I have a litl secret. I have been taking more of my gaba's then I am supposed to. I think around 2.800 mg's at once lifts me out of my depression. And it's not a high either it's just I feel normal. IDK why but, I know gabapentin when used like that came stop working after awhile, thats what I HATE about this drug. It's perfect for my mood but, other then that .I get a litl weight gain even tho I hardly eat and stuff like that. Anyone here have to be on a high dose all at once?

Diagnosed Drug Induced Psychosis........GAD.... Bipolar I....Migraines, Cluster headaches....Insomina...Panic Disorder.....







Gabapentin 800 mg 4 times a day....Effexor XR 75 mg.....Risperdal...6 mg..... clonazepam 1 mg twice daily. Seroquel 100 mg once at night.....Prilosec 20 mg in the morning...... Remeron 22.5 mg once at night.  .........Paxil 60 mg....Prazosin 4 mg......Ambien 10 mg at night.

We're not going to encourage you to mess with your own meds.  You need to speak to your doctor about what you're doing.

Dx: Complex PTSD
Tx: Lamictal (225 
) + prazosin (7.5) + therapy (something something danger zone)
