I am taking 300mg.  Started taking it only at night because it makes me drowsy.  Then he changed it to 1AM/1PM.  I sometimes feel like a zombie, but I will take it twice a day for a while and see how I feel.  He said I shouldn't drive a car/operate machinery while taking it.  Maybe take it when I get home instead of when I get up.  But that means I don't drive all day if I don't have to leave the house until later.  For church it is fine to take it when I get home because we go to early service and if I have to drive I can take it when I get home which is about 10:45, so not too bad.  But, then, Larry usually drives to church and back.  Sorry for rambling with the long explanation!

Sharon, I spelled the Gabapentin incorrectly in my last post. I spelled it (Gabapenton). You spelled it Ganapentine. Could we be talking about different drugs? I haven't had any side affects from it. I may just be more tolerant than you. I had the same thing with Metformin, I didn't have the dreaded Diarrhea. Good luck with it.
