Continue your gabapentine as told by your docter .As far as addarol is concerned it has side effects ranging from mild to severe like headache ,nervousness,inability to sleep,increase haert rate,and also increase in seizure activity.So this medicine needs to be titrated well by your docter so that you can adjust to it and less side effect.If not taken then probably you might problems in concentrating for your studies.So I guess better to be in touch with your docter while on this medication because of the fine tuning it requires.
Take Care.
