You mentioned to me on a different thread that Clonidine would be better for weaning off Valium than Gabapentin.
I have a few questions & more things to share:
1. Does Clonidine require tapering; i.e., are there withdrawal symptoms from coming off of it?
2. Does Clonidine meant to treat anxiety?
3. I've been taking 600 mg of Gabapentin for the last month to assist with my taper from Valium. I'm currently at 7 mg of Valium and tapering relatively slowly (from 11 mg at the beginning of the year). I'm also on 60 mg of Cymbalta and 200 mg of Wellbutrin, which I've been taking for depression for the last year. But in the last 2 weeks I've experienced strong headaches and insomnia. Also, I don't feel it is that effective at treating the anxiety. At first, I thought it did, but now I think it's marginal.
Thank you again for your observations on this OT subject.
