Stevemary; Don't really know what you mean by a bizarre reaction many things can happen when we first start a medication, In most case's it goes away with continued use. This is why they start you out on a low dose and up it little by little to get the effect you need. You should check with your doctor if you only took the one and let them know what happened and let the doctor tell you what to do, It works great for many people once you get through the beginning stage's of this medication.

I have just started taking gabapentin 300 mg. for one month now not doing much for my nerve pain but Doc told me this is just a starting dose. Only side effect I have noticed is my stools are loose. Just got a refill for next month and up dosage to 600 mg. will see what that does. Hopefully will help pain and ability to get some sleep.
Any feed back would be appreciated.
Works good for me for nerve pain. I take 600 mg three times a day. And it may sill increase . During the day all is ok. But I DO have WILD dreams , like riding a mouse to Walmart to go shopping. Stuff like that.
I take 100 mg Doxepin just to get 3 to 4 hours of sleep.
Have a lot of pain always.
