Anyone ever been on gabapentin? It's an anti convulsant & my med mgr thinks it might help with the shakes. I always try to find out whatever I can about any new med, including others experiences. I know everyone is different, but I like to get an idea what its like.
Yes Im on it and have been for 3 or 4 years at least. I take the maximum dose : its suppose to help anxiety and was prescribed for me by my primary doc for the prevention of migraines. It has done the trick. I don't know if it has helped the anxiety or not??
It's also called nuerotin......I think it would be a good idea to try it. My own 2 cents
I have actually recently been put on it. It was intended to replace my Klonopin but I've had trouble sleeping without it, so they put me back on it. I've had some trouble with dry mouth, but other than that, things are okay. I'm going to do my homework about it and am hoping with an increase of the gabapentin, I will be able to go off about four of my other meds. Hopefully.
