Diagnosed with pseudo-gout in August 2014, have had multiple flareups treated with Colcrys. Now doctor wants me to take Gabapentin. I researched and can't figure out why I would take that drug. I even called manufacturer and they told me Gabapentin is not used for pseudo-gout. Has anyone else bee prescribed Gabapentin for pseudo-gout.
