Ok, so I had my node biopsy on Thursday...I was feeling better, my pain is almost gone...only bad when I move...lol.
Anyway, the dr had given me Gabapentin (prescription) and tylenol 3...I'm not using the tylenol anymore, but I don't know if I'm supposed to stay on the Gabapentin...apparently it's for nerve pain...which I don't have so far.
Was anyone else given this? Did you have to take if for the full 2 weeks?
I'm finding the side effects are really bothering me...I'm awake for about 4 hrs, then I crash - like it's totally uncontrollable, and I sleep for 4-5 hrs at a time. This means that in the middle of the night, I might be on my awake time, which means I can't sleep at all and of course when my family is awake, I am sleeping...go figure...
Just wondering if anyone has been on this drug...the dr never explained what it was for, the nurse just said the dr left the prescription for me...so I don't know what to do.
Any info would be appreciated...I won't go off the meds until I talk to the dr, but I'd like to know why I'm taking it.
thx and take care all.
