Hi, I have just been prescribed gabapentin to help with extreme pain in my shins, I have rheumatoid athritis and already take methotextrate 17.5 a week and Lodine (etodalac) 500mg a day along with tramadol when required. Can anyone tell me what experiences they have had o gabapentin as I am reluctant to take after having a bad reaction to another med I was on for a short time last year and had to be weaned off it (forget the name of it at this precise moment ! ) Help ???
