    It might be worth once more reading the leaflet that comes with the gabapentin to see if that has any information about cycle disruption. You are at the right age for the onset of the menopause, my thinking is it's that but I am not a doc nor a pharmacist. DD

    Hey, at a guess I'd say it could possibly to do with your new meds. Mine have visited less frequently since starting to take new meds. I assume all will settle in time x

    Could be a combination of the two. What happens to monthly cycles at menopause can be erratic to say the least - and often it isn't the orderly winding down that so many 'reassuring' tracts would have you believe(possibly because they originate from that section of the population which will never experience the process.....) - so things like drugs, stress etc may have more of an influence than might otherwise be the case if you weren't in peri-menopause.
    Check with a pharmacist and/or raise when you next see the GP.
