In brief: Sometimes

Neurontin (gabapentin) can be an effective therapy for a peripheral neuropathy.
It is not universally successful and you may need a higher dose before you can determine in this medication will help.

In brief: Helps relieve sympto

This is average dose.
Neurontin (gabapentin) helps peripheral neuropathy. If partially helpful, and without side effects, consider increasing dose. If not helping, consider change to different medicine.
