I've been on gabapentin at an increasing dosage for 2yrs. At 3200mg/day for nerve pain. Stopped cold turkey. Would this cause nausea? Other affects?

Dosing of Gabapentin for epic Migraines, tinnitus, nerve pain. Is 1500mg or above a reasonable dosage? I don't want to press my doc, but 900mg is fine, and 1200mg is a bit better, but still not efficaceous enough. I've read that for nerve pain people g

The maximum recommended dose is 3600mg per day, so 1500mg is well within a safe range. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›

Just prescribed elavil for IBS and cronic ruq nerve pain. It is to strong even at lowest dose. Can i cut it in half? Only been taking 3 days at bed.
Elavil: Please call your doctor about your difficulties with elavil, since you haven't shared how much you're taking. The lowest dose made is 10mg, and i don't know any that are scored (making them easier to cut in half) anyway. You may end up with a crumbled pill. Your doctor will want to understand what you mean by "too strong, " so s/he can adjust or change. Another option might be low-dose sinequan. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
