Was this amt prescribed? Do you normally take a lower dose? I think you should phone your doctor if this dose was accidental.
I would think it would make you sleepy. I take 1500 mgs per DAY, but I break it up in lower doses of 300 mgs five times per day to keep me from being drowsy.
If this amount is prescribed, I would ask the dr if you can break up the dose. OR is this the new time-released gabapentin, in which case the dose is not all at once. I think you need more information.
