i take an snri and i take 1.5 mg of klonopin a day but i still have very bad anxiety and depression. ive heard GABApentin being a safer alternative for anxiety because it doesnt bind to the gaba receptors in as much of an addictive way as benzos do. ive been taking 200mg 3 times a day of it but i dont notice any affect?? ive only been on it 4 days now. is it suppose to work instantly?? or does it take 2 weeks to build up in your system?? as well ive heard that 3000mg is a safe dose and thats what it takes sometimes to help people with there anxiety. please share your experience with this drug for depression or anxiety. need more info i dont want to just give up on it without giving it a proper chance. please help

It can take up to 6 weeks for medication to kick in. I would wait until then to see if it has had any effect.

I just looked it up and it says it should work for anxiety within 3 weeks.
