Question
Posted by: bee | 2008/01/23

back pain

I am 200mg of Neurontin and 5mg of Trepiline for a week as I have nerve damage in my back.

Will the above help or would it be more advisable if I went for an MRI as I do not want to be on tablets forever.

Dear Bee
Give it some time – most back problems improve with conservative treatment. You would only need a MRI if they are planning to operate.
