I ve stopped alcohol 5 weeks ago. A Dr. put me on neurontin. Currently I m on 100 mg 3xday. I feel very tired all the time and depressed. I m already on 20 mg daily of Lexapro. Is it likely that the neurontin is increasing my depression and tiredness?
Yes. Gabapentin can cause changes in mood and may trigger depressive episodes, as well as compulsive thoughts. Withdrawal can also trigger mood episodes and other mental health problems, including anxiety and suicidal ideation.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
