I am taking this medication for nerve damage. It does its job, but it makes me very sleepy. I would rather deal with the pain than be sleepy all of the time.

The reason for taking this drug was for a feeling, I wanted to jump out of my skin, I could not sleep or get comfortable in any form

I have several medical conditions which cause Neuropathic pain along with other chronic pain issues, therefore this medication with other pain medication does cause a drowsy effect. However the relief from the burning, stabbing, shooting pain outweighs the side effect most of the time.

Since I take many meds for various reasons, I can not speak to the side effects. I am sad because my ins. co. has jacked up the co-pay so I can't pay. It really helped my fibromyalgia. Any substitute suggestions?

The one side effect I do not like is daytime drowsiness and groggy feeling during the daytime hours.
