Pregabalin and gabapentin set to become controlled drugs

Comment

From personal experience, for sciatica, which was causing me to have to crawl to bathroom, 24 hrs gabapentin allowed me to carry on working. On for 2 weeks and then stopped as really slows the brain down, but was completely fantastic for pain. Anecdotal I know, but short courses would possibly seem the way forward.
