Gabapentin for anxiety

What dosage help you with anxiety?

I don’t have a huge problem with anxiety, but I do get anxious sometimes.

I noticed an anti-anxiety effect with 300mg. But gabapentin has a short half life of about 5 hours so you have to take it 2-3 times a day so there is a constant amount in your blood stream keeping you calm.

At one point I was taking 1000mg/day and it really alleviated any anxiety I had, but when i quit I had withdrawal symptoms, my body felt like it was burning up. I cranked the air conditioning up and had a fan blow on me. Everyone in the house said it was way too cold but I was boiling. Withdrawals lasted a few days.
