Been off Gabby for 6 weeks, was on a high dose for quite a while for Osteo of knees and feet. Didn't do much for pain.
Dr took me off to quickly. Withdrawal was awful! Have good days and bad days still. Still some chest pain and stomach issues. I have heard the higher the dose the length of time you were on it the longer it takes to feel normal again. Anyone else dealing with this?
Thanks

I took Gabby for 2 years. I've been off 300 mg once a day for about 3 weeks. Tapered off slowly for 4 weeks by taking the capsules apart and putting some in empty capsules. Withdrawal insomnia and chest pains - felt awful!! So glad I'm off. Yes, it was a low dose but getting off worst thing in my life.

Did you have any stomach problems? Only things still bothering me after being off Gabby for two months is stomach problems, bloating, low appetite. Everything else is gone anxiety, nervousness, chest pain.
Just want to be normal again!

Gabapentin (pill imprint d 24) has worked for my pain for years with nothing else mixed with it. But the side effects have killed me. So I cut way down. Now I'm not sleeping. Should I go back up on the dose?

I was taking gabapentin 300mg 3x a day but today my Dr upped my dosage to 600mg 3x a day. I tried calling the Dr's office but no one answered. Is taking two 300mg gabapentin the same as taking one 600mg gabapentin?

I accidentally took three 300mg doses of gabapentin and 225 mg of lyrica - what will happen? I didn't realize I still had an 800mg gabapentin. I have heart problems, high blood pressure and diabetes. Is there something I need to do?

Re: gail (# 1)
I Take 900 mg a day for nerve pain caused by an immune problem (sever arthritis). The only side effect I have experienced is short term memory lose, which is a bummer. The doctor confirmed this would happen. I just live with it because it works for my problem. Otherwise, no side effects.

I see scary things and hear things that are not there ever since I have been on gabapentin 600 mg. I don't know what to do?

Is gabapentin a barbiturate? I have to take a blood test and cannot have them in my system if I want to get my suboxone.

I started taking Gabapentin a month ago and was scheduled for surgery, but am reluctant to move forward with it due to having too high of a white blood cell count. Could Gabapentin be the culprit?

I have been on a high dose of Gabapentin 4,000.00 mg day for muscle pain so bad I can barley walk because my muscles are so tight. Even my face muscles. I can barely talk. My eye muscles are tight inside the muscle within my eyes. I feel so tired and my toes feel like they're cringing. I can't even bend down but it feels like all of them are having charlie horses in every one of them constantly 24/7 and I've been on this drug for 5 years but I started on a lower dose. Do you think it's caused from the Gabapentin? Will this all go away if I wean down?

Re: Shirley (# 31)

I have taken them when I lowered my regular dose, but had to return to my regular dose of 900mg a day. The side effects are the same as higher doses based on your particular tolerance.

I’m wondering if anyone else has suffered stomach pain as a side effect of gabapentin? I’ve been on it for more than a month and a half. I have terrible constipation as well.

I'm going to try Gabapentin (Neurontin) for a month. Are the eventual side effects just temporary or can they be permanent? How common is it that Gabapentin doesn't help?
