I have been on Gabapentin for about a year and recently I've experienced severe depression and crying spells throughout the day. I've had paranoia and confusion at night. I stopped taking the medication and my symptoms have stopped, but now I'm having a hard time staying asleep at night because my back pain is so severe. I only get 4- 10mg Norco's a day for pain, so it's hard to stretch out 3 during the day and 1 at night, and even when I do, it doesn't help with pain all night. I've read that Lyrica and Topamax are similar to Gabapentin. Curious about everyone's experiences with them and what side effects I should expect.
