He decreased my morning dose on Monday. Big improvement. Just like that. It didn't even taken a day for the change to adjust. I had that same problem with Depakote back in October of last year, and it improved after he lowered that. He doesn't want to adjust my Gabapentin, since it's also for my chronic headaches/migraines.
I used to take Gabapentin but had to have it removed because of to many side effects to deal with. Such as; headaches, dizziness, memory problems and uncontrollable shaking of the body just to name a few. You are probably having other side effects from the other two drugs on top of that as well.
I've been on it for a while. My doctor increased it recently because I was have problems with different seizure med- Depakote. I'm actually on three different meds. The other is Gabapentin which is also for my migraines.
