Gabapentin

In 2003 a new study funded by the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases measuring the effectiveness of GABAPENTIN, an anticonvulsant medication, in reducing symptoms of fibromyalgia syndrome. It is a neurotin drug used primarily in epilepsy. However, it is also prescribed for secondary conditions such as menopause hotflashes.

Has anyone here tried it or know someone who has; results? Negatives? Dependency risks? Thanks for ANY info on it.
