Dosing of Gabapentin for epic Migraines, tinnitus, nerve pain. Is 1500mg or above a reasonable dosage? I don't want to press my doc, but 900mg is fine, and 1200mg is a bit better, but still not efficaceous enough. I've read that for nerve pain people g
That is reasonable: Often times when treating people with nerve pain the dose of gabapentin needs to be titrated up until the effective dose is reached (since the effective dose is different for each individual). The maximum recommended dose is 3600mg per day, so 1500mg is well within a safe range. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Lamotrigine for migraines, "visual snow," tinnitus...? Gabapentin doesn't do enough for me, doc recommended this as an option, how common are the side effects? What do you think of this drug as an option? He talked about other anti-epileptics like Depak
My opinion: I am NOT impressed with either lamotrigine or gabapentin, as preventatives for migraine headaches, and feel that Depakote, beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and topirimate are far superior. OTC remedies also work, such as butterbur, riboflavin, CoQ10, magnesium, feverfew. BOTOX also. ?headache specialist? ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
