Brand or generic???????????

I started with Lyrica and had the twitching and jerking bad. So, I went to Neurontin (generic). The side effects are a little better, but still bother me. I was wondering if switching to brand name Neurontin might help some????????

Does anyone have any experience with this?????/

Thanks guys!!

No one can answer that question but you. Everyone has a different body chemistry so about the only thing you can do is try the name brand and see what happens.

Re: Brand or generic???????????

Sorry, but I was looking for people who have tried both. I know when it comes to pain meds, the brand is generally better/stronger.

Just wanted to see what others had experienced. I don't think I have done this with anything but my pain meds.

So, if anyone can give me their experience, I would really appreciate it.

Thank you all!!!!
