I haven't been on here for a while, not that i'm any better.I've just been busy doing therapies and at night when i'm home i'm in bed trying to relax. Suffice to say i'm not on the computer much. I've been taking gabapentin for the last year at 2700mg. My neurologist suggested it to help the laughing that i'm having due to pain since my car accident. She said that there was a mix in the nerves that occurred.My neurologist got very ill and went on a leave of absence from her practice and now my family doc. is taking over for a bit til she comes back just refilling my prescriptions. I explained to her that the gabapentin isn't working very well anymore and i'm having a hard time doing the therapies so she switched me to Lyrica..I went from 2700mg. of gabepentin to 300mg of Lyrica. She told me it was a straight switch but i talked to the pharmacist and she told me if i wanted to wean myself off slowly i could do that as well. As soon as i got down to five tablets of the gabapentin i started to burn really bad and the pain in my stomach was awful.I am not sure what i should do if i should wait it out and see if the Lyrica builds up in my system enough so that the burning goes away or should i call the doctor and see it goes away? What do you guys think,i know there are people on here that have been on both.Please give me some ideas of what to do.
