    Hi Dawn,

    I take Pregablin 50 mg's a day at night and this is under the Gapapentin family.

    I also have 5 mgs of diazepam at night.

    When I was really low and depressed, my dr prescribed me Citalopram and I found myself bouncing off walls with the side effects so went onto Mitz instead.

    This may work better for you - it's worth getting a second opinon from another Dr. if you're not happy.

    Hi Dawn, I am taking Citalopram and Gaberpentin without any problems. I take 10mg of Citalopram because of the side effects, i wanted the lower dose, and i take 900mg of Gaberpentin. The Gaberpentin help me sleep as well which is great as i was an insomniac for years. Hope this helps.
