neurontin for nerve/back pain
3 years ago I had unsuccessful back surgery (emergency) leaving nerve damage, pressure and electric shocks every evening - night. I took neurontin for 1 year and weened off because it took away my short memory and made my arms numb! I tried several other drugs and due to my extreme drug sensitivity, I only use 50-100mg Darvocet once at night. But that isn't good for my liver right? So, please tell me in layman's terms, WHY CAN I NOT TAKE NEURONTIN "as needed"? Will it hurt me to do this? Will my heart or brain suffer? I've only been told, 'it isn't meant to be taken that way." But I would like to know why.
