Neurontin for Insomnia?

Hi,

I am on zoloft, abilify and neurontin
for my depression/anxiety.  The zoloft
and abilify completely have my depression
under control.  I take the neurontin at
night to help with sleep and it works
great but I dont like taking meds just to
sleep.  I know I need to check with my
doctor but is there anything otc that is
safe for insomnia that will not effect
my zoloft?  I would really like to be able
to skip the nighttime meds but if I do, I
am fully awake all night.  Thanks for any
suggestions,

best wishes,

Well Neurontin is prescribed for a lot of things from pain to mood stabilization.  I would ask the dr before coming off of it just in case he is giving it to you for the mood stabilization properties.  Either way consult with your dr before doming off of it.
