I was diagnosed with permanent inner ear dysfunction from a viral infection I had a few years back. I have been working with a Neurologist at MGH in Boston for over a year now. I started on Topomax and could not handle those side effects. I have been on gabapentin now for approximately one month and working my way up to 900 mgs per day. I am exhausted during the day and continuously wake up during the night? Anyone else feel this way? Thanks :)
