1800 mg oral Pharms - Gabapentin (pill / tablet)


Better Than Marijuana

I was prescribed gabapentin 300mg 4x a day for anxiety. But I switched to just taking 3 pills (900mg) right before bed. It works wonderfully for sleep for the past month! But last night I decided to take 6 pills at once instead of 3.

Well, within 2 hours I was high! It felt kind of like weed because of that physical feeling in my head, but the rest of the experience was a lot better. I was relaxed, happy, feeling very sociable, and open. I spoke with my cousin who I normally do not get along with, and was able to gracefully respond to all her bullshit and didn't get fazed by it at all. I felt like anything I wanted to accomplish was possible (not in a manic sort of way... it just felt like my inhibitions that normally hold me back were removed.)
Drawbacks were that I was unbalanced and had a spaced out look when I checked myself in the mirror.

I would definitely try this out again.
