    Told my doc it?s becoming a problem 
    Today I saw the doc and the first thing I said was I want to be weaned off gabapentin.

    She said what?s the problem?

    I told her I abuse it. This is my first step to recovery. Gabapentin hardly even gets me high anymore.

    She decided to do a slow wean. I agreed with her. Please keep me in your thoughts. I need them.

    My hopes are blighted, my heart is broken, my life a burden, everything around me is sad and mournful; earth has become distasteful to me, and human voices distract me. It is mercy to let me die, for if I live I shall lose my reason and become mad.
    I'm real proud of you for being honest with your doctor. I know I couldn't be open about it.

    You're going to have a better life for it man, congrats.

    I really hope you feel OK with your taper.

    Gabapentin isn't bad . I was on soma for a year last year . Three 350mg's a day . I had 1 sleepless night and about 2 days nervous then I was fine .

    Gabapentin w/d is brutal for me. I wish I was like the above posters- but I'm not.

    Horrible cold sweats, nausea. And the anxiety? Omg. It's inbearable.

    If you're doing a very slow taper, it would probably be much different. And good job on being honest w your Dr. But more importantly, with yourself.

    Sending you positive vibes )))))).
