Effects of withdrawal

As with other antiepileptic drugs, gabapentin should be tapered gradually over several weeks to avoid rebound seizures. Dosage and administration

The usual dosage range for the treatment of seizures is between 600 and 1800 mg daily, divided into three doses. Doses up to 3600 mg a day have been well tolerated. The manufacturer recommends beginning 300 mg on day 1, followed by 300 mg twice a day on day 2, and then 300 mg three times a day on day 3 (see Table.! for dosage forms). Thereafter, the dose should be adjusted as needed to maximize efficacy and tolerability. Therapeutic plasma concentrations of gabapentin have not been established, so routine monitoring is not required.
