my doc just pres. me all this... you would think with all this i might not have ANY anxiety anymore!!??
im just wondering if anyone else is on gabapentin... and  if it has helped their anxiety? my anxiety is mainly around night time and so i dont sleep well because of it.
ive been  on the buspar for a while now, and actually my friend tells me she can tell the diffence in me when i miss a dose and when i take it all the time like im suppose to so im going to just assume its doing what its suppose to! :)

Good Morning,

I have no personal experience with Gabapentin (Neurotin) but I am sure one of our members will be along that has some advice for you.

Take care and keep posting.

Hi Chantne,

I never took neurontin, but I did take Lexapro and Buspar. Lexapro made me sick and I could not tolerate it and Buspar made me very very sleepy. Therapy and self help books helped me finally kick my anxiety. I have a friend taking neurontin for back surgery, I know it's not related, but she has told me she hasn't noticed any differences or side effects (i asked because i was curious since i knew it was also used for psychiatry)

Best wishes. Help for Anxiety Anxiety Info Lens
