Neurontin (Gabapentin) as needed?


#1

Has anyone used Gabapentin as needed for anxiety or do you stickk to a regular dosing schedule or both?


#2

Never heard it prescribed on an as needed basis.
We’re you prescribed it this way?


#3

It hardly does anything for anxiety. Propranolol would do more for anxiety than neurontin. And that’s not saying much at all.


#4

I take it on a regular basis for pain but I think I’ve read somewhere here that people are using it for anxiety as needed.


#5

I think @ninjastar takes it as needed


#6

I take it as needed for anxiety. I like it. I only need to take about theee or four a month. If I take it too frequently, it makes me manic and hypersexual.


#7

I currently take it 3x a day every day for anxiety/mood problems. It works really well for that.


#8

I take it as needed for anxiety.


#9

I only take it at night for sleep maintenance insomnia. Some days it’s really effective other days not so much.


#10

I used to abuse neurotinine for a better mood.

It works for some. Not all the time I think. The trick is, if you don’t really need it everyday to only take it when you do, then it has a greater chance of working. But i can only see it working on a more milder sort of anxiety. I didn’t find it that sedative when I took it.
