is gabapentin (neurontin) considered abusable?
Like this post? Yes | No    

by doctors/psychs?

in other words, would they be more likely to prescribe gabapentin than a benodiazepine for anxiety to someone who might be prone to drug use?

ignoring the recreational aspect, everything about gabapentin sounds like it would be exactly something that would benefit me. in terms of day to day shit i'd rather be taking gaba than a benzo, and obviously asking for xanax or klonopin is pretty shady. would gabapentin also be unlikely to be prescribed if asked for/suggested (for good/honest reason)?

depends on the doctor i would say.my doc gave me klonopins and xanax cuz i asked for them and said i tried them and like them.just gave me adderall yesterday cuz i asked for it.but i also research the stuff online first so when i go in and ask for it i sound educated about it instead of sounding like some dumb idiot.

yeah it sounds like it's pretty much perfect, at least for what i'm looking for.

vapor, what happened with your friend? was the doctor weirded out?

and puffed, get me an appt with that doctor haha. although i guess with your diagnoses, they'd be much more lax about things than usual.

this was the summer of 08.

a good friend of mine i chilled with alot, he fronted some dude some weed.

the dude could only pay him back 100 dollars and gave him a (90-120?) bottle of xanax bars for the other hundred.

throughout that month he would occasionally show up at my house looking wasted as fuck, slurring his words and generally being nuts.

one day, in his hazy stupor, he went to a doctor asking for xanax.

the doctor was sketched and gave him neurontin instead.

then he was like, dude "i randomly got a perscription for these pills."

basically, yea.

LOL, so funny.

that's cool to know though, i figured it'd be less sketchy than asking for xanax or something like that. just wanted to hear if anyone had experience with this sorta thing.

Ive been wanting to get on the neurotin , but Im taking OC's so I dont think that would be a fair trade off with the dr.s

all i know is neurontin is abusable but its not not controlled.

ive had it before its almost like a cross between an opiate high and an e roll.

hmm really? you found it to be THAT good?

from what i'm reading it seems to have some pretty desirable anti-depressant and anti-anxiety effects, but not like benzos where you're in a fog... it really does seem to be very effective in the right direction.

edit: just found this on wiki which seems promising: "However, it is widely regarded as having little or no potential for misuse." cool. i might bring this up... haha if i wanted xanax it would be for abusing, which is why i feel weird trying to ask this... but i'm gonna do my research and come in with some decent things to say instead of just randomly asking. it does have some potential, i think...
