I have been on 1800 mg of Neurontin for about 3 months and it has taken care of nerve pain. But I think it is affecting my motor skills and balance. I've had bad balance for a few years, but it's worse. I have to hold on to rails going down the stairs and I can't walk in a straight line at work. No one has said anything yet. As I am typing this I can tell that I type slower. Also, my short term memory is gone. It also makes me VERY spacey and dense....I am so embarrassed sometimes. I've been given more responsibilities at work and I think I'm going to blow it because of this medication. I cut my 600 mg in 1/2 and I'm only taking 1/2 this morning, 1/2 at lunch and then 1 full one before bed. I need to taper off of this fast and hopefully I will get back to what is normal for me.
Anyone have experience with Neurontin and side affects? Or tapering off of Neurontin?
