Default Nausea on Gabapentin/ anything else for anxiety?

I am having serious nausea on Gabapentin and want to get off of it. I tried Buspar before this and it didn't help. I have Klonopin, but I just want to use it prn. I have had success just using it when I have a meltdown or when traveling, etc.

Anything else to try for anxiety besides benzos?

I am on gabapentin and klonopin. I find eating before taking gabapentin really helps with the nausea. I'm also taking klonopin in AM as well as PM and have no ill effects. I was on Buspar and and a more useless medication I've never tried. Anyway, I hope this helps. Good luck.

some people do well on lyrica even if gabapentin was a no go. there's some risk of dependency with Lyrica...I think its in Schedule V, as opposted Schedule IV for the benzodiazepines.

Hmm.. what do you think is the cause of your anxiety?

Before Lamictal, I was always stressed and agitated, and that stress/agitation led to anxiety (for me). Now I'm super laid back on a high dose of Lamictal and anxiety is a lot less than it was before.

Downside, though: if Lamictal is particularly activating for you, then it may increase your anxiety

I'm on 400mg of Lamictal
