I am taking 1,800 mg of Neurontin per day. I am taking it for anxiety and panic. It seemed to work well for several weeks, but now it seems to be causing anxiety and panic. If it caused you anxiety and panic, did the anxiety and panic go away? If so, how long did it take for the anxiety and panic to go away? Lastly, did it resume treating anxiety and panic? Thanks.
This is something you would want to speak with the prescribing doctor about. Neurontin isn't exactly like an SSRI antidepressant in which it takes up to 6 weeks before any judgements can be made about its effectiveness and side effects.
I've seen some good results with Neurontin being used to treat anxiety...this MAY just be a temporary side effect, or it just may not be for you, it's hard to say. Again, it's something I would recommend talking with your doc about. Maybe it's worth it to stick it out a little longer.
