From what I've heard, Neurontin does great things for Social Phobia for 1/3-1/2 of people who try it for a reasonable length of time, and is a complete bust for others. Also, for some it causes a lot of sedation, dizziness and/or cognition problems, while for others it's virtually side-effect free after the first week or two.

If, for some reason, the Klonopin ever stops working wonders for my Social Phobia (and there's sure no evidence of that after months of use!), Neurontin is high on my list of alternatives to try.

Serzone is another. That's one AD that seems incredibly variable in terms of reactions -- a low side-effect wonder for some, and a totally non-theraputic source of major side-effects for other (excepting sexual dysfunction). But the reported de-personalization tendency of all mood stabilizers/AD's would concern me.


> Neurontin, (one of the anticonvulsants used now as mood stabilizers)is very helpful for social phobia.
