Do you think 1800mg of gabapentin is excessive amount
Welcome to the online community, it's great to have you here.
You have osteoarthritis, is this of your hands too? and then you have carpel tunnel in wrists and elbow. You are concerned at the amount of gabapentin you are taking. The amount you mention is the usual starting dose, it varies from 1800 to 3600 usually taken 3 times daily. I too take tramodol - that is an opiod painkiller, I take mine twice a day. I don't think it is usually given to help you sleep.
Here is our general information on OA
The thing with any pain relief is to take as little as you can to give you control of your pain and a clear head. So it might be time to discuss your medication with your doctor to see if you should alter dose or medication. Never stop meds without talking it through with your GP, some meds are best reduced slowly.
How are you ding otherwise? How far has your treatment of carpel tunnel got?
