Be careful, I had a very bad reaction to it. Ended up in the ER twice with severe blood pressure spikes. I had blood pressure spikes previously but the Gabapentin added chest pain/heaviness on my chest, short labored breathing, and tingling sensations in head and arms to my previous BP issues. It also delayed response of my BP meds to bring my pressure down. I was on low dose, only 100mg 3 times a day. Be careful.
