@jesfactsmon Hank I actually grew up just outside the village of Chelsea. Went to Jackson Community College then transferred to WMU and still live in the Kalamazoo area, in Richland! Small world.
Back to gabapentin, I want off but can't get my family doctor to do the tapering off. I am attempting to get an appointment with a new neurologist in Kalamazoo. Have had a bunch of test done and saw a neurologist at Mayo. I just was in contact with persons that be at Mayo and they are sending me detailed report of their findings and a CD with test results so I can hopefully get seen by someone here. Mayo has been great in their assistance. No problem there! Wish I could just continue at Mayo! I don't feel any help from it just the side effects which as a teacher I don't like at my job. It's like they don't think I know what I am talking about. I feel very frustrated!

You can't get the doctor to help you taper off? That sounds completely backward to me. The doctor can suggest things but you are (or should be) the one with the last say. Also, by CD did you mean clinical diagnosis? (I'm trying to learn people's medical abbreviations). Hank
