I didn't realize that's the question it would send. I thought it was allowing me to chat with someone in real time. I am trying to find answers for a neurological situation with my 8 year old Great Dane. His situation suddenly worsened this morning and I'm suspicious of the Gabapentin he just started. If his ataxia is getting worse from the Gabapentin how long will it take after discontinuing the drug for it to resolve?
