Comment:
I have been taking Gabapentin for over 10 years. I take 3 800mg. tablets and 3 400mg. tablets every day. I also take Amtrypiline 50 mg. at bedtime. I hate the side effects. I have very bad balance, an extremely dry mouth, a tremor, memory loss, difficulty thinking and get confused. I am hesitant about cutting down, although I have done so at times. This europathy has really ruined my life.
