Lower dose.: You could try lowering the dose by 300 mg per day until the headache goes away. It is safe to take with ranitidine.

Gabapentin: Taking the medication at bedtime can help to minimize the side effects. Over time the side effects will decrease.

Starting the med on a low dose and gradually increasing only as tolerated helps a lot.
