I took a 600mg gabapentin lastnight before I went to bed and was up off and on all night. Has any one noticed if it affects sleep?
i take 900 mg in the morning and 900 mg at bedtime... and i have insomnia. i never get more than 3 hours a night for 3-4 nights ; then i sleep 8-10 hours for one night and back to 3 hours a night for 3-4 days.
but it really really helps my nerve pain... couldn't function w/out it. would rather have the crappy sleep schedule than the pain at this point.
When I first started the med. @ 200 mgs. @ bedtime I slept very well. It's been almost 5 months and now I'm having like a rebound what once was a restful 6 hrs. of sleep has become 2 hrs. MAX and can't sit still. Horrible feeling plus all the clumsiness that comes w/o much sleep. I'm NO delight to be around. Desperate :(
