Brief Answer:
one of the off label/not typical uses, can be used for this reason

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is an off label use. This means that it is not a typical/usual reason for its use, but it can be used for this reason if needed.

It is typically used for epilepsy or nerve related pain (neuralgia) but it also has a number of off label uses eg insomina, anxiety, mood disorders not responding to other medication, restless leg syndrome..

It may be able to help with anxiety in some persons

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
