      I take it for my Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I have IBS, along with GAD.

        @Chesbro99 me too. I take Gabapentin for arthritis which has caused cervical spondylitis in my c4 & c5. It doesn't do anything for my anxiety, I take 40mg Citalopram for that but just feel I'm getting worse 🙃

Based on the experiences shared, some individuals have found gabapentin helpful for managing their anxiety. One person mentioned that it has been a "miracle" for their Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD), significantly improving their mood and eliminating chest pain. Another individual reported that gabapentin helped reduce their Xanax dosage from 8mg to 2-3mg per day. However, others have noted that its effectiveness can decrease over time due to the body building up a tolerance. It's important to discuss any concerns or questions with your healthcare provider.
