Re: nuerontin

Its different for all people i took it from 16-19 yrs. old. I am 19 still. Anyway. It did well for about a year. Then i was back to my same old Bipolar ways. No one could control what i did. It was my own fault.
Everyone is different(i have to stress that)
I was up to 3,600 mg. Before i totally dropped it, after a month my mood was better, and i relaized it was more of an anxiety problem and Neurontin was not the med for me.

Re: nuerontin

My boyfriend is on neurontin as well as celexa. He's been on the combo for about three weeks and it has made a huge difference in his life. He has suffered less anxiety and has been able to control his temper better. Before, we got into awful screaming matches almost every night and we've had a few disagreements as of late and none of them have turned into the knock-down, drag-out fights we used to have.

I also suffer anxiety, but I'm taking Serzone daily and Valium as needed. It works quite well for me. The Serzone is supposed to help with my anxiety in the long run, bt the Valium is quite effective when I start to feel anxiety coming on.

I hope everything works out for you!
