    Hello,

    I have been on Gabapentin 600mg x 4 times daily for 14 years.  I also take codiene 60mg x 3 times daily so you can mix iin 'normal' analgesia on doctor's advice.  I have been lucky to have no side effects on a day to day basis. I did see a specialist who said the dosage I was on 300 mg x 3, was no good for my problem.  Thank goodness for modern medicine with all it's imperfections, it does at least give us pain sufferers a life.  Maybe not the one we would like but a life, severe continuous pain takes some living with and Gabapentin is a big help.

      Hi,

      ive been on 300mg x 3 with no luck so doc says to increase slowly over next couple of weeks so i end up taking 3 x 300mg daily 3 x a day. Hope it works.

    Hi, I take gabapentin 4 times daily x 3 x300 plus codiene 6 tablets daily and paracetamol up to 8 tabs daily. Sometimes it makes me sleepy but it eases my pain. Hope you soon find a dosage that suits you.

    I take 3 x 300mg gabapentin pills night and morning for leg pain from spinal stenosis also I am to take naproxen pills  3 times a day, but I just take  one as needed. I used volteran pills for along time with good resuts but the Dr. said they have found it hard on kidneys. so he changed me over to gabapentin and naproxen.   Ron
