I also take magnesium to help with the sleep problem. What dose St John's Wort should I take?
The withdrawal symptoms for me were horrible, so tapering may take longer with this med. I had ringing in ears for about a year afterward. It is possible to rupture eardrums if stopping too quickly. My vision quit changing after stopping. I regained my concentration and some energy. Gained over 30 pounds while on gabapentin, but after about a year from stopping, the weight came off without effort. Feet weren't swollen anymore. Per your question, many docs prescribe an ssri or something similar for conditions that gabapentin is also prescribed. You have to be very careful to consider St John's Wort due to its interactions with meds. There are over 800 meds that interact with it, over 200 serious interactions. Use the search box at the top for St John's Wort to read about interactions and dosages.
