What's the highest does of gapapintin you can take and does it help with trigeminal neuralgia ?

Lots: The biggest dose I have seen anyone tolerate was 4800 mg/day. I wouldn't recommend that dose myself but the person had worked himself up to that level. Gabapentin and Pregabalin are both helpful for trigeminal neuralgia.Pregabalin has an effect after a week.
