Hi I was prescribed 100mg Gabapentin 3 X day - which is a low dose compared to some on here. It was for neuropathic pain which I no longer have. Whether it has gone completely or whether it might come back if I quit the gabapentin, I don't know but I want to try. The thing is I feel my breathing is being affected - ie blocked nose and tight chest (both listed as possible side effects). This is unfortunate as I am also being treated for a lung condition. I was putting these symptoms down to the lung condition per se but these things only started after starting Gabapentin. I have only been on it for 3 weeks so wondered if I could safely taper on my own. Not sure if it comes in strengths less than 100mg or if I can split a tablet. Otherwise the only way I can see of tapering would be to start by reducing the dose to 2x day. Just wondered if anyone had any experience of coming off a low dose.
