Re: gabitril for depression

Gabitril is an anti-seizure med. It is used off-label for many other things.
Have you tried other anti-depressants to no avail. I would think Gabitril would be a last choice. It comes with many side effects and to use merely for depression is unusual if you ask me. Unless you have seizures and/or nerve pain as well?

Re: gabitril for depression

well, in that case, this med could be appropriate and helpful. It may help with the chrnic pain and axt as a mood stabilizer as well. Good luck to you.
