Gabapentin for pain and anxiety
I was wrong it what I thought it was. It is actually called Gabapentin and I have heard mixed reviews so I’m hesitant.

@jadillow – I took gabapentin for about 7 weeks for postherpetic neuralgia after having shingles. It helped with the constant pain/tingling feeling. I recall no side effects whatsoever and no problems tapering off.
I've been on gabapenton for anxiety for a while now. I'm also on a few other medications and just added this one in for anxiety so I can only comment on the anxiety part of it which it does help with for me
