Question about gabapentin

My doctor prescribed me gabapentin 300 mg tablets because I told her my legs kept twitching/jerking at night when I'm trying to go to sleep. Is this prescription supposed to be used to treat this?

Re: Question about gabapentin

I was prescribed Gabapentin for nerve pain. It is also an anti seizure med as well as helps with hot flashes!

I didn't have any serious side effects from it. I was taking a much higher dosage as well.

Hope it works for you!!
