prescribed, initially, for neural pain stemming from shingles, now a greater branch of uses more liberally neurontin} is prescribed--several MDs use for ADD-type diagnosis; more commonly (and appropriately) prescribed for depression-related symptoms, often in conjunction with bipolar disorder. used here as a type of buffer for the transitional period between one's 'highest' moments of mania into deepest depressive state, can also be used successfully in conjunction with other mood stabilizers/SSRIs (very rarely a drug prescribed by itself)
