> > I've been taking Neurontin (Gabapentin), Klonopin, Amitriptyline (Elavil), Nefazodone (Serzone), and Adderall, with Lorazepam (Ativan)as needed. My p-doc says that this is a safe combo, although, the Lorazepam taken too close to the Neurontin and Klonopin seems to induce quite an urge to sleep. When first initiating this med-combo, there seems to be a lag in reaction times, and an overall "slowing" of the senses, but this faded fairly quickly for me.

Dear Dove,

When I first read this, I couldn't think of what sort of condition(s) you were treating. It's a hell of a cocktail. However, after rereading it several times, I came to the inescapable conclusion that I still had no clue. :-)

General anxiety disorder, major depression, and ADD? Maybe a hint of fibromyalgia? (I really hedged my bets here).


> Anyone have any comments on this med combo: Neurontin, Adderall, Serzone, Amitriptyline, Klonopin, Ativan (as needed), and the latest addition of 10 mgs of Prozac per day?

> I know I should probably be looking to discontinue a few of these meds, and I'm positive that my p-doc would approve as long as I don't remove the Neurontin, but what, when, and how? Especially in light of the new Prozac addition, which is suppose to help my up and down female cycle. My p-doc is very open-minded and receptive, particularily when compared to most of the other small town doc's, but he doesn't seem to know much about the drug-to-drug interactions.

I would be interested to know what your current diagnoses are so as to be able to give you some input, should I have any.

BTW - Thanks.
