Neurontin for anxiety?

Hi,

I am currently taking Neurontin along with
Zoloft and Abilify for depression with anxiety.
My pdoc says the Neurontin is good for
anxiety but I take it before bed and it puts
me to sleep.  I know if has a half-life of 5-7
hours so my question is:  Am I sleeping
through the anixety benefit?  If so I would
like to quit taking it to reduce my number
of meds.  

Thanks for any input.

best wishes,

It is good for your anxiety because you sleep better. Sleeping plays a big part in anxiety and depression. I would keep taking it.
