    Default Gabapentin

    A GP prescribed gabapentin for me 2wks ago, 100mg 3 times a day, rising to 300mg 3 times a day. I found myself becoming very weepy after fifth day so I reduced gradually until 2 days ago. I'm still feeling very weepy. How long will this possibly last? Thanks

    Welcome,

    I've taken Gaba on and off for years for nerve pain associated with back issues. I was usually prescribed 100mg 3x a day. In January of this year, one month before my surgery, the surgeon told me to up my dose to 300mg 3x a day and I did. I still have some nerve pain as things heal and when I went for my first post-op visit, he told me I could take up to 600 mg before bed if I needed it. I have never had any side effects but as with anything, I'm sure there are some. I am an opiate addict in recovery so I'm prone to abuse most anything if the potential is there. I've never felt the desire to take more than I need to of Gaba and even after being on it for years, was able to leave it be without any symptoms.

    I did see that mood swings is a possible side effect so maybe you should call you doctor and he/she can give you something different. I don't think you will have any issues just stopping it most especially after only a week.

    Good luck!

    Peace,

    Cat
