My doctor prescribed Neurontin for my nerve pain. I was only on it for about 2 weeks when I had to stop taking it. Even at the lowest dose I was very spacey and had several episodes of falling while I was walking. It was very hard to keep my balance. My doctor now has me on something called Zonegran 300 mg. at nightime. The doc told me it is an alternative to the Neurontin and the good news for me is the lack of negative side effects! I do think it has helped my nerve pain. I think the generic name on my bottle of pills is Zonisamide. You might want to consider this drug if appropriate. Good luck - Kathy Mac
