You need to discuss this with your doctor.

You should consult ur doc. Now, having said that, I will share my experience regarding the lowering of my daily intake of Neurontin. As I was in a car accident, I injured the nerves in my back. I was at 3500mg/day for 2-3 years. When my body appeared to be at a certain point of healing, which allowed me to operate at a certain activity level without nerve pain, I reduced my daily intake by 300mg. I waited and watched for my body's response. If no pain, I stayed at this level for at least a month. If pain returned, I went back up. Eventually, I made it down from 3500mg to 300mg/day (100mg taken three times a day). I then dropped 100mg/day staying there for at least a month. Same routine for dropping the next 100mg/day, and then the final 100mg/day. I did not consult with my doctor regarding the reduction. I listened to my body as the saying goes. However, I felt pretty confident in dropping off 300mg/day and holding it at the lower level for a month, because in the beginning that was how I reached 3500mg/day. The first month was 300mg/day. The second month was 600mg/day, and so forth.
