Hi even though I have multiple leisons on brain and spine the neurologist still will not diagnose, but she has suggested the GP prescribing Gabapentin for chronic pain. Was just wondering whether anyone else takes this and if so how effective is it?

@sarah_thornton , primarily an anti-epilepsy treatment, but good for neuropathic (nerve) pain. It doesn't work for everybody. And you need to find the dose that works for you. You might find the following informative :- https://www.mstrust.org.uk/a-z/gabapentin


I was on the max dosage for over a year and it never helped me, but I know it’s helped others.
