>Anyway, sorry to rant, but its ridiculous that your doc is pushing Neurontin as if its actually useful. If you have epilepsy that's only partly controlled by other meds, and that's the reason for your anxiety, then maybe Neurontin could help--its really only good as an adjuvant anti-convulsant in some forms of epilepsy. that's it, at least in terms of solid, data-supported indications.
But do you think using Neurontin to help taper/wean off from a benzo is possibly another valid & helpfull usage of the drug? I've read such accounts more than once on this board (though anecdotal of course), including a very recent post. Know of ANY studies done on this?
