I'm confused myself! Before stopping gabapentin suddenly last March, I was having to pay full price
for it. That was one of the reasons I wanted to stop. My amputee doc said it was ok to just stop taking it without weaning, as it's supposed to be a non-addictive drug. After a week of being off it, that's when this panic attack hit me, and anxiety, jitters, all that horror set in and depression, deepest, darkest, most awful despair, followed. My GP referred me to a psych who put me on pristiq.
