I am new to this forum. I have been taking 600 mg of gabapentin 2 x daily I also take 75 mcg of Synthroid and 20 mg of lisinopril. I feel like an idiot half the time can't remember anything. I have tried to stop taking gabapentin but after 2nd day not taking just 1 300 mg capsule I am miserable sweat the cold tired and can't sleep at night. Hate the feeling. Any suggestions or comments

I had to go off of it 100 mg at a time. I just waited for the withdrawal symptoms to decrease, then would go down another step. It is tough but doable.

Hi Thyroid

Also new to this form also taking gabapentin taking 400mg x3 daily add 1 per week until at 400mgx6 daily on medication guide avoid aluminum/magnesium/antacids within 2 hours. Also stopping abruptly may increase seizure risk I would talk with your doctor. Did these meds help you at all also you have any side effect when on 1200 mg per day. One thing I found to help me sleep better is fast dissolving Melatonin 5mg mint flavour take 2 of these before bed just put them on your tongue let them dissolve don't need water can find at any drug store mine are life brand 120 tabs about $10.00. Hope maybe will help you get even a little more rest let me know if you try these how it worked good luck wish you well.
