Have been taking gabapentin for 3 days 300mg 3 times a day, am feeling drowsy, co-ordination has been affected, feel like i have had a lot of alcohol, sometimes speech is slurry. Also, eyes are very heavy. How long will I feel like this, will they ease when I have been taking tablets for a long time?
It's hard to say how long those side effects will last but I suggest you see your doctor and be checked. Your doctor can decide whether he/she is satisfied if the side effects you are experiencing are mild enough for you to continue taking the medicine... and perhaps will be able to tell you what time frame it usually takes for these symptoms to subside.
