I have recently changed from Mirapexine to Gabapentine which I supplement with a 3mg neupro patch. At first the specialist that I saw prescribed 100mg tablets three times a day but this was clearly not enough and I had a terrible time, made worse by the fact that I was on holiday in South Africa. Just before I left the UK I persuaded the doctor to increase the Gabapentine to 200mg and then I saw another doctor in SA. That meeting proved very interesting for several reasons but to cut a long storey short she agreed to prescribe additional Gabapentine such that I now tale 300mg three times a day. Because I was still suffering badly from lack of sleep and having to wander around all evening I decided to cut 3mg patches in half and apply these with a whole patch.. Since then I have enjoyed much more sleep and have even slept through the night - I even slept on the plane home which is a first for me. Any comments on the new formulation - ie 300mg Gabapentine three times a day together with four and a half mg Neupro patches?
