I was offered neurontin for this a few months ago, but declined because I take enough pills and really didn't want to add any more to the list, BUT, ready to call and request a prescription.
I have had great benefits with 900mg neurontin three times a day, it also seems to help with any depression or anxiety the pain causes.... I still take few breakthrough lortab, but rarely, usually in the season change from fall to winter, feels like my ear is on fire and someones stabbing me. I'm not a doctor but the neurontin causes no side effects, bad that is for me, its a great medicine for myself. I'm not promoting but if your doctor recommended it?
