65 year old woman taking Gabapentin for Nerve pain

I wish I knew it would interfere with my active life -- I got short of breath easily. It does help me sleep and the pain is gone but the side effects are awful, not worth it.

41 year old man taking Metformin for Type 2 diabetes

Start dose low and escalate slowly. Expect mild nausea at start and with dose increases. It will go away, so stick with it. I feel fine now. I am convinced that this medicine also helped me lose weight too, thus improving my glucose #s.
