I have been weaning myself (dr knows) of of gabapentin. i started with 4 for 2 weeks went doen to 3 for 2 weeks than down to two. now im trying only to take one. im wondering what the side effects might be. im feeling depressed, have some itching. i was first diagnosed with rls and then shingles. im so tired of taking so much medicine and am very curious if weaning off gabapentin is a good idea. i have no one to ask.
