hi. I am a male aged 52yrs weight 80kg diabitic my doctor has recently advised me gabapentin nt 400 for neuropathy earlier i was on pregab150 so while checking about the reviews from the patients on net i found that 99% were against gabapentin which confused me and thought to have a 2nd opinion kindly advise
Hi. Welcome to icliniq. I am Dr Anshul Varshney for your help.
It's an excellent drug. Infact it's an elder sister of Pregabalin only. Gabapentin is little more potent then Pregabalin. Only possible side effect of that drug is dizziness but since your mother has been on Pregabalin 150 mg then Gabapentin should suit her. Gabapin NT also contains Nortryptilline, which helps further in neuropathic pain.
Dear, if you will check side effects / reviews of any drugs you would get for all. If in doubt, discuss with your doctor once again being empathetic. I use this drug very often and most of the Diabetologists use it. So, I would suggest you to start it and see if she gets any adverse effects, we can go for other options.
Though to be very honest we don't have much options other then Pregabalin or Gabapentin in Diabetic Neuropathy. I hope it helps you. If you have any further questions please ask me.
