4 days: For alcohol withdrawal, gabapentin is typically administered in a supervised setting over the span of four to five days. Exact dosing depends on severity. An example might look like: Day 1: 300mg every 6h; Day 2: 300 mg every 8h; Day 3: 300 mg every 12h; Day 4: 300mg once. Note: this is not a specific recommendation for you; it is just an example regimen a healthcare professional might prescribe.
