- gabapentin, surgery
Surgical check-in is 1:00 P.M. PST. I wasn't allowed to eat after midnight. I usually take my first dose (out of 3) at 5:00 but I turned off the alarm and went back to sleep. I took my first dose at 8:00. Will taking Gab and not eating increase the drowsiness side effect?
Hi Nikki ..I take Lyrica ... same as Gab..I always take my morning dose in an empty stomach ..I don't experience drowsiness at all. I hope this helps! I wish you well. I hope your surgery and recovery goes well.
Good luck- you should be fine. Before they sedate you, they ask about meds-what you took- So be good- take care of yourself. Good luck
