You are fortunate, I took it for three weeks and couldn't remember anything. Where I put the laundry, couldn't do my crossword puzzles, and was angry most of the time. I QUIT IT….and just take my INSULIN and my Glucophage and a tiny blood pressure pill LISINOPRIL. AM TRYING the relatively new METANX which is supposed to clean out the veins in the body and flush them out. GABAPENTIN made me forget my own name and a lot of other normal things. I am 76 in a few weeks. WILL JUST LIVE WITH THE HOT SPLASHES OF PAIN in the legs and feet until I find something that works. Had a DOCTOR in the ER tell me the truth, they DO NOT KNOW how to fix anything with late term DIABETES which I have since May of 1995. TWENTY SIX YEARS SOON…it worsens over time. Saw a NEUROLOGIST, he took an MRI of the spine, and gave me GABAPENTIN which I cannot take. Now what? I get everybody is different and responds differently with meds…GUESS that is true…GOOD LUCK…M.,
