I’m curious what’s everyone’s starting dose with gabapentin? My PCP put me on it for spinal stenosis and other pain. I’m taking 300 mg 3X/day

      I started taking it when I was young, so I don't remember what my starting was. I think it was maybe 100 or 200 mg a day, but I'm now up to 600 mg 3x a day :^)

      I am on 100mg twice a day. Doctor added 100mg for mid-day, but I am worried with all the pharmaceuticals I am on, adding it will cause other side effects. THAT is my anxiety talking. I talk to my therapist tomorrow and I am going to ask her to walk me through this anxiety so I can start the third dose a day.

      I started at 600 a day following a bad back surgery . I had the surgery corrected 18 months later. I still have back issues but I take gabapentine at bedtime only because it can make me feel a bit sluggish.

      I started at 300 3x a day. They bumped me up to 400 then 600. But I got sick at 600.
