Hey there, sorry you've run out of meds. These damn laws hurt the people who need medicine the most. If you have been on Gabapentin regularly for at least the last couple of months then you will not doubt feel some withdrawal symptoms going 7-10 days without anything. I can't really tell you how bad it will be as everyone is different but you can expect sporadic pain, anxiety, restlessness, nausea, sweating, etc... The usual yuckness from withdrawals of any drug. Try researching some at home remedies to help ease the symptoms or call your doctor and explain your situation. While he may not be able to give you another prescription right away, he could have some samples to hold you over or at the very least help you with your withdrawal symptoms. Good luck! --J, CPhT
