I just started Neurontin. 300mg 2x/day. Also I take Parnate 60mg and Lamictal 200mg. Neither are helping me much, if any. I take them for unipolar depression.
I have some questions about Neurontin:
What dose have people found to be effective? How quickly did you notice an effect? Did you gain weight? What other side effects? How much did/does it help you - ie, what positive effects are there from the drug? Mainly, I guess I wanted it to help me be more calm, less agitated, also more relaxed in certain situations. I don't exactly have full-blown social phobia, but let's just call it social uneasiness when I don't really know people, and a HUGE phobia of speaking in front of people. I also think I have a touch of ADD.
