    I have been taking gabapentin for several months, and it is helping. My only concern is whether or not I will have withdrawals when it is discontinued. Does anyone know anything about this?

    I haven't taken gabapentin myself...I am on Lyrica, a cousin to gabapentin (Neurontin). I am pretty sure that you cannot stop this medication cold turkey and that there may even be some withdrawal symptoms when tapering off. It is something that you would need to be under a doctors care for.

    My question is...if it is helping why would you want to stop taking it?
