Welcome to Healingwell.
I take neurontin as one of my meds. Neurontin doesn't work well on it's own for bipolar. You usually need a mood stabilizer to go with it but it does have little side effects and it does help make me tired but it also seems to help out some with anxiety.
"It is not easy to live life sometimes and face the world with a smile when you're crying inside. It takes a lot of courage to reach down inside yourself, hold on to that strength that's still there, and know that tomorrow is a new day with new possibilities. But if you can hold on long enough to see this through, you'll come out a new person - stonger, with more understanding and with new pride in yourself from knowing you made it" Kathy Obara
