Get a new p-doc!!! BTW, I'm starting Neurontin now too. I haven't gotten my prescription filled yet though. I'll let you know how it goes.

> I went to the doc today to get the persc. She said to take 150mg in am and 2 150mg tabs at night. When I got to the pharmacy I noticed SHE DIDN'T SIGN THE STUPID THING. Then the pharmacy called home and said it doesnt' come in 150mg doses they will call her tomorrow. She promised me a small dose...I thought 100mg a day tops! I don't do well taking pills in the morning. Often forget and had to stop with the catapres cause made me too tired..had to leave work early once I was sooooo tired almost falling asleep. Also some mornings I'm up at 8am others not till 1/2pm. That doesn't make for an even dosing schedule. I'll try talking toher next week when I see her.
