Hi, @guener – I took gabapentin for post herpetic neuralgia and don't recall tapering off being much of an event for me. My doctor gave me a tapering schedule, and I believe I followed it without incident.

A couple other members who have mentioned gabapentin or going off of it include @gailb @lingram @littlepaw @johnmcmillan @artscaping. Hoping they may have some input for you on tapering off of this medication from what they've personally experienced or been advised.

Hi there sorry if I have misled you but I am tapering off venlafaxine, not gabapentin. Im choosing to keep gabapentin as it serves very well. I have successfully weaned Zopiclone and still have Lorazepam to go after the antidepressant. Im doing ok actually. The withdrawals have been quite manageable. My doctors guidance was imperitive and one thing I will say for them they left me with a safety net right through my procedure which left me in control and plenty of choice should I get stressed. Im winning friends.
