My psychiatrst prescribed this drug along with Lexapro. Four tabs twice daily. I felt like getting out of my own skin or jumping out of a window. Obviously, this drug should noy be used to treat depression...

My Psychiatrist has me on a very low dose for bipolar symptoms and it has effectively controlled my mood. But I felt like I was on "Speed" at first and had to take it in the morning rather than at night as prescribed. I find it helps me control my weight also. I only take 3 mg per day.

I take Gabitril with several other drugs for chronic major depression. It works great as part of a cocktail with Lexapro, Wellbutrin, Trazadone, and Abilify. It's well worth a try.

I was first prescribed Gabitril by a Neurologist for nerve pain in my extremities, especially my feet, caused by Fibromyalgia, or more accurately "unknown" etiology. I have tried other meds from time to time, but none of them work as well as the Gabitril does. I had a bad reaction to Neurontin, so my Neurologist switched me to Gabitril approximately 10 years ago, and I now take 12 mg. every twelve hours gratefully.

I have suffered with insomnia for years. In the last several months saw a sleep doctor for my disorder. He put me Gabitril 4mg, and then I increased up to 12mg. For the last several months I was taking Trazadone, Ambien, and Gabitril at bedtime for my insomnia. It was a dream come true, was able to sleep though the night, woke up in the morning in a great mood for 3 months. Just in the last month, I have suffered from extreme memory loss, no short term memory, feels like my head is in a cloud, nausea all day long, and tired all the time. I discontinued the Ambien, went from Gabitril 12mg, to 6mg, then to 4mg, and still having the same side effects. Now I discontinued Gabitril all together with hope of getting rid of this medicine head I feel 24 hours/7 days a week. Want to be back to normal and get this medication out of my system.
