Sounds like: Sounds like this patient's psychiatrist would like to see the patient again soon, because Prozac (fluoxetine) + off-label use of Gabapentin does not seem to be having its desired effect. Hopefully this patient is also in psychotherapy as well -- many ways to deal with anxiety can be learned there.
