I've read a couple of studies on the use of Neurontin
as a withdrawal
aid and the results are inconclusive at best. It seems to be hit or miss with many more misses than hits. However, because of the weird brain chemistry that us addicts have, I can see how it could be helpful for some people. It can have a sedating effect, and I've seen it used as an add on drug for anxiety. I will say a couple of cautions, though. First, if you have Bipolar Disorder, I'd avoid it unless your doctor knows.
