Dear PB,
Thanks for the kind thoughts. I am feeling much better today but am taking it very easy. I helped a friend move and way overdid it, cleaning with chemicals and such. This fibro stuff is so vexing. But I'm glad I have Neurontin in my arsenal, even though it merely muffles things rather than totally alleviates.

How much Neurontin do you take and what is your dosage/timing? Do you take breaks from it? I don't follow any schedule with it, just take it as needed, but perhaps should take it prophylactically. I do like it very much, just chills things out nicely and then wears off before too long.

Haven't noticed the orgasm thing, but with life as it's been for so long and my husband just getting out of his own dysthymia, I'll tell ya, friskyness has not been high on the priority list. But when it does happen, no problem.

I've been gulping handfulls of neurontin, probably about 9 caps so far and can't get that good feeling. Feels like my gaba receptors are clogged, worn out. I don't know. This is when I could really use what Neurontin sometimes provides. Only, it's not happening. - Barbara
