@margaretob , if you read the start of this thread from me, you'll notice that I was having some difficulty at one point going below a certain dosage without having depressive symptoms occur for me. I am being treated for depression as well as the anxiety that I use the Gabapentin for in my regimen. After a period of time I successfully am down to 300 mg x 2 per day and my psychiatrist and I are fine with me at that level. If you are discontinuing this medication or lowering your dosage, include you physician in the conversation of how to do so and if you have uncomfortable side-effects in the change.

Hi – thanks for sharing and updating your experience. I understand you're down to 600mg per day (2 x 300Mg) – what time of day did you find best to take your doses – both now and during your tapering process? thanks!
