195FIFI; Really I do not think you have been on it long enough to have done any good myself I would continue for at least for another week. Then if no results let us know and we can try and help you bring it back down. But really it is best to call the office and have them give you a clear list of coming off of these. best of luck to you.
I have Chronic Severe Migraines. I get them daily. I am not a health professional. Although you may already be done with this whole thing, I just made an account on here so that people don't suffer any more than they have to. Please be careful with Gabapentin. It may not seem it in the beginning but, in my experience, there will be withdrawal-type side effects when stopping or greatly decreasing your dose. I had severe nausea and dizziness. Be sure to decrease gradually. Personally, the Gabapentin didn't help my migraines. My neurologist and PCP say that I've tried every possible medical treatment and combo of medical treatments that are approved by the fda in this country. Anyway, I hope this helps someone avoid extra suffering. We certainly go through enough of that already! Good luck!
