how many hours do you wait between doses of gabapentin I am to take 600mg 2 tmes a day,last night I too a pill at 6 oclock but gabapentin did not work till 4 hours later
Here's a quote I found "It is important to take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is less than 4 hours until your next scheduled dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice." Hope this is helpful. I've just started the lowest dose of Mirapex .125mg and it works great for my severe RLS.
Great question for your Dr or even the pharmacist. For what it's worth, after I developed RLS after a year long near death battle from extreme withdrawal I found Tramadol to help. Only at night and a relatively low dose, I should mention I do not like this med in general, but it did help me get some relief from my RLS.
