Gabapentin taper?

Recommended Posts

Thanks Remolacha,

The vet didn’t mention a taper either, it’s just that when you look it up, most websites say to taper it to prevent rebound pain and seizures. Perhaps that’s more applicable for animals taking it initially for seizure control?

I’ll ask the vet at the follow-up, but I’m pretty sure she’ll recommend cold-turkey.

Perhaps for long term use, but I wouldn't think so just for 2 weeks.  That's a lower dose as well.
