    Hi,
    I'm brand new to this website and what an informative website it is.
    To give you an idea of my background, I have suffered from non-diabetic peripheral neuropathy since August 2011.
    I was prescribed Gapapentin, which did not have any effect. I am now on Zydol and at last am leading an almost normal life practically free from pain.
    I would love to talk to anybody else who might suffer from this horrible problem.

    Thank you, Lesley_J

    Hi, welcome to the site. the drug Gabapentin seems to be prescribed for alsorts these days. Its an anti epilectic drug. I was prescribed it for a persistant cough, when I questioned this my GP said it was good for nerve pains, but my pain is arthritic. Glad you have now been given a different drug and it works. Sorry I don't have your illness, it was just the drug prescribed was the same. Hope you find someone with like illness soon to chat to
