Hi I'm trace and new on here but I was taking gabapentin and they didn't work for me either. Now just been put on pregabalin and tramadol early days but let u know if they work.


I was on Gabapentin for a long time and it didn't really do lot for me. I was switched over to Duloxetine and this has really helped a lot!!!!! Much more effective for me. I shouldn't have waited so long before trying something different.


I am so genuinely sorry to read that and I want to sincerely wish you all the best of luck for your doctors appointment. There are plenty of other medications that you could discuss with your GP, and 3 of them have been mentioned in your other replies. There is also Amitriptyline or Nortriptyline for a couple more.

I want to genuinely wish you all the best of luck.

All my hopes and dreams for you
