Karen the Gabapentin is 100 mg's 3x's a day, when I picked it up yesterday I spoke to the pharmacy after looking over the "scare sheet" as Lisa calls it
The first thing he asked was if I was taking it for nerve pain, and I told him no it was given to me for my anxiety issues, and I explained to him my issues with medications and what could possibly happen on this one, do I take it 3 times a day or as needed? He did explain you have to take it 3x's a day as prescribed and you can't just quit the medication because I could have seizures(well don't that just make you want to take a dose immediately?) So as of yet I haven't taken it, I truly am scared that I will have a bizarre reaction that has never been seen before in any patient or clinical study
I thought for sure my doctor said this would help with my anxiety and help the depression, the pharmacist seemed a little puzzled that it would be given for depression, so maybe I heard my doctor wrong, maybe he just said it would help my anxiety.
