Ruby8, thanks for your response. Did gabapentin ever make you dizzy at all? That's the side effect I worry about it. On the bottle, it says it may cause dizziness or drowsiness. I hate dizziness so I hope it doesn't cause it for me. I haven't started them yet. I'm going to start them tonight I think. Does it help the numbness at all or is it just for pain management? My neuro started me out with 100 mg tablets 3 times a day.
