I have been prescribed Gabapentin but capsules say Neurontin 100mg 1 x 3 times a day. I have already been on Tramadol 200mg 1 x twice a day. I have found that the Gabapentin work pretty well. It is always much worse at night and sometimes have to get up in early hours and wait till it settles down or take another tablet depending how long ago I took the earlier one. But I do agree it is one hell of a pain!!!!!
