    Depending on how well you can tolerate it, your dose on Neurontin is quite low if you're using it to treat neuropathic pain. Many people take serveral times that amount. If you have problems tolerating higher doses, or it still isn't effective, then consider switching over to Lyrica.

    jason james, that must be a misprint the secind 1.5 lex?
    i think that neurotin works better than lyrica, it definitely works much differently.
    neurontin i slept easily, lyrica i needed meds to sleep.
    looking back, neurontin had some great anti anxiety side effect.
    i dont see a 24/7 narc pain reliever?
    cauda equina
