Sorry for what you're going through. Dr. P is really good about answering but it seems like he answers over the weekend. So you may not get a response for a few days. There must be another doctor or nurse you can talk to. Or maybe call your pharmacist.

I don't want to give advice since I'm not a medical professional, but if you stopped the gabapentin now, you probably would not have too many stopping side effects, since you haven't been on it very long. But do as much research yourself as you can. Google "stopping gabapentin" or similar searches.

Hopefully, you'll be able to get in touch with a doctor!

As the previous poster mentioned, Dr. P usually responds on the weekends and so you won't get an answer from him in a timely manner, not for your question. And even if he could, he can't give such specific advice about your prescribed medications.

Please call the clinic, the doctor, even your local pharmacist, to discuss this. They are the best people who can address this issue.

Let us know how it goes for you, Fran.
