Seen my pm this morning. I feel it is so useless going to see him. There is definately a language barrier and he's never there, appts are cancelled and rescheduled all the time because he's "gone".
Ok, so anyways. I am taking 100mg of Neurontin 3 times a day and it's not really doing anything. My Dilaudid has increased in the meanwhile because the pain is insane and unrelenting. (family dr does the dilaudid not the pm..that part confuses me as well) He wants me to go up to 300mg 3 times a day in 2 months!
Is that normal? He was a little upset tht for me it has to be a slow increase and i refused to take an extra 200mg tonight. I kept reminding him I have 2 babies at home, a 12 year old who is really testing me and a husband who is lso testing me. I hve to be somewhat thinking clearly! I am VERY sensitive to the seizure and a/d type meds, pain meds are like vitamins nd don't relly make me loopy at all. I usually get sleepy for the first day or two and then i level off. The Neurontin made me super tired but I gradually went up to 3 a day..now I have to take 6 more??!!! Yikes! Can someone give me some input? How much do you take? Did you gain weight? Are you forgetful?
Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy, and like I said I'm only on 300mg..good grief Charlie Brown!
