Hello all,

I’ve been struggling for the last 3 years with anxiety and depression, usually cycling between the two over the course of a week.

Most recent psych started me on lamictal, as she’s thought my issues were more “mood disorder” based.

I’m currently at 100mg nightly, as well as gabapentin 100mg 3 times a day. I think I’ve seen some improvement, but I still struggle with breakthrough.

I wonder if I should go up, or if this med isn’t for me.

Gabapentin

Lamotrigine

Clonazepam

    Keep open dialog w Dr. remember you are all part of the same team. I have had good results w Lamictal but have not tried gabapentin. I take my Lamictal 150 X 2 daily with Prozac in 150 in a.m. and serequil 200 p.m. Clonazapam 1mg prn.

    Be very careful going up on Gabapentin, as mine only made me worse (I took 600 morning, 600 evening, 900 bed). And now that I am weaning off of it, I feel like someone threw me into terrible mental health hell. But Gab works different for everyone.

    I was on 125 MG lamictal when I started seeing my new psych (switched from child to adult psychology) and was told 125 is a very low dose for an adult, I think 200 is average so definitely possible to go up on that one. I'm not familiar with Gabapenten. I would definitely communicate what you are thinking/feeling with your psych until you find the right balance of medications and doses
