Hi Alicia,

Were you prescribed this medication or was it someone else's? I personally don't think you should have anything to worry about as far as side effects go if you only took this one dose. Gabapentin has a half life of 5 to 7 hours. So, for example, if you took 200 mg of gabapentin Monday at 4 PM, 100 mg would still be in your system at approx. 9 to 11 PM. Generally, it can take anywhere from 5-7 half-lifes before the drug is completely out of your system (but you should stop feeling its effects before then).

Gabapentin was originally developed for the treatment of epilepsy, and is currently widely used to relieve neuropathic pain.

Gabapentin's most common side effects in adult patients include dizziness, drowsiness, and peripheral edema (swelling of extremities); these mainly occur at higher doses, in the elderly.

For more information about this drug, please refer to the link below...

If you have any more questions or concerns, please post back and I will be happy to help you.

I have taken i dose ofGabapentin at 12Pm last night since my back pain was bad. It makes me so tired and drowsey. My Dr. gave ma a prescription for 100mg 3 x a day as needed. Can I just take 100mg at 10 in the evening and if that works just stay on it one time a day??

I have been diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetis. I was put on Invoketet, and was doing fine. Then I started getting Neuropathy which has continued to get worse each day. Yesterday and today it brought me to tears (which is very unusual for me). I have my Drs. home phone and finally called him this evening and he phone in Gabapentin 200 mg., but our pharmacy is already closed, so will pick it up tomorrow. My questions are, what are the side effects, and does that seem like a high dosage?

I question the same. I'm a lightweight and just started 100mg yesterday around 4pm. Fell asleep around 9pm adn woke up at midnight and took another 100mg abt 2pm woke up 1x, that I can remember and fell back to sleep and slept through to 2pm the next day. My day was shot. I missed my appt. I only needed it to reduce my pain level at night so I can sleep and I too want to know if it is safe to take only 100mg 1x per day before I go to bed at night. The side effects with headache, feeling tire, dizziness are a nuisance. Not what I need. I need to function daily, this isn't helping. And one other question: I read that Gabapentin has the ingredient titanium dioxide. If this is true, then, why would I want to put this in my body? This is info from a website:

Please help. I havebeen prescribed gabapentin..100 mg ,2xdaily. I took my first does @ 6pm and the second @6 am. I hane done nothing but sleep. Did not take my next does,due to the fact I am falling asleep at the drop of a hat. Planning on taking 1 dose tonight. Is this a normal reaction to this medication. I was prescribed this medication because I have nerve damge due to having multiple Tarlov Cysts. Any advice would be a blessing. It does help with the nerve pIn, how ever I cannot afford to sleep my life away. Thanks for any help you can give.
