Hey Carol ~ glad you found something to give you relief! When I first started gabapentin (generic) I was sleepy too. It took a couple of weeks to adjust. I take 300 mg to go to bed and if it’s been a hard day I will add another 100 mg. During the day, I take 100 mg as needed. My pain is “usually” the worst at nite. Sometimes I add an extra-strength Tylenol. I found that it was worth being sleepy until I found what worked! And yes, my head was “foggy” but for me it seems to be a GBS residual. I just don’t go out on the days I don’t remember my name ๐Ÿ˜€

Hang in there ๐Ÿ˜‰
