I'm new to the sciatica forum (but have been on here for heart health reasons) as I have been suffereing quite badly for the last 3 months, to the point of debilitation some days. I'm sure many of you have it worse, but I'd like to ask a simple question if I may.
I finally got a GP to take some notice of the pain levels and I'm now on gabapentin and zapain while I await a referral.
I was so glad to be given *something* I didn't really bother asking too much. I understand the zapain is a straight up pain killer but I'm a little unsure - even after reading up - what to expect of the gabapentin?
is it also a pain killer? I'm on 900mg / day now and although I have pain constantly, I can't be sure which drug is more (or less) effective, if at all?
