unknown if due to Rx or stress from being a teacher (with four/five different classes)
Had knee replacement. Have non-union scaphoid fracture. Torn rotator cuff and dislocated shoulder.
Was doing very well when started Neurontin, but the last few months I have been experiencing extreme moodiness and irritability. Is there something I can do to change why this is happening. Taking the drugs at different times or maybe, taking the Neurontin with a certain food. How do I feel good again. My marriage my not take much more of this. When I take a dose of Neurontin the irritability gets worse. If I do not take it then I feel the effects of withdrawal. That is even worse. This drug is highly addictive to my body. I became horribly ill when trying to get off of it. It helped my anxiety so much in the beginning and now It just make me a mess. Help! Docs say this is not caused from the Neurontin? That Neurontin would do just the opposite. It did in the beginning but now its not working properly. What can I do?
