 3  Shingles back and breast pain Dizzy off balance in morning Helps but have 2 week pack that goes up to 1800 last dose. I am 115 lbs afraid to take that dose. Feeling iff balance with 600mg F 66 0 days

 5  Nerve pain neck and back Walking zombie in the mornings- Sometimes emotional crying It helps but my one major concern is the addiction part. I was so happy to be taking Gralise and it helping ALOT until I found out you can become addicted and also you will have withdrawals if you try to get off them. I attempted to quit taking them one night and I was up all night with pretty bad pain so I finally took ONE at 5 a.m. in the morning. I couldn't stand it anymore. So I'm a little pissed off I probably won't be able to stop taking until I have a week to plan the suffering. I'm a little pissed that these doctors don't tell patients they will go through withdrawals if they attempt to quit. If you haven't taken Gralise yet I recommend you don't take that 1st pill but I also understand it gets so exhausting having pain 24/7-- I just don't know what to do. My brain is telling me to stop taking but I keep taking. F 49 6 months

 3  Neuropathy and nerve pain I took Gabapentin and got a bit more pain relief from it for some reason, but couldn’t stand always feeling so spacey, starving and unsafe to drive.

GRALISE  (GABAPENTIN):  This medication is used to relieve nerve pain following shingles (a painful rash due to herpes zoster infection) in adults. This condition is called postherpetic neuralgia. Gabapentin belongs to a class of drugs known as antiseizure drugs (also called anticonvulsant or antiepileptic drugs).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
