  1. Has anyone taken Gabapentin ? ( generic form of Neurontin ). It's an anti-convulsant that my Dr. has prescribed for my anxiety. I just started on it today. I take three 100mg pills through the day. Thanks.

    I was on this for awhile.. it really didnt effect me negatively or postively that I can say for sure.. I was on the same dose as you.. I hope that it helps you.

    Can also be used for nerve pain. I've known people it helped. Good luck! :hug: If you have any questions try... :)

    I may be way off here but I'm pretty sure my grandad was prescribed this to try to stop him having seizures... ?


    Okay, I just looked it up and it seems likely I'm right. Apparently it makes him very drowsy, particularly when combined with alcohol.

    How he would have a clue what it's like without alcohol I haven't the faintest idea! :laugh:

    This drug is used as a pain killer as well as anti-convulsant. I've known several patients be on it. I also know the dose can go up a lot higher than what your on.

    i hope it has the desired affect for you.

    yeah the dosage can go up higher.. I was on 600mg at one point but that didnt last long enough to know if it was helping or not.
