I was prescribed to start taking Gabepentin at the end of January as I had increased pain in my legs to the point I wasn't sleeping even though I was already taking other drugs to help. Anyway, to cut a long story short, the side effects of this drug got so bad that by the beginning of last week I saw my GP to stop taking it. I knew you couldn't just stop so sought her advice which I followed until Friday evening when I had to take to my bed with feeling extremely sick and sweating profusely. My partner contact NHS111 on Saturday morning who said I was suffering from withdrawal and gave me a prescription to reduce the drug over 3 weeks. It seems to be working as I am feeling much better. My question is has anyone else been on/is on this drug and how have they got on?
