I was on it ’20 & ‘21 @ 1800 mg…pinched nerve thoracic spine. My case was post injections, 2 didn’t work and then had to abort 2 attempts due to swelling in spinal cord. Gabapentin or surgery were 2 options, fortunately it worked for me. Assuming you are starting low and increasing daily until..I got a new pain med. Gabapentin. Hope it works well.
^^^This^^^ Susan takes Lyrica for fibromyalgia and it's in the same family of drugs as Gabapentin. It takes a little while for it to build up in your system to start really being effective. It's not like taking a vicodin for quick pain relief.
It definetly causes you to be sleepy/drowsy as until your body becomes accustomed to it. I started at 1-100mg/day. Then 2-110 mg/ day. Then 3… I needed up at 1800mg/day for 2 years. That along with other meds and I couldn’t sleep enough. Slowly got better.When I took Gabapentin, I had to make sure I had 8 hours to sleep. Cause if I had to go to work in 4 hours... I'd oversleep for work.
These are 300 mg capsules. Take 1 each night for 3 nights, then move up to 2 a day, for 3 more days, then move to 3 per day.It definetly causes you to be sleepy/drowsy as until your body becomes accustomed to it.

I say change it and keep the Avatar at least for awhile. That's what most people seem to use anyways.I posted this in another thread and thought I’d get y’all’s opinion too…
Short version: I’ve been thinking about changing my handle to streamline with other platforms I’m on. Is that something people do and not a big deal? Or a no-no, since everyone already knows me as Rainmaker?
Longer version: I originally signed up on INGO 11 years ago. But at that time my computer was my only device that would connect and I just never got on. I honestly forgot that I even signed up. Last year I went to sign back up and was reminded that I already had. I’ve been surprised how last 6 months I’ve really got sucked in to INGO culture and community. I shouldn’t have waited so long to get involved. On all other platforms I go by Firehawk. A long time ago I bought a Firebird Formula as project car that I’m redoing into a Firehawk clone. I’ve never really liked the Rainmaker handle and Firehawk is a lot more personal to my life now.
I recently found out Admin can change it. So change it? Or not a big deal and just keep it?
