Amazing so far

Been taking gabapentin for just 2 days, I have had awful pain in my spine and have been unable to stand up straight or bend or anything, but taking these tabs already have helped a lot, I took one tablet yesterday and 2 today then from then on 3 a day.

Has anyone else tried them?

I would also like to know if you can drink alcohol while taking them?

  • So pleased you have some relief, not sure about alcohol, usually not advised with meds. xx

  • I found I was really ditzy when on Gaberpentin, I then changed to pregablin, wonderful, practically instantly better.

    Glad you found something working for you.seems to be working

  • Hi littlejan

    I genuinely hope that your Gabapentin works really well for you. I have never tried them myself but I recently started on a similar drug called Pregabalin.

    Take care

  • Hi,

    I've been on gabapentin for 6 months now. I found, like you, that I had almost instant relief taking them. Going by the nhs website there is no interaction between alcohol and gabapentin.

    I'm so glad that you are feeling better. Long may it continue.

    Merry christmas and happy new year

  • I did at first but after taking them for a couple of weeks I was sleeping better.
