Has any one heard of new research that Neurontin actually damages brain cells?
I haven't seen the research on Neurontin but I can tell you it worked great for my pain. Now for my brain that was another story, I couldn't remember a conversation or what I had done 5 minutes before I was very lethargic and was nothing but a breathing numb lifeless being. My husband Praise the Lord made me get off of it after I freaked out on him, he came home we had a conversation he went to the bedroom to get something and I had forgotten in that short of time that he had came home and when I heard someone in the house I started freaking out. I thought someone had broke into our house and I was in a panic, when I found out it was my husband I started yelling at him for scaring me and why didn't he tell me that he came home. Needless to say I can't take it, nor can I take Lyrica even though they want to try to with a lesser dose now and try to work me up to a higher one. With Lyrica I am a falling down silly drunk person well at least I knew who everyone was and I was happy but I don't think I can go through life like that either I don't want anyone to say well Pastor Chandra is hitting the bottle again, LOL. Praying for answers and a better way to combat this naturally.
Yes, you need to weigh benefits and cons. For me I chose to have quality of life over quantity. My pain was unbareable and I needed Nuerontin to stop taking daily pain killers. Do what is right for you.
It has to, because I now have a twitch in my hands. Not a tremor, or shakiness, it's a twitch. It's very annoying. And when I ask anyone, like a pharmacist or a DR they say um yea and walk away... non committing to yes or no.
I totally agree with you. Wishing you better days
