Yes you are right to guess that "they don't mix well". What happened to you was all due to interaction of the two drugs. I will explain you in simple words without going in the Pharmacological details of the drugs.
When we take gabapentin + Tylenol #3 at the same time, gabapentin Lowers the effective levels of Tylenol in the blood by increasing the breakdown of tylenol. In some patients (as you) there is little to benefits then of taking Tylenol in controlling pain.
