If you forgot to take it in the morning, you can take it whenever you realize you forgot to take it. Then take the next one at your next scheduled time. The only side effect at these doses is slight sedation. ...Read more

Yes, separately: My main concern is the possibility that the magnesium that is an ingredient in the airborne could reduce the availability of the gabapentin. Some sources talk of twenty percent reduction, I am not sure if that would translate into anything that would be noticeable to you. You would do best to space it out and take the Gabapentin at a completely different time 2 hours or more apart. Stay safe! ...Read more
