Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 7 months ago

there is a small risks for increasing you to be sleepy if you take gabapentin and lamotrigine

if you take these before bed time, before sleep, that is fine

but taking these medications together can make you more sleepy and tired

let me know if you have questions.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
