Gabapentin: used for: epileptic seizures, postherpetic neuralgia, and restless legs syndrome. Not everyone gets withdrawal symptoms on sudden discontinuation (gradual is best). Symptoms of gabapentin withdrawal: anxiety, nausea, sweating, difficulty sleeping, pain. Withdrawal symptoms may begin w/in 12 hrs after the last dose and may last up to a week. Best to work with your prescriber. Best regards for good health.
