    I despise autocorrect....Valentin should be Gabapentin.

    Gabapentin

    It depends on why your doctor prescribed gabapentin. Some say Valentin reduces appetite, although that wasn't so for me, as my hunger stayed the same. If I remember correctly it takes some time for this drug to build up in your system, so 7 days seems a very short time. I did not experience any adverse side effects, so in my opinion you would be fine to give it a try for a week. I would ask your doctor why you need to take it, and why only for 7 days. Topomax or even Buproprion were also supposed to reduce appetite according to my doctor, and although I took those for migraines, neither suppressed my appetite. Hope this helps.
