Hi all, i started gabapentin 11th july for bilateral sciatica. I am also taking naproxen ,lansoperazole and occasional cocodamol.I have had a bad back and sciatica since may . I took gaba 100 mg twice a day then increased 6th July to 3 time a day 100 mg. On the 9th aug i increased to 200 mg 3 x daily. My pain continued to increase i rang my Gp who stated to increase to 300 mg 3 x a day which , i did increase 28th august. So today is 3rd Sept and my pain is increasing again, i am not going to increase anymore as i am feeling brain fog all the time and feel very drugged. I drive for a living and could not drive on a larger dose. Questions why is my pain increasing especially in my calfs. What reducing regime should i do having been on this drug 53 days?
