Sorry Chad2, but I unfortunately don't have too much personal experience with the meds you listed. From what I hear from some of the Psychiatrists I have rotated with, Buspar is essentially "about as effective as water" in their opinion. But I've heard the same said about Neurontin, so I might take some of these doc's opinions with a grain of salt.

As for Gabatril, I'll let you know in the next couple of weeks, as I've just had it prescribed to me. I attended a Psychiatry conference a few months back (put on by the Cephalon reps I might add), at which the topic was Gabatril and its effectiveness in generalized anxiety disorder. The physician had nothing but wonderful things to say about it. In a few of his own small clinical trials, he reported some very positive results with few side effects. But the key, he pointed out, was the fact that it must be taken in FAR lower dosages than those used in the adjunctive treatment for epilepsy. He's been using between 4 and 8mg (rarely up to 12 mg) in his studies, and advising that it be taken before a meal to minimize the nausea and dizziness. I got the feeling he was using it religiously himself!

I'll be trying it in the next few days, so I'll keep you up-to-date with my results. I'm also trying Neurontin for the first time, but will leave this for after my Gabatril trial. I'm looking for something to take for maintenance during Klonopin/Provigil holidays. We'll see!

Good luck!
