how long (months/years) is it safe to take gabapentin 600 mg?

Necessary vs safe: This is not an easy (safe) drug to take for any time and it may require more and more to be effective - BUT it may be necessary. Discuss this in depth w/ your Dr and keep them closely informed of how you are doing. Always seek to evaluate as many non-drug treatments as possible. Best!
