Hi guys so I've written before under a different group about my recent spine op and grief of losing my Mum etc and how awful I've been feeling this year . But what I'd like to ask you all is has anyone suffered so badly coming off gabapentin? I've been on it for 2 years last 6 months on 3600 mg a day!! But after my spine surgery back in April I was still in a great deal of pain so a month ago my doctor decided I need to change my nerve pain tablet So here goes I started weening a month ago from 3600 to this week where I'm now on nothing!! Until Thursday when I see my doc who wants to start me on pregabalin? Thing is the last two weeks I'm uncontrollably crying can't get out of bed have lost all interest in eating reading talking and just been here and alive I have never ever felt this low and depressed in my life I don't know what to do !! I have a history of depression but how I feel now is nothing I've ever felt before!! I presume it's withdrawal I also take morphine sulphate and codeine phosphate whic I still take as normal! I don't know if I need anti depressants or should take pregabalin. Help!!!! I still have cervical spinal stenosis even after the op and will need further ops to sort this out. I'm at my wits end I have NOONE TO TALK TO, since my mum passed away 18 months ago I've become isolated and a social recluse. Anyone had gabapentin withdrawal????
