Is it safe for me to take two capsules of gabapentin 300mg together or should I only take one in morning+1 at night, i forgot 2 take it in morning?
Yes: Generally Gabapentin is a short-acting medication, so the morning dose won't help very much with evening symptoms. 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
Gabapentin SEs: Sedation is a common side effect of gabapentin. Each person will be somewhat different in their sensitivity to this SE -- but it does occur. Some patients may adjust to the medication dose, and find sedation less problematic with time. Or perhaps taking most of the dose at bed would help. Contact your prescribing MD to arrive at the best solution for your particular case & be well! :) ...Read more

Can Gabapentin 300mg capsule be opened and taken with pudding? It is not extended release. Is it safe?
Gabapentin capsules: Gabapentin caps can generally be opened and mixed with jam, honey, or apple sauce without significant change in effect from swallowing the capsule whole. A single dose should be mixed and then swallowed directly, not mixed in advance. if you're considering changes to your med regimen, you should always discuss with your prescribing doc first -- so give him/her a buzz & be well :) ...Read more
Been on gabapentin 300mg once a day for the last three weeks. Having side effects and want to stop it. Have read it can have bad withdrawal side effects, is this true? How do I taper off of it
Gabapentin (300mg. 3x day) for nuropathic pain works great but is it OK to use miralax daily for the constipation it causes?
Taking gabapentin 300mg three times a day for meralgia paresthetica. Started six days ago. No relief. How long before this stuff kicks in?
Are we there yet?: You're pretty close to when you should be feeling something with that particular dose. I tend to titrate people rather slowly (1 pill escalate weekly) so it depends how your doctor told you to ramp this medication up but if you've been going 3x/day right from the get go then, maybe a few more days to a week at best. If you're no better then, either the dose is too low or medication inadequate. ...Read more
