Neurontin, Welbutrin, And Zoloft For Ptsd


Recommended Posts

Hi all:

I'm taking neurontin, welbutrin, and zoloft for ptsd.

My doctor says that welbutrin and zoloft should make me feel awake.

But, I think that the neurontin is making me tired.

Any thoughts??

Besides Xanax Neurontin saved me from anxiety attacks and deep depression. If its something else I just don't understand it.

I hardly sleep at all.

I take my Welbutrin every morning.

I've not noticed that it makes me feel "awake", of course I do take it with my coffee each morning...........

It does, however, make me want to use a smaller caliber firearm on my "stressors".

heh-heh!

Your right the Gabapentin ( Neurontin) is making you tired. What do you know about this drug?

It made me a complete dead beat.

May I suggest you do a search and type in Neurontin and you will be surprised too see what it says. Then you may want to consider a different medication. This medicine is being recalled due to its link to suicidal thoughts and attempts. The attorneys are already lining up, Like circling sharks.

Neurotin is amutlifacted medication principally used for epilespy and seizure disorder. But Gabapentin may also be used to treat other nerve pain conditions (e.g., diabetic neuropathy, peripheral neuropathy, trigeminal neuralgia).

lt is also used for extreme discomfort in calves when sitting or lying down, "change of life" signs, pain originating from a nerve, pain following an operation, involuntary quivering. One of the side effects if fatigue.

  • How to get your questions answered...

    question-001.jpeg

    All VA Claims questions should be posted on our forums. Read the forums without registering, to post you must register it’s free. Register for a free account.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery” instead of ‘I have a question’.
    2. Knowledgable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title. I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one huge, rambling introduction or story. Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.

    Leading to:

    Post clear questions and then give background info on them.

    Examples:

    • A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine but claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
    • B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • I was involved in traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?

    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial from your claim?” etc.

    Note:

    Your firsts posts on the board may be delayed before they show up, as they are reviewed, this process does not take long and the review requirement will be removed usually by the 6th post, though we reserve the right to keep anyone on moderator preview.

    This process allows us to remove spam and other junk posts before they hit the board. We want to keep the focus on VA Claims and this helps us do that.
