I have heard of people on that and it works...
I take a vitamin E and a Donnatal before bed and they help me.
I hope they aren't too bad Susan!

Susan - I started taking gabapentin (Neurontin) joint pain a year ago and didn't realized till I didn't take it for a few days that it had decreased my night sweats substantially - I would be soaked at night - now I get hot, the covers are on and off,  but I am not soaked -  Before the gabapentin, one morning DH commented that he didn't sweat that much except during a hard workout.  I started on 300mg and slowly increased to 1800mg to help the joint pain.  Hope it works for you.  Karen
