I am bipolar and hve been on neurontin for about 1 year. I really like it. I am not as angry and my anxiety has been lowered greatly. I take 400mg. 3x a day.(I also take 200 mg, of wellbutrin, but the wellbutrin won't do it alone). I sleep much better too. Before I could hardly get out of bed and face the world. Neurontim really helped. I was on Depakote before and I also lost the desire to do anything. I felt numb and almost suicidal. I also wanted to eat everything in sight. And I did. I gained about 25 pounds. That's when they changed me to neuronin. I don't want to eat as much. As a matter of fact, I don't eat much at all but I haven'[t lost any weight. I heard it lowers your metabolism. Does anyone have this problem with neurontin? Is there another drug that could with bipolar but could also help with losing weight? I exercise daily and eat very little. Without the neurontin, I would have lose 20 pounds by now. Help. the weight gain is depressing. isk of becoming dependent. He is having me take neurontin with Klonopin right now and trying to wean me off the Klonopin. Do you think the neurontin will work alone? I'm scared cuz the Klonopin has been great although I am already building a tolerance to it. Chrissy
> I'm new to this site so please bear along. I have been battling w/mental problems for a long time. Yesterday was put on neurontin for social anxiety. How have others faired w/this drug which was just ok'ed for this purpose. Was on Depakote before. Felt bad on it. Lost all desire to do anything - completely blunted. Any one else have this happen?
