What are the best times to take gabapentin if prescribed 3x's daily?

Hi Kj,
Hospitals usually give meds written for 3 x a day as 9am - 1pm - 5pm.
However, at home you have more flexibility.
I would consider the time you get up and the time you go to sleep.
Ex ... 8am & 12am = 16 hours.
Find the time somewhere in the middle. You want the medication to be given every 8 hours while awake.
A.m. dose 8am
Mid day dose is 4pm.
HS dose is 12am
Most important is to keep the same time everyday.
I hope this helps.

Hi just curious are you still taking Gabapentin? How much and how often?

I was prescribed it for mood swings a few months ago.

I hope your well...

I take one tablet in am and two pm. Why? I get up 5:30 am and take my pm 6:00. I tried to remember the middle does but kept forgetting. So I had to do what works for me. You have to find out what works for you.
