I take 1800 mg (TID) of gabapentin, which has successfully controlled my Trigeminal Neuralgia for 2 years. BUT, I am starting to feel the pain sensation again, and would like to know how to increase the dose. Do I just at one more pill at a time, to the point where the pain stops, or must the dosage be increase proportionally at all 3 times of the day I take the Med?
Are you taking 1800mg 3x/d or 1800mg a day divided in 3 doses? Max dose of gabapentin is 3600/24hr. If you need to increase it, you should call your dr. Why is the pain increasing after you were stable for 2 yrs? While I was working up to the dose I needed a day, I always increased the bedtime dose.
