tapering off Neurontin

How do you taper off of Neurontin? I have gone so far from 900 mg a day to 500mg a day. 200 per week then 100 a week now. Is that too slow? I have gotten insomnia, anxiety and general not feeling good and even increase in back pain. Is the last few hundred much harder?

You know, you might want to copy your post to the Pain Management or the Addiction Forum. I've taken some very high dosages of that stuff after surgeries and I never tapered it down and I didn't have any withdrawal effects what so ever, but that doesn't mean it can't happen.

If your having bad side effects from decreasing the dosage, be careful and I'll give you the links for those other boards.

Thanks, I think because I have been on Neurontin for 4 years at 300mg and 6 months at 900mg that it may effect one more. I'll post on the other forum to see what they say.
