Did your Dr. tell you to taper off of the Neurontin? One time Hubby was on Gabapentin and stopped cold and got strange symptoms. His eyes crossed and he couldn't balance, but that only lasted for an evening. They are nasty things and can really mess you up. At least the pain pills have been around for a long time and the effects of taking them are well documented, most of these other pills are practically experimental.
I will get off my soap box, don't know if I answered your question. The thing that helped him the most was to get his Blood Glucose numbers down below 90.
