Default Progression/Baclofen

4 weeks ago I started 5mg of baclofen once a day. I take it at bedtime and it quickly knocks me out. I also take 300mg of gabapentin(been on it for 5 months). I started noticing that I was feeling very weak. My legs are very weak, my balance is off, my hands are weaker and my twitching has drastically increased. My twitching was almost nonexistent since I started taking gabapentin. It is now nonstop and all over.

I was hopeful that it was just the baclofen but after 4 days of not taking it I still feel the same. So now I'm stressing that this is progression and how things are going to be. Im wondering if I should increase my gabapentin? My dr prescribed it to be taken x3 a day however it also makes me groggy so I normally take X1 at bedtime. I noticed that it comes in 100mg so I'm wondering if that may possibly be a better option than the 300mg I'm taking.
