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,
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.
