Gabapentin is making me so sleepy and givin me a dopey feeling, and a very very dry mouth. ive only been on this for 2 weeks and i take 1800mgs a day, ive got femeral palsy and bad aches in my arms. How long should i expect to feel these effects?
I am surpirsed you are at the dose you are in just two weeks. Because of the side effects you are having, most doctors start a person at 300mg, & work up to a larger dose, not all at once. It gives your body time to adjust to the effects. You might want to talk to your doctor about lowering the dose for a bit, & them upping it as you get used to it. Just my thoughts... Mary
