Is 900 mg daily alot to take in a day?
The dosage of Neurontin (gabapentin) that your healthcare provider recommends will vary depending on a number of factors, including:
Your age and weight; the medical condition being treated; other medications you may be taking & other medical conditions you may have.
The recommended starting dosage of Neurontin for controlling partial seizures in adults and adolescents over 12 years old is Neurontin 300 mg three times daily. If necessary, your healthcare provider may increase your dose, up to a maximum of 800 mg three times daily, until your seizures are under control.
Neurontin will not work if you stop taking it. The healthcare provider could tell you how long it would take for the medication to preform, hope this information is of help to you? Best of luck
Depends on what you are taking it for. 900mg is a pretty good dose for alot of things. It usually takes about a month to get the full effects from it sometimes, so you will have to be patient for now. Neurontin doses can go even higher if needed. It may sound like alot but it is usually a pretty safe drug. Hope this is of help to you in easing your mind.
I copied this info for you, hope it helps.
"Treatment typically starts with a single 300-milligram dose on the first day, two 300-milligram doses on the second day, and three 300-milligram doses on the third day. If necessary, the doctor may increase the daily total to as much as 1,800 milligrams, divided into three doses., Whether you are taking Neurontin for epilepsy or pain, the doctor will lower the dose if you have poor kidney function. Also, if Neurontin is discontinued or another drug is added to therapy, your doctor will do this gradually, over a 1-week period."
