I hope everyone is having a good day, comfortable as possible! I have a question for those on nerve meds- has anyone taken Neurontin and Zonegran at the same time? I have been on Neurontin for YEARS, and as anyone who has just tried to quit it knows, the withdrawals are TORTURE! Zonegran isn't strong enough to just swap, so I'm weaning down the Neurontin as I up the Zonegran... I just don't know if they should be taken together? My Neurontin dose was max- 3200mg a day- so I want to cut it comfortably, not necessarily on any 'schedule'...
Now I'm sure you're wondering why I don't ask my doctor. My doctors aren't familiar enough with this med- in fact, they don't even know what a proper dose for me should be. But thats ok with me! I actually asked for it, even knowing that they were unfamiliar (and a tad uncomfortable). I have been on it before, so I know I can tolerate it, and it helps. Not as much as the Neurontin, but... I have recently lost 25 lbs, and have 10 to go, so I'm temporarily switching out the Neurontin to speed that up!! Especially since Zonegran helps curb my appetite BIG TIME! Hey- might as well use it to my advantage, right? Not very often I can do that!
So, after all my rambling, has anyone taken these 2 together for any period of time?
