My doc added this to my meds last winter to calm down my peripheral neuropathy. It's been working like a charm, right from the beginning. But since I started, I've had all sorts of odd little things going on.... finally added them all up after (another) look at the possible side effects. I think I have some degree of almost everthing mentioned (the one that send me searching was sudden awareness of how much weight I've gained in the last few months).

So, obviously something I can't take. I've had bad memory lapses, edema, double vision, on and on. I think just the weight would be worth taking the drug, but all together is just too much. But are there alternatives? When she gave it to me, my doc described it as being the most benign in it's group.

I'm really getting tired of dealing with all of this. Wouldn't it be nice if we could take a vacation from our bodies now and then?
