    In short, I have chronic pain from permanent nerve damage association with a car accident, degenerative disc disease, and a transforaminal interbody fusion of L5-S1, and L4-L5; because of the trafficking in prescription narcotics, my physician is genuinely afraid to prescribe me T3s now even (took me off Vicodin over the same) and had me try gabasomething that gave me the same symptoms as this; in ...

    My eyesight has always been poor. I am an optician and my eyes are my life. This drugs side effect made my vision "switch sides". I was a 3.50 in the right eye and a 2.50 in the left.

I find I need to use the bath ... Show Full Comment

    Prescribed this after trying Neurontin and Lyrica with all the side effects and no help. Been on it (dosage - 25 mg/1 daily) for a month now, lost the 7 pounds I gained on the above two drugs, pain is mostly gone in my feet and my appetite has been curbed.
