Experiences of Neurontin differ drastically: 100 mg for some can be highly sedating; I was taking 2700 mg, which calmed me down but made me a little drunk. It's an anti-convulsive mood stabilizer that is good for anxiety, so doesn't need to be taken with anything else. I can't imagine taking a benzo with it. Those dealing with depression would need an anti-d. It's seen to be a very neutral, or clean, drug, regarding side effects.--Johann
> I've been on almost everything now, and everything makes me worse or makes me cycle. My dr. has suggested trying Neurontin because it I have some agitation and it works in a differnt way than anything else I have tried. Other things I have tried to help my agitation have actually increased it.
> I'm nervous because I've had so many bad experiences and have heard about some people where it made them much worse. But I'm at the end of my rope. Along with the agitation is the depression and craziness.
