No, I never tried a benzo before Neurontin. I'm sure the Celexa is helping *somewhat* with confidence and social ease, but I was on Celexa alone for months and still felt anxiety -- then, with Neurontin, I just felt a new sense of calm and ease. And yes, confidence -- I remember sitting in a staff meeting and realizing I wasn't suffering from the usual anxiety that I was going to "get in trouble" at work. I had always felt I was doing something wrong and would get found out -- that I wasn't performing up to par. This time I noticed my attitude was, "i know I'm doing a grea job. I have nothing to fear. If they don't like me for some reason screw them; i can find another job". If you know what I mean.

My doctor prescribed it for my anxiety (a symptom of my depression), sleep problems (ditto), and mood swings (ditto). I like it very much. It has a very nice calming effect. I feel confident in social situations that used to make me very nervous.
