    Dear Cactus Lil,
    In another post, you mentioned getting the right med to balance brain chemistry.
    What meds are you talking about, other than Klonopin and Neurontin?
    From what I've read, we have a GABA deficiency, and Neurontin or the new Pregabalin (once it's available) would be the only ones to address this problem.
    I ask because Klonopin made me stop breathing, and I am now on Neurontin. I am not even at the effective dose yet, and am already turning into a zombie.
    I have read the side-effect profiles of other seizure drugs and feel they are too risky,ie. Tegretol, Depakote and Lithium. Also, as far as I know, none of them increases GABA.
    I know you have a lot of experience with this, so any comments are appreciated. Thanks
    Klutzo

    My first bump actually sent the post down instead of up. So, here goes.

    Guess I'll give up if this bump doesn't get an answer.
