Med question...

The P.A. @ my Neuro's office is starting me on a med that is like Neurontin and Lyrica, but I THINK it begins with a P. It was over the phone, so I didn't quite catch what it was called. Anyone know any meds like Neurontin and Lyrica? Just trying to figure out the name so I can research it. I refuse to take Neurontin again, it killed my memory so bad. I couldn't find any words that I was looking for in my head, it was like, pieces of the puzzle in my head were missing. HATE that stuff. Lol.

Anyone have any ideas?


  • Pregablin?
    DDD of lumbar spine with sciatica to left hip,leg and foot. L4-L5 posterior disc bulge with prominent facets, L5-S1 prominent facets with a posterior osteocartilaginous bar. Mild bilateral foraminal narrowing c-spine c4-c7 RN
  • No, that's the generic name for Lyrica. But now I'm wondering if it even begins with a P or not. Blah. I guess I'll find out eventually. Haha :)

    Thanks for the suggestion!

  • Gabapenten? That's the generic for Neurotin (but you probably know that already).
  • It's not that one. I was on Neurontin before... I hate that medicine sooooooo much. It totally fried my brain.

    Thanks though :)
