Hi. Sorry for your hassle. Why are you taking Neurontin? 300mg/day is a pretty low dose. Neurontin worked very well for me but needs to be taken several times a day to work as a mood elevator & stabilizer. I had very few side fx with it & it had a very subtle calming stabilizing effect. At one point I was taking 800mgx4/day. What is your dx? I am Bipolar II & have had good success with Neurontin, Wellbutrin, & Klonopin. I was on Topamax 50mgx2/day for a while. I didn't have severe side fx while taking Topamax, but didn't really care for it. Good luck. Take Care.
