Usually quick: Gabapentin is one of the least likely drugs to have withdrawal symptoms, and if you do have withdrawal, it is usually over very quickly. If you went from 600mg/day to zero, you could go down to 300mg/day for a couple of days and then stop, or even go smaller to 100mg/day for a couple of days. This downward titration would help with withdrawal.
