Why is my Neurontin (gabapentin) Not Working?

Many times we have patients that have tried neurontin and reported it does not work.  However, they dont realize the normal minimal dose needed to get a benefit is 1200 mg/day. 

On occasion patients try it and only go to 300 or 600 mg /day and then think it doesn’t work.  Make sure you give your meds a chance to work and follow the prescriptions before stopping. 

Please inform your doctors why the medicine was not working and what dose you were taking.  Many times, we just need to increase the dose more before a benefit comes.
