    I am taking Neurontin and 3,500 mg a day, sometimes more. I had the pain only in my right foot for a year and now it's gradually moving to underneath my thighs.

    Spider. As for 3.500 mg/day, how will that fit unless you’re taking 35 100 mg tablets/capsules a day?

    My tablets are 600mg. 600mg is ONE tablet. I take about 5 to 6 tablets a day.

    My bottle says take 1 tablet 4x daily. I have been taking more.

    Nevertheless, this S**! doesn't work one ioda.

    Same here, 600 mg, eat in total 1800mg/day, helps a great deal for me, has done so since 2000 with same mg. Have tried to quit from time to time but then pain comes and are more present after a while. Don’t know if I read it, but have you tried Lyrica if Neurontin does not help too much, those two meds are based upon different technology and can work different person to person. I have not tried, cause Gabapentin works for me. Hope you find a solution if you are in too much pain.

    I'm gonna chime in here ....

    Summary...lower dosages dont do much for me either, sent a feeler out to see if there were some pharmacist types around here.
