Yes, its good I have barely any pain. It took a week to settle in to it though, I was high as a kite initially! So start on a quiet week.
100mg is a very low daily dose of gabapentin. I'm on between 300-600mg a day, taken in one dose, at night, for neuropathic pain and, whilst it's not totally ineffective, it generally needs backing up with opiates to reduce pain to an extent where I can lie down for long enough to fall asleep. It's function, as far as I am concerned, is mainly to counter the opiates effect of ramping up neuropathic pain over time, and I need the opiates to deal with other sorts of pain.
The info sheet suggests that a normal starting dose of gabapentin is 300mg 3 times a day (from day 3), so......

As far as I know gabapentin does absolutely nothing for non neuropathic pain, but your mileage may vary.
My rheumatologist prescribed gabapentin for my CFS pain. Around 100 mg. Has anyone else here taken it and if so has it helped?
I overreact to many medicines too unfortunately. Fingers crossed.
How about side effects or emotional on gabapentin; did it work and did you feel ‘otherworldly’ or spacey on it?After doing some research I asked my docs to prescribe gabapentin for pain rather than the tramadol I had been on through the VA. Taking 600mg at night and 100mg during the day two to three times a day. Amazing results so far. Far better sleep, far more energy (to an extent at least, still need to not overdo it) and less malaise. Lyrica was useless but gabapentin as a generic is very cheap and the dosage can be manipulated to quite high levels.
Good find something better than the usual narcotic regime.
