Neurontin (gabapentin) Taper : Your profile indicates you take cellcep. If using cellcelpt for renal or liver xplant and there is a baseline functional organ compromise, the taper would have to be individualized for you by your doctor. In the absence of seizure disorder, lowered seizure threshold or predisposition to seizure, this can be tapered over a week, and possibly 2-3 weeks in other scenarios.
