Take it easy, we're all in this together, I didn't mean offense. My point is only that the number of google hits for a search term means nothing about the search term. You have to read the content. We seem to agree on that point.
I'm not disputing that Gabapentin cessation may cause withdrawal symptoms in some people. Your experience seems to support that.
I've taken 2800mg per day for years. I've occasionally stopped cold-turkey for weeks at a time. During those times, I sometimes felt as though I experienced mild withdrawals during the first week. So for me, the answer is maybe, and mild, and most certainly nothing like benzo withdrawals.
This is not advice, just my experience. I'm not a health-care professional. Anyone wanting to start or stop Gabapentin should consult their own physician.
