I've been prescribed Gabapentin 300mg for my chronic pain. I started a couple of weeks ago on one 300mg tablet x3 a day. My GP now has asked me to titrate up to 2x 300mg in the morning and at night. S
I told her about the really bad drowsiness I'm getting , she said that that was very common and it can take a while for the side effects to pass. Now I'm in the higher dose at night, I'm like a zombie! I haven't even started taking the extra tablet in the morning yet as I'm so zonked out. I feel like I've got really bad flu and also got very jerky hands?
My question is......how long does it take for the side effects to wear off? As I told the GP, she said that I should 'power through' until it gets to a therapeutic level.
I'm really interested in anyone else has had the same thing and can give me some advice?
Thanks a lot
