Does Anyone Have Experience Taking Low-dose Neurontin For Migraine Prevention?

A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

I took low-dose Neurontin (100 mg) at night for about 20 years for nerve pain not related to migraine. I had infrequent migraines before and during those years with neurontin
I stopped taking the Neurontin about three years ago
About a year after stopping the Neurontin, my migraines went from my having 1-4 short episodes a YEAR to having 5 to 15 of migraine days a MONTH. It’s now been 2-3 years of severe chronic migraines.
I read an article about Neurontin recently as a preventative for… read more

Anyone else have luck BeKooool Soft Gel Sheets? Tamed my migraine last night. That plus 2 tabs of advil. Had a small cup of coffee with dinner. Might have been the cause. Anyway, it really helped.

Amytriptaline/Trazadone

A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi everyone. I have been on 50mg of trazadone for 2 weeks. It makes me sleep which has been great, but the next day i feel awful and so tired, even when I do sleep. My neuro prescribed amytriptaline instead since the trazadone is giving me weird side effects. Does anyone have experience or think that the amytriptaline might work for me if the trazadone didn't? I'm scared it will do the same thing.

Memory Loss

A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Howdy again, Migraine Warriors. I'm dealing with a symptom that seems to have dual causes & I'm curious who else struggles with it & how they deal with it, especially ways to reverse the effects. Memory loss. Like, severe dementia-style memory loss. Scary, will-i-wake-up-tomorrow-&-not-know-who-i-am scary. My causes seem to be migraine compounded by years of gabapentin (neurontin) use. I've gotten several responses from my PCP about it from 'your only option is to quit the gabapentin & hope for… read more

Neurontin

A MyMigraineTeam Member asked a question 💭

Hi has anyone experience with really bad fatigue with gabapentin? My doctor started me off on 100mg and gradually increased it to 300mg. I have only been taking the 300mg for 2 days but I fell so sleepy. Does this pass? If so how long did it take to pass? On the up side it is helping with my migraines so I am thankful for that

A MyMigraineTeam Member

I found that the sleepiness wears off after a couple of weeks. taking it at bedtime is
great advice
