Is Neurontin superior to Gabitril filmtabs for social phobia? What doses would be good of both for an anti-anxiety effect (i don't have epilepsy or siezures). I currently take Klonopin 0.5 mg twice per day (8 am & 8 pm) for social phobia. This dose seems to low to me, but my psychiatrist won't raise this dose but I am getting a new psychiatrist after January 1st.- I've tried almost all of the anti-depressants (SSRIs, effexor, remeron etc.) they all caused me insomnia, nervousness, or in the case of remeron- no anti-anxiety or anti-depression efficacy & sleeping 17 hrs per day, which contributed to me failing out (got medical withdrawl thankfully) of my senior year of college.

I still think alcohol is the hands down best cure for social phobia but you can't drink 24 hours per day so I decided to stop drinking Sept 11th and try to find another way to be socialable & talk to women, go on dates etc, without drinking. Any suggestions would be appreciated- it seems as though most psychiatrists know little about social phobia & are scared of the first line treatment- klonopin because they say it is extremely addictive (which from the research & my experience seems false- Unlike Xanax, Klonopin takes 2 hours to work & causes no euphoria- I have heard of college kids seeking out Xanax & Valium to combine with their drinking & party with but never Klonopin or Ativan ever.
