Neurontin (Gabapentin) experiences?

Posted by AdamCanada on June 12, 2008, at 23:12:03

i have depression, social anxiety, lack of drive/interest/motivation.

i take paxil, ritalin, clonazepam (klonopin), and the gabapentin...

i normally take 300mg near the start of the day and 200mg or so 5-6 hours later.... gives me little boost, makes me more social.

the thing is when i started taking it a while back the effect was Profound... it was extremely significant. Not only was I able to talk up a storm but also my sex drive increased. It was such a pleasant social and motivation booster... the effect diminished over time.

I have read that with the sucessor prega-gablin (or something) people start and stop... rinse repeat to get it's beneficial effect..

I tried this stop once and after 3 baddd un-social lifeless days i felt quite boosted once again.

Is this common? I am thinking of doing this more often but if i literally do not take gabapentin i am unable to talk to people period. i feel very depressed when i dont take gabapentin.

what are other peoples experiences?
