    Most people find Neurotin (gabapentin generic) to help with neurologic pain it is available in many doses so if you try it ,it may take a while to find the correct dose for you.

    Hi, been diagnosed for 21 years, found that anti- epileptic medicine control the burning restless legs, so nice to sleep. If I skip the meds I don't sleep. My Dr. explained that my brain keeps on sending messages and that epilepsy works in kind of in the same way.

    All of the best
