I have a litl secret. I have been taking more of my gaba's then I am supposed to. I think around 2.800 mg's at once lifts me out of my depression. And it's not a high either it's just I feel normal. IDK why but, I know gabapentin when used like that came stop working after awhile, thats what I HATE about this drug. It's perfect for my mood but, other then that .I get a litl weight gain even tho I hardly eat and stuff like that. Anyone here have to be on a high dose all at once?
gabapentin I need high dose.
