> > I finally discovered the new med I mentioned before. It does not have a trade name, but the generic is PREGABALIN. According to an artcile in the American Journal of Psychiatry, in a double-blind study, pts. on 600 mgs. of this med reported the same anti-anxiety effects as those on 6 mgs. of Ativan. And supposedly, it is not addicative. Of course, this is just one study, but if anyone has any further info, please post.

Hi Cyber, it is supposed to be a refined version of gabapentin-whatever that means. The dose level seems much lower than that typically used for gabapentin so perhaps it is a more effective-potent agent. Wonder what its half-life is...
