I tried the Neurontin route for about one. Started at 300 mg a day, then 300 mg three times a day, then 600 mg three times and finished at 1200 mg three times a day. Seemed to reduce severity but not frequency. I am 34 and chronic for about six years. I had a one week vacation from this monster after taking so much prednisone it's scary to think (did this on and off for a year buying it in Mexico) gained 60 pounds most of it in my face. I hope neurontin worked. Only side affects I noticed were constipation (only at first) and a spacy feeling each time I increased my dosage but this also went away in a couple of days.

Good luck

Hope this is a short spell and you get six more years.
