Tapering off gabapentin
I am currently taking 300 mgs of gabapentin once daily, in the evenings, for terrible pain in my mouth caused by a blocked salivary gland. It as the only drug that worked to control the pain. I have been taking it for 3 weeks and want to discontinue/taper it because of side effects, mainly fatigue, depression and shortness of breath. What is the best way to taper this drug? I only have 300 mg capsules. I’m wondering if I can skip a day, then after a week skip two days and so on until I’m taking none? Thanks for any experiences you can share.
