  1. I was on Gabapinton 100mg for two years.Decided to come off because of frequent palpitations.I was talked back into going back on it and be able to stop taking sleeping pills.
    Seven days ago I went up to two hundred but it was too strong. I’m in my 6th day of cutting back a hundred per day. I’m experiencing excruciating burning in my legs. How much longer am I going to be in this pain before I feel a sense of. normalcy? I currently am only taking 100 per night instead of two . I was only on two for seven days before I cut back a hundred .Is this the right way to reduce nightly the extra hundred?
