Lorraine; if you're having problems with it, Really it would not hurt you just to stop it if you have only taken 3 in the last 3 days. For this medication to really work you have to try it over a longer period of time and a higher dose little by little.But if you think you would rather stop for whatever reason you well be fine. best of luck to you Lorraine. just not fun hope you get to feeling better soon.
I'm very sensitive when coming off certain medications (Gabapentin definitely has been one of them) and I had to more slowly stop even some short-term medications. Based on majority of patients you likely should be ok stopping, but you could try 2 then 1 then none if concerned or you feel awful from stopping cold-turkey.
Best wishes coming off the medicine and finding a better solution!
