When I was diagnosed with FMS, my doctor started me out on a very low dose of Gabapentin (100mg). It took about two weeks before I saw any improvement from it. I was already taking a low dose of Topamax (25mg, apparently I'm extremely sensitive to Topamax and they can't increase the dose). I do not know if that affected how long the Gabapentin took to work or if it was the low dose.
