Smile Gabapentin

Hi Everyon,

I was wondering if anybody has switched from Gabapentin to something else? My doctor has told me the highest dose she will go is 1800mg, and I'm already at 1200mg. I've upped it myself to 1500mg., but it's not giving me the relief I initially was getting from it. So if anyone has switched from Gabapentin for neuropathy pain, what are you taking now? Any help would be appreciated.

THANKS

My doctor is keeping me at 1800 a day. Theraputic levels are 1500+ and he says I would not notice a difference between what I am taking now and say 3000 and it makes sence to me.
