    Default re: Neurontin? Help with w/d?

    BONITA, dont sweat it babe. Hope Ur feelin better today!;)

    SLUGGO, Thanx!. Yah, I know what trazadone is. "what it is, is" I had scored some clonapin and Somas fro my detox and everybody was jumpin on me, I mean, "advising me" not to use them in my detox. Soooo, I scored some trazadone for the impending insomnia.(ugh!)

    Heh, btw, I'm @ 24 hours without anything and feel fine. Well, if you consider bein buzzed as hell off nuerontin"fine", then I'm doin fine..lol...
    (I know that 24 hours aint nuthin but, normally I'd be crawlin the walls by now, makin calls, ect.). I decided to get outta bed to help my chances of sleep tonight.. Man, I'm starvin!... Isit a nuerontin side effect? Damnd!..lol
    Peace Out & God Bless,

    I was taking Neurontin for pain only - 900 mgs around 1.5 years clean. I started up slowly and then just jumped when I started having a lot of side effects. On the other hand, another friend of mine (mimi) had very bad psychotic WD's from the drug and my spouse jumped off of somewhere around 900-1200 mgs and landed in the hospital with thoughts of suicide. Its documented on my thread sometime during the last few pages. This is a drug that is not consistent with everyone. It works very differnt on pain issues, WD and how it affects each of us. Id suggest, after seeing what it did to my spouse, to always taper down slowly.
    In a world of LEFT and RIGHT viewpoints, I try to stay as close to the MIDDLE, if I can...
    Its where I find I can experience the most and be open to the best of what life has to teach me

    Thank you Liny... IMy nurse freind gave me plenty. I only doin 400mgs durin the detox, then she wants me to taper to 200mgs for 5 days, then 100mgs for 5 more. I dont really like sycgh meds but it definately is working with the w/d symptoms.. (btw, she takes 300 mgs everyday! and has been for years)

    Done many withdrawls. Way too many.

    I lost count as to how many, and quite honestly....I just wanted to quit using.

    I was so fearful of going CT. But, the Neurontin I take for other issues totally helped! I heard about it helping, but I was as skeptical as I had been with other things.

    I simply could not believe it. I had VERY minor common CT issues. VERY MINOR. PAWS are almost non existant at this point.

    As the late great James Brown once said, " I feel good!"

    This is my experience with it. I'm not saying it's a cure all. All I'm saying is that it helped me. BTW, I used about 600mg a day split up throughout the day.

    Yep, Rickenbacker. 330s and a 370/12 only though. Cranked through four amps at once. 100W Marshall JCM800 full stack, JMI Vox AC-50 half stack, Ampeg Reverberocket combo, and a Fender Bassman half stack. LOUD, LOUD, LOUD magic. Let it be and to each his own.
