Re: Klonopin vs. Neurontin not exactly

I also find that Klonopin (1 mg/day) helps me think more clearly. Before using it, anxiety interfered tremendously with my cognitive processes and sleep, and induced severe depression on a regular basis. When I started it, I had a week or two of mild sedation etc., then the side effects totally of K disappeared and only the benefits have remained.

I take Neurontin as well (1200 mg/day) and really don't think it does much at all (for me -- YMMV etc.). The first couple of times I took it I experienced a pleasant, "floaty" high, and since then I've felt nothing. My pdoc suggests I stay on it because it may add "background" stability, but honestly, I don't think it has any effect any more, good or bad. Klonopin is definitely the driving force, and for me is a excellent med, with no negatives after almost 2 yrs of use at the same dose.
