View Full Version : A fairly good checkup

Last Thursday I took Spencer to his neurologist for his three month checkup. He's still taking 200mg of gabapentin twice a day and 100mg of cimetidine three times a day. Dr. McDonnell feels (and me too!) Spencer has improved in his itching and scratching on the medicine and there has been no progression of his clinical signs. He did notice a very subtle right head tilt and right sided weakness. He said we're good for another six months and that I can add a mid-day dose of 100mg of gabapentin if I feel his scratching is getting bad.

Good to hear he's doing okay Whitney! He's such a sweetheart.

Though I am sure you would love for Spencer to get a 100% clean bill of health, it is good that his symptoms are relatively stable. Still... it must all be very worrying. :hug:

Oh that's really good news - I often think of Spencer and wonder how he is doing.

It's interesting that your Neuro is happy for him to stay on this dose of Cimetidine...this is the highest dose we've heard of being used...but it does seem to be helping so that's great.
