> Katia,
> Neurontin has received bad press because of a story that made headlines a few months ago about a bipolar kid who killed himself. Even though neurontin was never directly implicated, it scared many doctors. It isn't always effective, but when it works, it works very well. Since you have some on hand and you're having a difficult time withdrawing from Zoloft you might consider giving it a try. You could start slow with 300mg twice a day first week, three times a day second and titrate up to 2-3 tabs three times a day. If it works you'll know it within a few days. If it doesn't, you'll also know. Keep a journal or rate your mood and write it on a calendar since our memories aren't very objective.
> Pardon me for being cynical, but is this doctor the same clueless doc you referred to earlier? If so, why would you not question anything he/she has to say?

no it wasn't my pdoc, but my therapist. She was just commenting on what she had heard and definitely prefaced it by saying that was not an expert in the field and it was more along the lines that she was wanting me to proceed with caution and question the advice from this board. She was only trying to take care of me - my best interest in mind. I do question things, believe me. it's just that I'm so exhausted with taking the wrong meds and then having to go through terrible w/drawals.
I also don't have enough of it (neurontin) to take up to the levels you recommend. I'm just waiting this out until I can find the right doc.

I can relate to the rage! If anything the rage has certainly allowed me to stand up for myself and voice some much needed things!
