Your GP if she is confident and the question of whether they are the same has been asked in a couple of other posts some regarding CFS some ME and basically we dont know there are so many different thoughts, have a read through the other posts and maybe you'll get a clearer picture.

Some of the posts have links in them so that may help too :hugs: :hugs: :flowers:

Hi nutty
It was the neuro doc who put me on them, i was getting server migraines so they started to play around with my meds, i put on 2 stone with them over 6 months but they did nothing for me so i weaned of them.
Some people they work great for and others they dont. :dunno:

nutty

when you say 6 gabas per day what strength are they.

i take 3 x 300mf but i have had a reaallly bad day, or week to be honest since we had a daytrip to london on saturday. saw a show it was great but have been paying for it eversince.

so i started popping more pills today to try and get rid of pain - i know some people take alot more gabas and i tell doc if i up my dose as i always research and he trusts me. but wondered how much you are on as some go up to about 2000 in total per day adn i am only on 900 mg at moment.
thanks


by 6pm had had enough so took my dosulepin which help me sleep so am feeling well chilled at last.
