I like Gabapentin, i.e., Neurontin, very much. I have fibromyalgia and am bipolar. I don't take it all the time because it tends to lose potency pretty quickly, however, it calms and relaxes me unlike anything else.
I've tried Lyrica and just got sleepy and a little depressed. I guess I don't take it so much for pain relief, which it has little effect on, or for stabilizing my bipolar moods. Mainly just to experience the calm, tranquility I can get from taking 3 pills every now and then.
