I used gabapentin to detox (medically supervised) instead of Suboxone. Fortunately for me, I was a dependent rather than an addict on the substance use disorder scale. Addicts struggle with cravings after detox, dependents don't.
My question, does gabapentin slow down the process of healing the brain's chemistry? Does it interfere with the brain re-establishing it's normal chemical balances? I started, during detox, with 900mg/d for 3 days, then dropped it to 600mg/d for 3 more days. Now I'm down to 100mg/d at night.
I still have this fuzziness in my head that I'm waiting to clear up. I thought the gabapentin might be contributing to this so I stopped taking it. Everything else is fine, I slept well, no other symptoms, but the fuzziness did not go away.
