For Postherpetic Neuralgia “Shingles rash was painful even after the sores/blisters were gone; thankfully my physician prescribed Horizant and it helped me greatly with only 2 pills a day.”

For Postherpetic Neuralgia “If you have had shingles you know that the pain doesn’t go away after the rash is gone. I couldn’t take it anymore so I talked to a Neurologist who prescribed Horizant twice a day and in one week the pain was already less severe. I have been on this medication for 3 months and feel a lot better.”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “Horizant has given me back my sleep! I take one 600mg tablet at dinnertime and am able to rest without the crazy leg and arm movements that I’ve suffered throughout the night with for years. I wake up feeling fine and not groggy or tired. Thanks Doc!”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “5 years of SEVERE RLS…maximum 2 hours sleep per night. Deadly afraid of ALL pharmaceuticals, but agreed to try Horizant, in desperation. Took 600 mg at 5 P.M., with no effect. Added 300 mg at 10 P.M., and no effect on the leg motion. Did experience difficulty urinating, headaches unstable standing and walking, and dry eyes. Besides not working (for me), it is VERY expensive.Hate to think of what my doctor will try next.”

For Restless Legs Syndrome “I have had undiagnosed RLS for years and had huge horse pills Gralise to take and so many of them with a high fat meal which made me gain weight. Horizant is so much better just one pill at dinner time and I get my rest. Glad Dr explained to me that each 600mg tablet is actually equivalent to 313mg Gabapentin and not to break it but swallow whole with food.”

For Postherpetic Neuralgia “I was on Lyrica and had extreme cankles (swollen ankles) and 20 pound weight gain! I am on Horizant now and lost the weight and lost the shingles pain too. So thankful that my Dr switched me and that my ServU Pharmacy saved me money.”
