It is important that you take your Gabapentin medicine regularly and completely, as recommended by your physician, because missing doses can cause seizures.
Do not switch the brand of Gabapentin you are taking, and check to see that you have a sufficient quantity of the medication on hand.
The following are some suggestions for maintaining a healthy lifestyle:
Perform yoga daily.
Get a good night's sleep.
Limit your time spent on a computer or smartphone.
Be sure to take your medicine at the prescribed times.
Gabapentin may cause dizziness and drowsiness. Do not operate a motor vehicle or engage in any activity requiring mental focus until you have determined how this medication will affect you.
While using this medication, your doctor may recommend routine blood tests to check your blood cell count.
If you experience sudden mood swings or have suicidal thoughts, consult your doctor.
Do not suddenly stop taking Gabapentin without consulting your doctor because this may increase the frequency of your seizures.
Do not take antacids 2 hours before or after taking Gabapentin because they reduce the body's ability to absorb the medication.
