Gabapentin = No For Me

OK, so I tried Gabapentin for my oscillopsia, I have read studies that suggest it can help some people with oscillopsia or nystagmus. 300mg three times a day. I took my first 300mg capsule Tuesday night (the day before yesterday) and then yesterday I took one at 6am, 1 at noon and 1 at 6pm. I felt pretty tired yesterday but I was mostly sitting and writing so I kind of didn’t think too much of it. Today I got up at 5, took a pill at 6 and started my morning routine. In half an hour I started feeling unusually tired and in 1 hour I was dragging myself around. I felt like when I was a child sitting in the back of the car on our way home from my grandparent’s house late at night; my eyelids were heavy and my head was bobbing as I tried to stay awake but inevitably fell asleep. Only I had just woke up so I was not about to lie in bed all day.
