Mom:

Neurontin is a "mild" stabilizer, and some think it's actually an anti-anxiety drug.

Yeah, it should be calming, and that may mean you lose your fight. Post a question to Wendy B. if you get a chance, and Ritch - they both have taken it for awhile and have a bit of experience with it.

Frankly, I don't know what a stabilizer if one is not bipolar, and i don't recall what your symptoms are. As a Bipolar, it very literally stabilizes - I don't get depressed or manic. Some would say one Has to have an Anti-Depressant as well, but that's not the case for me.

Now mania and sever depression are not just extreme emotions for Bipolars - they have a life and definition of their own. One acts unlike oneself (suicidal or reckless) and one's perceptions become completely off-key.

Again, repost this since it was just archived and stick Neurontin in the subject line.

Good luck.
