    Hi Roger. You are the first person that I have heard from that has had little problem in getting off the Gabapentin. How long did you take in reducing dosages? Did you experience any difficulties with withdrawal? Let me know the dosages used. I've heard so many scary stories. please give details about your experiences with the drug. And is Lyrica that successful in pain relief from nerve damage?
