I just had my 2nd epidural shot today for L5 and L4 right side nerve root and was telling my doctor I was getting no relief from the 1st epidural. I also told him I'm having a hard time "just staying in bed" 90% of my awake time from pain. Getting restless and want to do more around the house.
He prescribed Neurontin 300mg and for me to take it at bedtime.
I asked if there were any psychological problems with this, he knows see a psychologist for panic attacks and other problems and I take atavan/sequel and remeron.
I read the reaction list the pharmacy gave me and that scarred me.
Almost gave me a panic attack.
I called my psychologist and left a message for her to call me.. no return call.
My doctor that prescribed it to me said try it.
Question to allow our great forum people.
What type of reactions did you have to it?
I know everyone is different and i'm not asking if i should try it.
I just want to know your experiences with it.
