> hello...i'm trying to decide if i should go on neurontin or lamictal for my severe social anxiety....does anyone know which one would work better? thanks~

I took Neurontin. I thought it was a miracle cure, until I found out its dosing really depended a lot on how recently and how long I was taking it for... and after taking it for like a week everyday, its anxitoylic effect seemed to go away unless I gave it a week long holiday. It also made me tired unless I had a full and satisfying rest... and it often made me appear like a zombie to others (I spoke in a severely monotonous voice on it).

Try Neurontin out, I don't know what Lamictal is. Neurontin dosing is very individualistic- some work off 400, some 3000, who knows what you'll need. I got no effects or felt depressed at 400 sometimes, and other times 3000 gave me no effect. I've eventually decided I feel better "sober" than on Neurontin or Klonopin or Ritalin or Dexedrine or Adderall or whatever else felt like making me either anxious or tired.

Unfortunately no drug has proven to me to escape the continium I find of either going from sleepy but relaxed to alert but anxious.

I've got ADD and Anxiety, and something tells me they best friends who don't like getting separated when my pills try to discipline them =)
