What is Gabapentin ???
Gabapentin was originally formulated and approved for treating convulsions and seizures. Gabapentin interacts with the neurotransmitter glutamate and slows down its effects, making those taking this drug less likely to have a seizure. Side effects of taking gabapentin are usually mild and can include dizziness, drowsiness, diarrhea and a weak, tired feeling. People taking gabapentin should be aware, however, that it does have particularly unpleasant withdrawal symptoms, even after taking it for a relatively short amount of time and at low doses. But can you overdose on gabapentin? Here, we’ll discuss the whether and how gabapentin overdose can happen and what to expect if someone has taken too much gabapentin. (mygenericpharmacy)
