I am taking thes medications because of a herniated disk and severe groin pain while sitting. My neurogist prescribed  lyrica yesterday -one 50mg  at bedtime. I did not take any neurontin today as 

    need to take the lyrica tonight and the neuroligist told me not to take both neurontin and lyrica together. I feel agitated and restless tonight and am wondering if I should take the Lyrica tonight?

    I'm not sure I understand your question.  You said your neurologist told you to take the Lyrica at bedtime and not to take the Neurontin and Lyrica together.  Then you said you hadn't taken Neurontin today and wondered if you should take the Lyrica tonight.  Unless I'm misunderstanding you, it sounds like that is what your doctor told you to do.  If I did misunderstand, please clarify and ask your question again.

    Neurontin has Never been clinically tested for chronic pain and Drs were given kick backs to prescribe it.

    Check this article out, www.ducky50.nav.to   on the left menu look for the neurontin article.

    I was on it 2 weeks, I seen blue airplanes in my yard, and my husband found me in the closet talking to the clothes hangers.  I hate it and hate hearing that they are still prescribing it.
