    I Take Gabapentin Every Day.

    All it does is helps me relax and sometimes I feel like doing alot of things other days I just want to rest all day.  Makes me feel good and I dont really get that high just a sweet feeling I get.  By the way I am diabetic with right foot nerve pain between my toes.
