You have seizures if you suddenly stop taking Neurontin. I'm prone to seizures and didn't have any problems. I took massive doses several times. I have nerve damage that causes a type of Dystrophy. I had trauma to my nerve area and the severe pain came back. I was able to get over it and stop taking neurontin. I sort of felt like I was floating whenever I upped the dose, and I began lose feeling in my finger tips, so I backed off slowly. Neurontin slows down neural synapses, when you go off neurontin, the neural synapses speeds up. The synapses can get out of control and and cause Gran Mal seizures. If it's for pain- I recommend it. free discount card
