Excessive Sleepiness Being On Neurontin

Excessive Sleepiness Being On Neurontin

I have been to a Rheumatologist in Cape Town . He has put me on Neurotin. I am on the full dose 800mg in the morning and 800 mg in the evening. The problem is that I have gone form only getting 2 to 3 hours sleep a night to , sleeping the entire day. I am awake from around 4pm to about 1 or 2 am then wake up at 5:30am, have tea take my meds and within an hour I am fast asleep. I fall asleep in pain and wake up in pain. Has this happened to anyone else? This is madness !

I tried Neurontin also but couldn't do it due to what you are describing. I just couldn't function.
