I have severe Osteoarthritis and have been on vicodin for over a year now. It has become less effective in controling my pain. I am weening off the vicodin and starting Nuerontin and have found the Nuerontin is more than effectively managing my pain and actually does so for a much longer period of time than the vicodin has. I am pleased with the Nuerontin.

Great that it works for you. Neurontin is an anti-seizure drug. It has been found to help with certain kinds of pain, especially if the pain is from some kind of nerve issue. I had no success with it and couldn't tolerate the side effects. Bottom line, use whatever works for you.
