> Kat I hate to change the subject. First congrats on BD!!!. Now you say you are tolerant to benzos but gabapentin works. How did you do the switch? And I'm no sure what you mean by stays with you? Phillipa

Hi Phillipa, I hope you are well.

First, it's the tolerance to benzos that stays with me. I don't suffer withdrawal when I stop them; my level of tolerance just stays at the same level that it was at when I stopped taking the benzos. So now, it would probably take practically a whole bottle of piills for me to feel any effect from a benzo (I'm exaggerating just a bit on that lol).

As far as switching from benzos to gabapentin, I just switched. I stopped taking the benzos, which weren't working anyways, and began taking gabapentin. Of course, when I started gaba, it was at a much lower dose, which worked great, but the only unhappy thing about gaba (to me) is that tolerance builds up very rapidly.

Hope that info helps. Take care!
Kat
