Re: Gabapentin Stop and Start up again later effective?

Got a message from my Dr at Stanford and he said the receptors could be reset if I stop and restart the Gabapentin. Of course, i would have to deal with the leg twitching problems during that time. May try it and just just a half tablet of my Mirapex to mitigate any augmentation or side effects.

Re: Gabapenten used thru the night

Hi Bry;

I had read somewhere that Gabapentin is only effective up to a dose of 900 MG. After that, added dosage has no effect of RLS.

Gabapenten used thru the night

I have started using the gabapenten a little thru the night to get a good nights sleep rather than taking the 600MG one time before bed. Has anyone else tried this? It seems to work good for me. Take 300MG before bed, then 100 about midnight or 1 am then 200 about 3 AM . The later also helps me take...

Re: Gabapentin

If this is taken each day does it require higher dosage with time or does it lose its effectiveness? If so, any particulars are appreciated.
