Hey Colin,

I've had some bizarre disociative experiences with Neurontin. The experience is like being somewhat removed from what I'm doing. I've driven like this and it's pretty scary. Generally when this happens my mood is excellent.
I've noticed that it happens if I take 600mg at one time.

Is this similar to your feeling?

Pete

> Aren't you taking Neurontin aswell? I ask because I tried it briefly, and don't quite know what to make of it.I took one 100mg pill late one evening, and the following day I drove a route I'd taken countless times before, and took every wrong turn possible.I also wandered around putting plates etc. in the wrong cupboards!
