Hello. I started taking gabapentin yesterday with one 300 mg capsule at bedtime. I got my first full nights sleep in 10 days. I have a pinched nerve a L5 on my left side. Two questions. I was very tired all day and have very little energy. How long does it take for the sleepiness to lessen? In four days I start taking two per day. And how long does it take for the pain to be controlled? I'm a little bit worried about progressing to two and then three capsules per day. Thanks for the help. JD
