Does anyone here have any idea what the appropriate protocol is on tapering down off gabapentin? My best friend has been in gabapentin 600 mgs not sure how many, but a new doctor she has now us wanting to taper her off. What's everyone's thoughts on going from 600 mys everyday and right down to 100 mgs? As I mentioned, she's taken this medication for over 11 yrs and in this last month of her drop in dosage , she's having a rough time. She has a toddler to care for and I know from experience even the mental issues it causes. Also, if there is any ideas how I can help my friend figure out a plan. She has went from This hopeful positive strong headed person.. down to a person that's isolating and crying and doesn't know how she feels. She isn't hopeful about the future. She isn't suicidal or anything.. she's just very off and if someone has any advice what I could do to help her, I feel as if This taper plan was not the right dosage to drop to that quickly. Plz help anyone who has advice!
