Hi!
I have an amputation above the knee, right side. I’m dealing with phantom pain 
that is similar to the neuropathy pain I felt
before the amputation only much more 
intense. I’m taking gobs of gabapentin
which works, but I have to take so much
 that I worry about my kidneys. 
Anyone have experience with adding 
meds with the gabapentin? 🙏🏼

    Hey there  @mauhamilton and welcome to the community. 

    I'm sorry to hear about your phantom pain issues. I was only on gabapentin for a few months and didn't have any kidney issues, but I understand your concern.  I'm just going to rename your post and pop it in a different category, so more people in the know will be able to see it and hopefully offer some more support. I hope that's ok? 

     If you need anything, please just ask, we're all here to support each other. If you just wanted to hang out or play some games, I recommend our Coffee lounge and new games area. :)
