Zim Says:

I take 30 mgs of baclofen per day and was recently prescribed gabapentin 300mgs 3 x daily. The other day after taking my last dose of gabapentin, I became extremely lethargic and went to sleep. I awoke to my body slamming on the floor as I had rolled out of bed. This has never happened before. Is it the combination of the two meds that caused this?

Hello, Zim! How are you?

The lethargy may be due to the combination of the two.

However, I've not heard reports of falling out of bed. It could've been due to very vivid dreaming, which the Gabapentin can sometimes cause.

Other side effects, as listed by the FDA, may possibly include nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, mood swings and weight changes.

Has it happened, again, or just that once?

I would read up in gabapentin withdrawal symptoms. That's a pretty high doses and if you discontinued it abruptly withdrawal is likely. Much info online about gabapentin and it's withdrawal symptoms. I would do some research. You may be surprised on what you find. I was when I was on it and researched it.

Hi - the extreme lethargy might be the baclofen. I had to stop taking it as I was falling asleep very unexpectedly - like while driving! Beware the baclofen!

I would say it is the baclophen. I have COPD and this caused such drowsiness and shortness of breath that I had to use portable oxygen device.
