Just been prescribed Gabapentin for trapped nerve pain .I didn't get the chance to really talk to the doc, not her fault,. Now reading the leaflet and all side effects I am very nervous about taking it. The one question I did ask was can you come of it without trouble was told yes but now reading you have to withdraw slowly. Was given 3 months and told to increase dosage weekly .
300mg for 1 week then 600mg the next week and 900mg the week after. So the cause effects wouldn't be as bad. Was managing my pain before with bufren paracetamol and codiene well enough . Of course I then went on Google and scared myself. Now don't know what to do. Has anyone any advice or personal experience with it please.
