    Gabapentin for anxiety
    cammi70 posted:
    A doctor prescribed gabapentin for anxiety. Took a tiny dose last year and had side effects. I am so frustrated with ocd, depression, and PMS but I don't know if I want to try this or just stick with the supplements.
    Support would be very appreciated.

    Hi Cammi70,

    Here is the information that I could find on gabapentin on WebMD.

    Also if you check out gabapentin in the WebMD Drugs & Supplements center , there are over 1,600 user reviews. Reviews from people who have used the drug might give you a better idea on how to proceed. However, please keep an open line of communication with your doctor about any decisions that you make regarding your treatment.

    You are on the right track by getting treatment for your anxiety. Please come back and update us with what you decide to do.
