I am taking 200 mg of neurontin 3 times a day. I was wondering what the safe way to taper down is?

    There's no need to taper off this medication. Gabapentin.

    You're on a low dose and in theory can just stop them .

    If you wanted to taper down, do 6 a day for a week ( as you are). Then take 5 a day for a week /2week. Then take 4 a day for a week,... Etc etc.

    Why would you want to? I take 300 mg Gabapentin (Neurontin) 2 times a day for peripheral neuropathy, but it is also prescribed to help prevent epileptic seizure..
