@margaretob What a remarkable idea! I'm glad to hear that it is working for you.

I am fine, I left the addictive TRAMADOL which makes you nutty anyway, and did the five hour OTC downsize. Now I take one Gabapentin a.m. one Gabapentin 300 p.m. and TWO at NIGHT…works fine….I can sleep for several hours also and that helps.
THE DOCTOR IN THE ER told me this to get down off any addictive meds. IT WORKS…GABA is not addictive but does make your mouth a little dry so some mints (sugarless) help….I actually FEEL BETTER…hope this helps somebody besides me…M.
