Hi

>I developed tolerance with Neurontin and couldn't go too high on the dose due to side effects

What sort of side effects?

>Any thoughts as to whether Lyrica will help with the panic attack symptoms

It might do, it does appear to be mildly anxiolytic.

>I'd like to get off clonazepam (0.5mg HS) for panic attacks that were induced (uncovered?) by a trial of Topamax.

You could reduce the dose to 0.375mg for a week or two, then 0.25mg, then 0.125mg. If you have difficulty tapering with this schedule you could switch from clonazepam to an equivalent dose of diazepam - which is easier to taper. The 2mg diazepam tabs are particularly useful for tapering.

>atenolol

Atenolol is not effective for anxiety apart from the cardiac symptoms eg. chest discomfort, palpitations, racing heart etc. Propranolol can relieve tremor and other symptoms too. Have you actually tried pindolol previously? How did you find it? Comparable to propranolol in efficacy? What were the side effects which forced you to switch to atenolol?

Regards

Ed
