In brief: 1200 mg 3-4x/day

Gabapentin is a peculiar medication.
The absorption is not linear with the dosage. With each increase, you absorb less of the increase. 600 mg 8x/day is more than 1200 mg 4x/day i your body! this effect plateaus around 1200 mg per dose. However, that said, dosage limits are often reached symptomatically; ie, lethargy, sedation, tremor, trouble walking. Balance/coordination problems.
