Braddo what are going to replace it with, if it is lyrica then no you should not experience any withdrawals, but if you are not having any further anti-epileptic I would recommend a slow tapering until you are off.

Lyrica seems to be the better option, and at lower doses, and by going by others better tolerated, here in SA you have to go on Gabapentin first before you can go onto Lyrica.
Hope this helps better than Gabapentin.
