Today I'm in full Neurontin (gabapentin) withdrawal. If anyone has had to go through this maybe you will have some suggestions.
After the muscle spasms and not being able to breathe (apnea) that scared my husband, I quit cold turkey Sunday. Today I just barely made it out of bed, but I knew I had diazepam in the kitchen. (Diazepam, aka Valium, hits the same receptors, and it's supposed to help with withdrawal.) Two hours later I'm still shaking and breath-holding with pain. I'll try a little more diazepam (only took 1/2mg).
I'm hoping to find some of Nana's suggestions for herbs locally, but right now I can just barely sit here for a few minutes typing. Quitting cold turkey is not fun, but I like breathing.
The pain doc simply didn't believe my symptoms were from the Neurontin, although they're listed on reputable websites. So there was no use calling him!
