> > Hi,
> > I haven't been actually diagnosed with anything, but do experience bouts of depression...haven't noticed a certain pattern...just feel depressed alot..especially in the winter. I know that is a seasonal thing. I get stressed very easy and experience anxiety and have panic attacks. Lately I have not been able to sleep. I stay up until early morning and then want to sleep all day. I have gained about 40lbs and can't seem to do anything to lose it. I have no motivation and am very irritable. I've been on Paxil, Depakote, Zoloft, Wellbutrin, Wellbutrin XL and Prozac. My doctor has prescribed Gabitril to help me sleep. I'm concerned that it will make me feel even worse then I do now and also make me gain even more weight. Has anyone experienced weight loss or gain on this drug? Thankyou for any info you can give me.
> I have been taking Gabitril for a little over two weeks. I don't think it makes me any more sleepy than I would be otherwise. Also, it has increased anxiety rather than decrease it. Of course it is important to acknowledge that two people can react differently to the same drug. I haven't put on any weight. Actually, I have lost a few pounds.

Thanks Scott for the info. I guess I will try it out and see what happens.
