I have just been prescribed gabapentin for fibromyalgia pain. I was told to start out taking 300mg 3 x's a day and then titrate up pretty significantly and quickly due to the severity of my pain and insomnia from the pain. I took my first dose this morning and I feel very sluggish and cognitively slow, etc. Is it important for me to take my mid day dose, or can I skip it and wait until the night to take more? I fear I won't be able to function if I get even more groggy from the medication and I am a mother of a two and a half year old, so I have to function. My pain is there, but much improved from the state I was in yesterday before taking the medication. I really don't know what I should do. Any knowledgable advice would be appreciated.
