> Thanks for a very informative post! So far I've increased Neurontin very slowly and have had none of the side effects you mentioned. I'm afraid to break open a 300 mg. capsule for fear that I might either take too much or not enough, so I have a prescription for 600 mg. (200 mg. x 3) per day. I don't understand why they don't make 200 mg. capsules.

Hi Snowie,

I experienced a sort of on-off response to Neurontin. For me, I would feel significantly better upon first starting it (600mg/day) and upon subsequent dosage increase. However, after a few days, the improvement I received at any one dosage would wane. After the waning of improvement, I would begin to experience cognitive and memory disturbances. I felt weird. After being on and off Neurontin a few times, I discovered that these things were not dosage-dependant, but rather, time-dependant.

The 100mg capsules are a pain in the butt.

Good luck.
