I'm starting Gabapentin today and I'm extremely anxious about starting a new medication. I'm taking sertaline 125 mg but it's not completely doing the trick. I suffer from PTSD, severe depression, anxiety and a panic disorder. Can someone tell me how this medication has helped you for anxiety and panic?
Hi, Amanda! I've had excellent results with other medications so I've never taken gabapentin myself for depression/anxiety but these user reviews might be helpful to you:
PS, since you're only on a mid-range dose of sertraline you might ask your doctor about a dosage adjustment.
Good luck and best wishes, Wildcat
Gabapentin has never helped me for anxiety. I take Klonopin, and I also, among other meds, take Zoloft. These, in
combination with my Celexa, Seroquel and one 300 mg Gaba. help immensely. I should be taking 600 mg of Gaba.
however, it made me lose my short term memory and I gained many, many pounds.
