    Hi Emma,I also started on gabapentin,I'm on 300mg X3 daily and I'm also on mirtazipine 30mg,I have experienced very bad confusion,I have also taken a few fits,whether this is caused by medication I don't know,bit if you start getting side effects that you don't like,then go to your doctors ASAP.

      Thankyou so much for your reply!!- i can see you r on a bit higher doses of the meds than myself,but your advice has been very helpful. Had NO convulsions or fits EVER before so would definately contact my gp if this occurs. I have only just started gab so am willing 2 give it a shot n see how it goes- feel my anxiety levels have reduced after 2 days on it though so fingers toes and everything else crossed!!!

      I hope ur symptoms and side effects subside !

    Hi Emma

    This combination is safe. Gab dose is very low and others are low. This combo will probably help with sleep. Side effects may include some degree of tiredness. Take mirtazipine in evening to reduce side effects.
