Ok. I know quite a bit about gabapentin bc of my husband's nerve pain. He takes 900 mg a day. I'm not going to lie and bc of the new laws about narcotics gabapentin is probably the next best thing some people but not most. Gabapentin is like Lyrica with all the side effects. a cause my husband to have restless leg syndrome plus he felt like lightning was going down his back and legs. Especially if he took a couple more than his normal dose. I also have gabapentin for my arthritis in my fibromyalgia and endometriosis. It did almost the same exact thing to me plus it's made me feel like I had something sitting on my chest at night. And it caused us both to have nightmares. I remember correctly that during the day it actually felt like you've been drinking but you haven't kind of like a easy fogginess in your head.trazodone has probably been one of the best sleeping medications to help your legs rest. If you have any more questions please message me back.
