marie:

Missed it. Any interesting new stuff?

Of course, you know my big beef on the subject---- neurontin and all associated drugs used for nerve pain are used as such off label and thus the FDA will not allow the drug companies to give use samples.

Ed,

This is not good. Neurotinin in my opinion is a very important medication that we used in podiatry to help alot of patient. I hope that this too shall pass.

See my coments on the Social and Tarsal tunnel boards. The net effect of this poorly written segment is that it may make it harder for those in need to get their meds.
