> 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.

Neurontin is probably the only anticonvulsant that seems to have some tangible effectiveness for sp. I got the best results with 300mg doses either twice or three times a day. Some people do better with more. I was too tired above 900mg/day. The best meds to throw in with it (besides the benzos and SSRi's you listed) I found were a low-dose of Adderall combined with an low-dose atypical AP (Risperdal). Of course the TD issue is important to me and I will not take any AP's unless absolutely necessary. But I found that Neurontin 300mg twice daily+ Adderall 5-10mg/day + Risperdal .5mg at bedtime did wonders.
