I decided to get off of the 2400mg of neurontin I had been taking for a few years now. I never noticed any pain relief from it. My Dr. said just quit taking the 800mg at night for a week, then the day one, etc. I had really bad withdrawal after the first day so cut them in half and have finally gotten down to 400mg/day. However, I forgot to take the 200mg last night and woke up early and jittery at 6. I never get up that early. I took the 200mg and waited 30 min before the jitters stopped and I got back to sleep. Why is this so hard to wean off of. I took 100mg at 3:00pm and started feeling really nervous by 7:00. I would think this would be easier. Fortunately, I have 1 more refill to help ease off these but hate having to feel jittery just to go down 100mg at a time.
