How long can Neurontin be taken?
Is it ok to take for extended time to treat nerve issues
can be taken depending on underlying cause
Hi, thanks for using Healthcaremagic.
I went through your query and understood your concerns.
Neurontin contains gabapentin, used to treat neuralgia(nerve related pain). It basically reduces nerve pain, can be taken for longer duration depending on response to medication. Once pain comes under control then slowly we need to reduce dose and stop neurontin. Should not stop medication abruptly. There are no know side effects with prolonged use but in few patients with prolonged use has shown mood disturbances and neuralgia. So depending on your response better to adjust dose and slowly discontinue it under your doctors guidance.
Hope i answered your query. Feel free to ask further related query.
