Abrupt withdrawal of anticonvulsant agents in epileptic patients may precipitate status epilepticus. Therefore, like other similar medicinal products, seizure frequency increases or the onset of new seizures with gabapentin.
Gabapentin should not be considered a treatment of absence seizures. It may exacerbate these seizures in some patients. Consequently, one should use gabapentin with caution in patients with mixed seizure disorders, including absence seizures.
Effects on the Ability to Drive or Operate Machinery: In conclusion, patients should neither drive a car nor operate complex machinery until they have gained sufficient experience on gabapentin.
