  1. My name is Karen Tobin and i would like to show you my personal experience with Neurontin.

    I have taken for 4 months. I am 54 years old. Was taking 1800 mg per day for pain, numbness and scalp soreness. It helped immensely and right now am weaning off of it taking 300mg two times daily with no noticeable side effects.

    I have experienced some of these side effects-
    Drowsiness and dizziness.

    I hope this information will be useful to others,
    Karen Tobin
