My Doctor prescribed me gabapentin 2 days ago, I started takin them right away, when I take them about 40 mins later I get a terrible migraine (I've never suffered with migraines before) and I feel shakey, weak and feel a bit sick.
It lasts for about 30 mins, I know this is just my body getting used to them and after the shaking and migraine has gone I feel like a new person, at 1st I thought it was a bit too soon for them to work and I was just having a good day so I researched them online and they can work straight away for some people.
I'm on quite a low dose of 300mg per day, I slept properly for the first time in years last night and wasn't woken by any shooting pains in my arms, legs or neck, I took them with 2 x 30mg Dihydrocodeine and 2 x 25mg Amitriptyline.
Today I have very little pain but the fatigue is still there, do they make anyone else feel shakey or sick?
I'm hoping I get used to them and the side effects go away but even if they dont its worth feeling sick and shakey for 30 mins to have less pain, I just hope they continue to keep the shooting pains at bay
