I was put on Gabapentin 100mg x 2, 3x daily not quite 2 weeks ago. For the first day I had 100mg at lunch and then 100mg in the evening. The following day, my dose was doubled to 200mg 3x a day. I was on this dose in hospital for 2 days before I was sent home. When I came home I dropped down to 100mg 3x a day because I didn’t like the way they made me feel and it wasn’t doing a whole lot for the pain anyway. That was 8 days ago. Since then I’ve decreased to 100mg twice a day and the last 2 or 3 days I’ve only had 100mg at bedtime.
Do you think I need to taper off more before stopping?
At the moment I’m also on augmentin duo forte and since last night after each antibiotic dose I’ve been extremely nauseous and then I’ve had frequent bowel movements today. I’ve attributed those symptoms to the antibiotics because I know it can cause that. But after reading some of the forums it has me worried that it’s the Gabapentin. I’m about to go to bed and I haven’t taken any today at all. But I planned not to take the antibiotics tomorrow to see if that made a difference to my nausea and stomach upset.
