I do think it is worthwhile to try Gabitril once other more traditional drugs are tried first. I have seen some people respond to Gabitril by experiencing a reduction in anxiety and insomnia. However, I think it is important to recognize the possibility of adverse reactions occurring with its use.
Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.
