Gabapentin dose?

Postby supersha » Mon Aug 20, 2012 7:01 pm

Hi Everyone,
I havn't been online in ages, had loads of probs :( hope everyones doing ok, anyway i'm on gabapentin and today my G.p has highered the dose from 1.800mg a day 2.700mg but everything I can find online says 1.800 is the highest, just wondered if anyone else was on such a high dose before i up them.
Take care

I was on 3200mg but stopped me being able to pass urine so had to come off them. Pregablin same, amytrip same, nortry same. On a lowish dose of nortryp with slow release morphine to help me sleep along with many many other drugs. Think I've tried them all now, lol.
