Hi everyone. So I had a really good appointment with a consultant that I hadn't seen before on Thursday. For a while I've been taking 300mg of gabapentin at night, and she wants me to gradually increase it so I am eventually taking 600mg 3x per day in the hope that it will help my pain and reduce my intake of Tramadol. Today was the first day that I took 300mg in the morning, and I'm supposed to take my usual 300mg tonight. After taking it, I began to feel drowsy and a few hours later I felt so drunk! I couldn't really function to be honest! I had to concentrate really hard to make scrambled eggs! Is this normal for gabapentin, and should it wear off soon? I really don't want to feel like this everyday. It's frustrating and I feel like I am taking one step forwards and two steps back.
I'm back to normal now, but feeling sleepy, just as if I had got drunk in the middle of the day and sobered up but felt kind of spaced out/hungover.
