I decided to try gabapentin as I've heard some good mild relaxed euphoric experiences from friends.

4pm: pick up my script, it was 90 x 300mg gabapentin.

4:15pm: I take 10x300mg while sitting in parking lot of cvs.

5pm: I finally get home and so far I don't feel anything, so I took another 10x300mg (I don't thing that's smart after reading about the bio availability drops the more your take. Anyways, I decided to eat a big fatty meal and drink a 16oz bottle of coca cola and 16oz bottle of Fanta (soft drinks supposedly helps absorbition?).

6pm: I now feel the effects and feel extremely relaxed. I so feel very social (I'm usually an introvert). My fiance had a friend come over and I couldn't stop conversating and it felt so good to just be around people and be social since I'm usually very anxious around people.

7pm: I feel absolutely relaxed, small euphoric - not much though (very much less than when I've tried opiates or benzo's) still noticeable and enjoyable for me.

8pm: I feel so good, I decide to take another 6x300mg which brings me to my total of 7800mg which is where I stopped as I felt it might start having adverse effects.

8:30p: no adverse effects, feel very relaxed, not anxious, feel like I'm in control to do/say what I normally would be too anxious to do. I feel super sociable and just want to conversate with humans, which is not normal for me.
I feel super sociable and just want to conversate with humans, which is not normal for me.

9pm: I'm still completely relaxed and feel great, my vision is slightly blurry but nothing actually matters to me as I'm so relaxed and why would it matter?

10pm: I thought it could make me sleepy but I'm not, I know I could fall asleep instantly and that's also rare as I usually have racing thoughts when I lay down. I must say gabapentin really stops my racing thoughts and overthinking etc. I'm thinking this is a great medicine for me.

11pm: without continuing to write, I'll be honest, I feel happy, relaxed, bliss, worry free and comfortable. This effect lasted until I went to bed at 2am (it was still in full effect for me when I went to bed).

End: so yea from 6p-2am I felt great relaxed, it probably would have lasted longer if I started it earlier.

I really enjoyed the experience and will continue to experiment with it. I didn't take anything else but gabapentin to ensure the report is purely for gabapentin effects for me, every person is different and this experience could be different for others.
