From this study (3 weeks ago):
Onset of symptoms started on third day of Savella Titration pack. Immediately stopped medicine (had the 3rd day am dose) by midday spasms and back pain severe, by 6pm unable to walk due to extreme pain. Sent to ER, no response to pain medicine, finally muscle relaxer allowed me to walk again. Sent home on Muscle relaxers. Had MRI - found 1 inch fluid cyst on Pancreas. 5 days later muscles no longer hurt, minimal back pain and able to walk again unassisted.

62 year old Caucasian male. I was prescribed 4 300 mg. capsules of gabapentin to be taken 3 times a day (12 X 300mg/day) to be taken with 3 325 mg. tablets of acetaminophen and 2 50mg.tablets of Tramadol three times daily for lower back pain and bi-lateral osteoarthritis in the hips and knees. I was also prescribed TENS therapy which I apply three times daily for a total of about 4 hours. I have been following this regimen for 6 months. I have experienced significant pain relief and a tremendous improvement in the quality of my life.
I am a Type 2 diabetic prescribed 2 1000 mg. tablets of Metformin and 2 20mg. tablets daily. When diagnosed with Type 2, my A1C was over 10. I changed my diet and with medication have kept my A1C at or below 6.0 for the past 18 months.
The primary response that I have noticed to the gabapentin is that I am more methodical in my thinking than previously.
