hi guys

I was diagnosed January this year and was put on paracetamol, tramadol and amitriptyline at night. month to 6 wks later tramadol was swapped with codeine and had no affect so was told to stop in addition to this was given gabapentin which gradually went up to 600mg.

Saw Gp today still got paracetamol, gabapentin now on 900mg gradually working it in to 3 times a day, but back on tramadol as we thought would try it again as it does seem to take a bit of pain away more than codeine did. only took 900mg gabapentin 2x50mg tramadol and paracetamol as advised by GP who is actually a nice one but my balance is all over place and at times feel like in a world of my own and falling asleep. Can someone tell me is this normal and do I have to decide if can stay like this or go back to being in total pain even though takes it off a bit to a manageable threshold.

this is on a months trail as have monthly reviews and we have spoke about duloxetine 30-60mg once a day to replace amitriptyline and pregabalin 75 to replace gabapentin any advice please.

You may find that as you get used to the increased Gabapentin dosage, as well as the Tramadol, that things start to settle back down. With a change in dosage, as well as adding something else into the mix, it's not unusual to experience some degree of side effects.

If things don't start to settle down, or get too much for you, then another GP Appt may be necessary.

:fingerscrossed: :fingerscrossed: things settle down quickly Robbie, as Flup has said its early days yet so definitely see your GP if things become unmanageable
