I had l4 l5 laminectomy discotomy last Jan. After immediate release of all pain in 2-3 weeks it began to creep back with numbing and tingling then sciatic pain all the way down my leg. My wife is a PTA and she keeps me working on core strengthening. That's a huge help!!! My doctor prescribed 100-200mg Gabepentin twice a day as needed. I take 2 tabs on the morning and sometimes 2 in the afternoon. Some days none at all. It has been an amazing help with no side effects that I can tell. I for one am sold on Gabepentin as a cheap and effective pain med for my sciatica. Welcome to Spine-Health
