In reply to GABITRIL (tiagabine) new anti-anxiety drug?????, posted by 3 Beer Effect on December 14, 2001, at 22:42:11

I have been on several medications over the years. I have been told I was psychotic, I have been told I am bipolar, I have been told alot of things. I have taken trilifon, stellazine, Paxil, Prozac, Nardil,zyprexa, tegretol, lithium, neurotin. You name it, I have taken it. I hold a full time job (as a therapist) and have always functioned fairly well despite a few hospitalizations where they were trying to figure out what was wrong with me. I have recently weaned myself of all medications (very slowly) and what I have found is that I am extremely anxious. I did not recognize it as such years ago, but am quite aware now that this is my core problem. Neurotin does help with this, but I am curious about gabitril and if this might not be a better med for me. I truly would like to be med free, but I find this anxiety to be almost incapacitating. I don't mind taking medication if it is necessary and the correct one for me. I do however get irritated with myself, that I have let psychiatrists prescribe medications for me that are potentially harmful (anti-psychotics) when unecessary. I would like to know more aobut people's experiences with Gabitril,especially if one has tried both Neurotin and Gabitril.
