Hello outsider34. You might ask your doctor to make an adjustment to your dose. That often does help in regards to Gabapentin. Regards pledge

Sorry to hear you're not having luck w/ gaba. I take it specificly for fibro but feel like it helps w/ my depression & energy level ... I take 2400mg a day my rheumatologist just upped my dose so as suggested above talk to your prescribing doc & see if they think you need an increase
Good luck~~

Hi outsider,

Sometimes the side effects go away after a few weeks. Try for awhile but if your bothered by it you might need to ask for something else..
