The only one on the list I've used is Gabapentin, and it didn't do much for me.

Hi rosesinjanuary,

about five years ago, I took Prozac and Wellbutrin for Panic Attacks. The prozac made me feel like a zombie. I was in sales at the time and it was hard for me to function or do anything. Wellbutrin made me feel like I drank too much caffeine. This doesn't happen to everyone though. That was just my experience with them and I am very sensitive to medcations. I was also on xanex at the same time too until the ssri's kicked in for the panic attacks. I found, for me, they brought me down. I did better on Klonopin. I've tried Darvecet recently for pain and it helped some. It isn't a very strong pain med at all. I rather take Tramadol.

I am not on gabepentin, but I take Savella for fibromyalgia. Is that why you are asking?

Darvocet isn't a very effective pain medicine in my opinion (and my MD friends).  There are better alternatives for both mild and severe pain.  The only other one I've taken is Wellubutrin.  I didn't notice a difference.

prozac - made me climb the walls after just 2 weeks (this was prior to my LD).

wellbutrin - currently on 300 mg. a day.

xanax - currently on 1 to 5 mgs. a day. I am dependent on this drug, but will taper off if there ever comes a time when I don't need it.

ritalin - didn't do much for me although I would give it a try.

darvicot - don't take extra Tylenol ith this. I was doubled over with "liver" pain from all the Tylenol in Darvocet.

tylenol with codeing - did't do much to help.

gabentinin (sp) - sounds like I may have been on it at one time.... but can't remember.
