what side effects are there if you come off them to quickley ihave been on 900mg a day 4 over a year for my fibromyalgia pain i now have obstructive sleep apnea and need to stop gabapentin
elicia jade: I was on Neurontin for 6 years and I could not afford them anymore. I went cold turkey and it sucked. I was on 2000 mg a day and I went through withdrawl affects. Of course not as bad as if you were getting off a narcotic, but it was hard. I suggest that your Dr. gradually get you off of them. Good Luck
Doctor advised me to never come off of Gabapentin without telling him. He said I could have major seizures.
Just because you have apena you need to come off of Gabapentin? This is not true. I have apena and am on this medication. I am being treated by the same doctor for the apena and for the loss of discs in my neck for which I am taking Gabapentin.
