Dosage/Direction for Use
In patients with poor general health, i.e., low body weight, after organ transplantation, etc., the dose should be titrated more slowly, either by using smaller dosage strengths or longer intervals between dosage increases.
It is not necessary to monitor gabapentin plasma concentration to optimize gabapentin therapy.
If gabapentin is reduced, discontinued and/or an alternate anticonvulsant drug is added to the therapy, this should be done gradually over a minimum of one week. (See Table 1.)
