I got a new pain management doctor about 6 months ago. Im on roxicodone 6x a day, roxicodone 4x a day(breakthrough pain)(half the dose), Xanax 2.5x a day, and soma 3x a day. I can bearly move. I was getting that from my last doctor also, and it was no help, and then his price went up, so i could not afford him, and moved to this new doctor. this new doctor gives me the same meds, but he has also given me something for my sciatica. he started off given me cymbalta. after 3 months there were no results, so he moved me to topiramate. i took that for two months. Now this month he has given me something new called neuontin. My friend has it, and he says it works miricles. I just got my script filled today for it, and i began taking it twice daily. Its 300mg. I was wondering if anyone has ever taken this drug before. If so, then how did it work for you? I am still young, and im a fulltime college student, and also work full time, and i dont want to be on pain medication my whole life. Is this really a miricle drug? my friend told me that it worked right away for him, but my doctor said to make sure to take it everyday without missing a dose, because it takes some time. thankyou for any input.
