Hi At the beginning of December I started a course of gabapentin (used for epilepsy amongst other disorders)) I now take 300mgms three times a day and have experienced a marked improvement in my very regular headaches. I have also gone part-time in my sometimes stressful job but did not have this improvement when I had Nov off work.

i have tried most preventative drugs without this improvement so i am keeping my fingers crossed. I am very aware that what works for one person may not work for another though.

This drug was suggested by a neurologist whom i went to see initially about botox which, of course is not funded yet. HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYONE!!

Wonderful news..I have heard of many people who have had great success with gabapentin and am really pleased you are one of them.

I hope you go from strength to strength on it.

Tee thanks for contacting me. I continue to feel better on the drug Gabapentin although cannot rule out the benefit of going part time in my busy job.

The headaches I get at the moment are not as bad as before and I am not taking the Triptans very often.

I did have a follow up with the consultant neurologist and he said that he would not consider botox for me as I was better on drug treatment. It would be nice not to have to take so many tablets though.

I enjoy being active and look forward to cycling a lot more now i am part retired although house, garden and family are taking up more time now than ever!!! Lucky me!!

best wishes Steve
