I am currently trying 100mg of Neurontin at night (I'm a at day four) and its is making me drowsey almost the entire day after taking it. My doctor wants to slowly increase my dose up to 1,200 mg /day and I have fears if I am now totally destroyed the next day from 100mg, will I be able to increase my dose.
I know that most people get used to this medication over time, but did they start out like me with the 100mg side effect I'm having? Please share your experience with starting this drug. I am going to talk to my doctor this week about it, but I would like to know individual experiences with this drug.
I want to take it if it allows me to decrease my other pain meds, and helps reduce my pain.
