I have been prescribed 2700 mg of Neurontin daily (900mg 3 times daily) by my new Neurologist. He repeated all tests plus added some and they all came back normal. He said that Neurontin was a good med for sarcoid. He didn't say I had it. My first diagnosis from another Neuro was that I had Neurosarc. But she wanted a second opinion so she sent me on. The new guy said he would start treating the symptoms and if I had no improvement he would send me to Mayo.
My question is this:
Does anyone have experience with Neurontin? My pharmacist said he has never in his career seen anyone prescribed so much daily. How much do you take? I do need pain relief and some quality of life back. The Cymbalta has helped with my over all mood. And I am in hopes that the Neurontin will take away the pain. Will it stop the the tingling (feels like electric current)?
Thanks for you
