Excellent post! I went off neurontin cold turkey and realized within a couple days that it had really affected my control of my outward expression of my own moods. I did feel more relaxed on it but it was also disinhibiting and because I was relaxed on it, I didn't notice.

It is interesting you bring up to be clear before starting what symptom, or problem you are treating. Very true. The other day I was in my pdocs office and complained about being depressed around my period, PMS. He said, oh, after we get my stimulant for ADD figured out, no problem, we'll take care of the PMS. Later I thought, wait a second..... I was only complaining because I have PMS right now..... I don't need more meds for a problem that's only a problem a couple days a month..... wow I might have accidently gotten myself a whole new drug by accident.

Pdocs often will want to treat all the problems because they are able to.

(This post is not meant at all, in any way, to imply that PMS is not a severe problem for some people.)
