My Psychiatrist prescribed me this medication for my OCD and anxiety. He said it works right away. I have been on this medication for three weeks. I started at 100 MG 3 times a day. Now I am at 600 MG 3 times a day. My doctor is trying to find the right dosage for me. He told me I should know right away. But I am wondering and want to get some suggestions on if I would know right away? Or would I give it some time?
I've been prescribed Gabapentin AKA Neurotin, for nearly 3 months now. My dr prescribed it as an extra med that can help work with some of my other Rx's to get the most DESIRED result, which being a much reduced amount of anxiety. To be honest, I'm on 5 diff meds currently and I couldn't tell you if the Neurotin is the sole one to give credit to because it's taken along time to get my meds just right with a tweak here or there but stick with it, give it 3 total months and if you feel the same way then discuss with you're doctor about going a diff direction. Hopefully this helps u.
For me personally, I've been started at 300 mg 3x day for nearly three months now. My psych dr I believe said that it helps with the Remeron I take at night but also helps with my EVERYDAY anxiety, which she plans to drop my klonopin dosage from currently 1mg 2x day , to .5mg 2x day but I really do not want my klonopin to get cut because it helps so much but to be completely honest, I'd rather be on something like XANAX 1 mg / 3x day as needed. But the NEUROTIN I truly do believe has helped me as an addition to all the meds I'm on but it takes time to really take effect (4-6 weeks) but if you're really wanting to get the best of the neurotin, do not go more then 12 hours in between any does, I dont know y that's such a big thing but my dr. Insisted upon it so I agreed. Hopefully, my rambling helped you out on some way. One negative about Neurotin, at least from my p.o.v. Is that a side effect is rolling of eyes, I notice also that when you take it on an empty stomach, I become very light headed and uncoordinated when I take my 45mg Remeron w/ 1mg Klonopin.
