What is with all these drugs in the news the past week?!?
Now Neurontin, an anti-epileptic drug that is used to treat some forms of Chronic Pain is under fire. A lawsuit in the US began yesterday with claimants saying this drug is being misrepresented as a pain killer.
Sigh… Am I the only one that starts to feel a bit hopeless in the quest to find proper treatment? I have been on this drug before, and I didn’t benefit from it. It didn’t help with pain control in the least, and I experienced a lot of nasty side-effects from it… SIGH… just one in a group of over 30 meds I have tried that haven’t worked for me.
I do know people who have said that it has made a difference in their overall pain though… that stats are 1 in 5 feel a difference? It is such a crap shoot – us finding what works… we are all so different!!
I just thought I’d pass this article along, considering we have been speaking a LOT about medication here at Graceful Agony in the past weeks…
The past few weeks sure has given me a few things I need to discuss with my medical team next Monday!!!
