Scratching and more scratching. I am guessing this is linked to rainy weather -- that is always the correlation now to extra scratching. I've upped his Neurontin to 50mg three times daily and when he gets like this, to 100mg 3x daily. It seems to have settled a bit since the second 100mg dose. There are chunks of black hair all over the house from him scratching out tufts from his ears, which were so beautiful only 3 months ago. Now they are really depleted.
It's disappointing to me that he had over a month of not scratching when he first went on Neurontin but it very quickly seems not to have given the same level of relief -- though I can definitely see the difference between when he doesn't have it, and when he does.
It's hard to watch them when they have bad days with SM.
