Neurontin / Gabapentin working for me!


I posted a few weeks ago. After many years of SSRI's plus stuff like Buspar, and Phenibut, my doc gave me some Ativan. 05 mg. The smallest dose. I used them up faster than she thought I should have, so she wouldn't refill it.

Bummer.

She put me on Gabapantin. I've been on it for about 10 days, and I am now up to 1800 mg a day.

It definitely works for me. Not like the Ativan, but I would say that this drug, along with the Lexapro and Inderal I'm taking, reduces my anxiety level by another 10-15%

I sleep well too.

That's great that it's working for you. That's the same dose I've been on for the last five years, and it's done really well for me too.

I found gabapentin effective for anxiety as well.

Medication-related posts are for brainstorming purposes only. Talk to your doctor.

My meds: Parnate, Lamictal, Wellbutrin, trazodone

I found gabapentin to be a sugar pill with no positive nor negative effects -- no effects at all.
