I started taking Gabitril about 1month ago. I started taking 4mg twice a day for 14 days. I increases to 2 pills twice a day. My hands started too shake, leg cramps and trouble talking. I was losing my train of thought. I had neck surgery, from C-2 to T-2 all was fused. This is the worse drug I've taking. And I've taking a lot of drugs for pain.

I was prescribed this forbi-Polar disorder. I have been taking it five yrs.I had back surgery,and I now have to take narcotic pain meds.Only take 4mg daily,but I find it almost impossible to stay awake during the day. Lately I have been having episodes of sleep paralisis. I am going to try to taper off,and hope to finally stop. I hate the way this med makes me feel!!

Comment:
Took this medicine a few years ago for about 2 months. Took the prescribed dosage. Made me very irritable and confused - which was the complete opposite of what I and my doctor were expecting. It still bothers me when I think of its effects on me.

Comment:
Within a couple of days of starting this medication for psychiatric reasons I started to talk to walls, made absolutely no sense when talking to people because I would say really odd things, wondered aimlessly talking to nothing. Then lost all my coordination and eventually couldn't talk or walk. This all happened in a matter of days.
