How long do gabapentin side effects take to wear off?
GP has prescribed me gabapentin for fibro pain. I've started on the smallest dose, 100mg once a day, working up to 3 times a day before we review and decide if I need more. I started taking the one 100mg at bedtime a week ago. Despite it being a tiny dose, it's making me like a total zombie! I thought yesterday that it was starting to wear off, but today I've been totally wiped out, though maybe I just did too much yesterday because I was feeling better (I didn't think at the time that I overdid it!). Now I'm scared to make the first increase to add a morning dose, because I think I'll need to sleep all day! The kids break up for Easter on Friday, so I don't have the option of sleeping all day, or even a bit of it! Just wondering what other people's experiences are, so that I have inspiration to hang on in there with this drug!
