Discussions that mention zonegran

Pain Management board


I tried to take Neurontin but ended up with the same side effects as those already mentioned. I was goofy, lost my memory, seemed to be off-balance, etc. etc. My PM doc has put me on a drug that is supposed to be "like" Neurontin. It's called Zonegran. I take 3 100 mg. capsules at night and I should be going up to 4 soon. I have had no side effects from this drug except loss of appetite. You'd have to check the web to see if it acts in a similar fashion as the other pills that effect nerve pain. Or, you can ask Dave. Whatever its intended use, it sure has helped my nerve pain. All the best to you. KathyMac
