This is just a quick note to report on a medication change. I take gabapentin as a mood stabilizer. The dose I was taking in the morning was making me very light-headed, so the nurse and I decided to reduce it. The result is mania. My mind is racing, and it’s not pleasant at all. I can’t focus. I can’t carry on a conversation. It’s horrid.
Well, I called the nurse practitioner, and we’ve decided to try increasing the dose I take at night to see if that will alleviate the mania while not adding to the light-headed-ness in the mornings.
