> Thanks, Mitch.
> I'm not on a benzo at the moment, just Prozac. My pdoc has been trying all of the SSRI's by themselves before she adds anything. So Neurontin is the first thing she has suggested as an add-on. I have not asked about benzos (I've heard that Klonopin is very good), but I suspect she may be hesitant to use one as the next 'line of defense.'

I have problems with Prozac and Zoloft keeping me awake at nite, and what happens more often-I keep waking up/falling off over and over and I never get rested enough and like you I am dragging the next day. You might benefit from a single dose of Neurontin at bedtime (say 300mg). If you sleep better (I do), then you will have more energy the next day.

good luck,
