I have herniated disc at L4 and 5 impinging on S1. I was put on Neurontin (gabapentin) which worked great for 2 weeks. Any suggestions?

In brief: Nerve root pain

Perhaps all you need is a slightly higher dose of neurontin (gabapentin).
Other treatments that may be helpful are physical therapy, traction treatment, rest, ibuprofen, and sometimes other medicines like amitriptyline.
