I have been taking 1200mg a day of Gabapentin for pain. It is relatively effective most of the time but I believe it has affected my memory, ability to concentrate, and alertness. It makes me groggy and foggy. Someone told me its also used as a mood stablizer. I was wondering if anyone has had experience with changing from Gabapentin to Lyrica, which is supposed to be the newer version and supposedly requires a lower dose for greater pain relief.
I'd really like to hear about people's experiences with one vs the other. Thanks! Together we really are better
