> I went to my school psychiatrist, and was diagnosed with GAD. He was against benzos, even though a previous script from my physician helped alot, so he put me on Gabatril, since Its supposed to work similarly. After a week or so, I felt some relief in anxiety. I tapered up to what he felt is a normal dose for anxiety.
> Then the anxiety pretty much came back. Then, mostly in situations where I'd become extra panicked, all space in my field of vision would become 2dimentional. I couldnt judge how deep a room went, the wall floor and ceiling just seemed pressed up against my eyes, except for a tunnel of regular 3d space in the center of my vision. Very weird. Like a street drug. Reminded me of the couple of times years ago I tried 'shrooms.


Sorry about your predicament. GAD (although that's a catch all-term meaning little by itself--another thing the pdocs are good at) is hell, I know. ONe prob is the "consultation" kickbacks that most pdocs receive for prescribing the newest meds--whether they're indicated, efficacious, or not. My recomendation is Effexor. It's a GAD agent, too--but without the GABA thrown in that makes you loopy. DOn't quit on it until you've reached 300 mg. The Noradrenaline uptake inhibition will regulate your GABA, as it's supposed to. Try D,L phenylalanine to top it off--it'll booost your available NOR., Dopamine--but I'd also add Taurine to counteract the increase in epinepherine that comes along with it--as well as l-theanine--and L-Methionine.
By the way, if you're school pdoc thinks that Gabatril and benzos are comparable, he needs to go back to school himself.

Keep me posted
