gabapentin issues while in diazepam wd

 

I was prescribed gabapentin 3 years ago to help with sleep and anxiety during diazepam wd.  I really don't know if it ever helped or not since I have had severe insomnia most

of these 3 years.  Now that I am at 2 mgs of diazepam,  my sx have gotten much more severe.  I have read that gabapentin has the potential to make the wd worse.  I am nearly

totally debilitated (weak, crushing fatigue, body aches unlike I have had previously).  My PCP thinks thinks it is depression.  I am 76 years old, and my body can't take much more

of this.  Any insights, please!!

Welcome, Hanging.

 

I moved your post to start your Introductions topic, where you can get started asking questions and update your progress as you go on.

 

What times of day do you take your drugs? Are these side effects worse at any particular time of day? What is your sleep schedule?

 

Did you recently change dosage of any of your drugs? Which, when, how much? Please put ALL your drugs in the Drug Interactions Checker https://www.drugs.com/drug_interactions.php
and copy and paste the results or a link to them in this topic.
