After doing some research I believe my very intense panic attack is caused by side effects of gabapentin which I take for anxiety, quite the opposite effect. My doc made a major increase a couple weeks ago and I’ve got nearly every side effect listed which include:
Clumsiness or unsteadiness
continuous, uncontrolled, back-and-forth, or rolling eye movements
blurred or double vision
When I get up at night which is when I take my highest dose, I’m bouncing off the walls down the hallway. A few days ago I was outside and lost my balance and fell. I NEVER fall. I’ve noticed my eyes have been blurry and jumping around. I still feel terrible.
Should I go to the hospital? What could they do to stop these effects immediately or do I just have to wait for the med to leave my body? I mean, I really feel terrible right now. The half life is 5-7 hours!
