Has this happened to anyone else? Should I go back on it and taper more slowly?
Neurontin is a prescription medication used for treating certain types of epileptic seizures and nerve pain. Stopping Neurontin is not recommended without the docs approval. Stopping the drug quickly is also not recommended. Although Neurontin is not addicting and is not likely to be abused, stopping it too quickly can cause problems. Usually, the doc would recommend stopping Neurontin slowly, over a period of at least one week.
In most cases, the doc will suggest that you wean off the medication slowly (over at least one week) to avoid seizures or other Neurontin withdrawal symptoms.
Please talk to your doc for the headaches that you have if they become too bothersome, would recommend to seek medical advice, please be well, take care & be safe.
