Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Gabapentin does help with neuropathy related pain.

The dose can be started as 300 mg twice daily and can be increaed slowly upto 2400 mg daily to control symptoms effectively.

Other options will be:

1. Cymbalta 60 mg daily

2. Pregabalin 50 to 200 mg daily

3. Nortriptyline 25 to 75 mg daily
