I am taking gabapentin 300mg at bedtime. I am finding that I am tired all the time. I cannot get through a day without a nap. I am taking this for diabetic neuropathy in my feet. My feet are still bothering me, but I want to stop taking this to see if this is what is affecting me being so tired. Is it safe to stop this medication suddenly?
