I am a new member to the group, and I was wondering if anyone in the
newsgroup has used Neurontin for PTSD.  I would welcome any information
anyone has on this subject.  Thanks.

One doctor prescribed Neurontin for my partial seizures. Other doctors 
say it's no good for seizures, but only for nerve pain. However, I 
haven't heard anyone talk about using it for PTSD. You might ask your 
pharmacist--they seem to know more about the uses than most doctors.

Yes, I became violently ill. 
As with any medication ... it affects everyone differently and may not
affect
you in that way.
Good luck.

Scott

I've never taken Neurontin but I am taking Topomax which is also an
anti-seizure medication.  I don't know if they are in the same class
of anti-seizure med but the topomax has been very effective against
nightmares, flashbacks, intrusive thoughts and weight gain.

Did your doctor tell you what symptoms it was prescribed for?  The use
of anti-seizure meds for PTSD is new and I haven't heard of any other
anti-seizure meds being used or used as widely as Topomax yet, so I'm
curious to see if any others are as effective.

Posting to the top...

Yes, the plan was to address some of the PTSD symptoms.  I have
frequent
anxiety, as well as being very sensitive to noise and light.  The
symptoms
have made sleeping very difficult.  My hope is that this medicine will
help
keep me asleep the entire night.  I've been going to bed around 11:00
p.m.
each night, and waking up at 3:00 and 4:00 in the morning and not being
able
to fall back asleep.  Sleep would be nice.
