In reply to GABITRIL (tiagabine) new anti-anxiety drug?????, posted by 3 Beer Effect on December 14, 2001, at 22:42:11
I was interested in this too. Tiagabine is a GABA reuptake inhibitor, so it seems like it should relieve anxiety. Since I need to be on medication to prevent partial seizures anyway, I wanted to find one that might help with other symptoms. But there weren't many responses.
I'm also interested in Sabril (vigabatrin), which is a GABA transaminase inhibitor (prevents metabolism of GABA by one pathway). Didn't get any responses about this one.
