gabapentin augmentation ?

Post by Sojourner »

First off, I'd like to apologize to the mods and members if I have missed this topic somewhere along the line. I tried a search but I'm afraid I may not have done a good job navigating the search feature. In any event, I'm just wondering if it is possbible to augment with gabapentin?

No, you searched well, I think. There are no incidents of it, to our knowledge.

not augmentation, but I think it's quite possible that some of us have gotten withdrawal that consists of worsened symptoms, after stopping gabapentin and other anti-convulsants.

I never experienced augmentation. Was initially on 900mg per day, now 300mg (one pill at bedtime). One day was 900 then went to 300 the next with no withdrawal effects.
