Interesting about gabapentin. I tried it 3 different times and only got up to 50 or 100 mg only at night. It made me foggy all the next day. It did help my nerve pain somewhat though but I couldn't stand it.

Melatonin was helping me fall asleep but I'm trying CBD oil so haven't been taking it. I'm very sensitive to meds Haven't found any without side effects. I wonder if it's the melatonin that made so tired the next day. I stopped Savella because it made me dizzy and shaky. Of course I'm still shaky anyway without it, but not as bad.
