I'm not sure, anjeegyrl. I would be worried about seizures if you don't taper off. i take lyrica which is not as strong and my doc warned me about siezures and fever. Can you get with your doc and talk about tapering off?
Best of luck... i know it has some nasty side effects.

Yes, there can be. It is best to taper off the neurontin over a couple weeks time so to avoid any adverse symptoms of stopping the medication.
The prescribing literature points out the following:
If Neurontin dose is reduced, discontinued or substituted with an alternative medication, this should be done gradually over a minimum of 1 week (a longer period may be needed at the discretion of the prescriber).
Best to discuss with the doctor the avenue to take,

Nothing has helped me for over 30 years now. My doc just prescribed neurontin for the pain. I'm wondering if anyone tried this.
