utahlaura Posted July 1, 2009 Share Posted July 1, 2009 My Pdoc has me on neurontin for anxiety..1800 per day. It didn't seem to be working so she decided to take me off of it nad I discovered that it had been working as an antidepressant for me because I started to get depressed right off the bat. So I went back on it and it helped with the depression again but not the anxiety. I had been on 3 mg of klonapin for a long time and it was working great, but this new Pdoc was one of the ones that believes in getting you off all yur meds and using counciling instead. So she deceased my klonapin to 2 mg a day. I went nuts with anxiety with only 2mg and kept begging her to help me. That I knew myself and had been on 3mg of klonapin for 5 years and it was still working amazingly enough and still needed it in the worse way. But no go. She refused. So I decided to go to a different Pdoc for a second opinion. He agreed that if the 3mg of klonapin had worked for me for so long that I should continue with 3mg per day as I always had. Duh, right. Trouble was that he increased my neurontin from 1800mg to 2700mg a day. Wow, that's a lot. I felt wierd for about a week then started to feel very depressed..like it was too much of a downer. So I went back to taking what I was before on my own...1800mg a day and am doing much better. What want to know is does anyone know anything about neunontin for anxiety or for anything else. Anyone have any experience with this stuff? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
