Thanks for your reply! I know I stuff my posts full of info and questions, so they must be pretty confusing to read.
I have tried Lyrica a few times, since I know it should be more potent. But for some reason, it just doesn't seem to have as obvious an effect as Gabapentin on Sammy, even at 50mg x 2 per day. I've wondered sometimes whether I should have tested it for longer (the most I've given it is a couple of weeks). I would prefer to use Lyrica, since Gabapentin is actually more expensive at the doses I'm using.
Sammy started Vetmedin yesterday. Surprisingly today his breathing seems worse. He's panting a lot and restless. Is there any way this could be part of an adjustment period to the new medication? I'm starting to really worry now... He's on 20mg Furosemide, Fortekor 2.5mg x2, and now Vetmedin 2.5mg x 2. We were out for a walk a couple of hours ago, so he might still be recovering from that.
