frances (4 years ago):

I was given this new medicine called gabapertin, I was to take one pill three times a day. I took one pill at 11:30 am and didn't wake up until 8:30 pm. I ate before I took the medicine, thank God. I was unable to take the pill as prescribed as you can see. My suggestion is DO NOT TAKE THE PILL.
