Anti-Depressants: Waste of time, drink instead. If you can't drink contemplate suicide.
Amphetamines: Very good, would recommend if you're bored, have difficulty concentrating and/or depressed. Work much better than anti-depressants for depression.
Opioids: Good stuff, don't do too many or risk joining the ranks of the homeless.
Anti-nausea: waste of time unless you're chronically nausea and still may be a waste of time.
Benzos: Strongly recommend, work great for depression, mix well with amphetamines in creating balanced high.
do people actually have fun with gabapentin
i don't think it's particularly recreational unless high doses, which is only a mild high that rapidly builds tolerance and leads to disruptive withdrawal. as you said, for broadly defined pain it's not even that useful, but if you've ever have the inside of your skull itch from shingles it may provide some relief.
this isn't medical advice; but the only other use i found is for emergency anti-drunkenness. it's not really sobriety but helps with physical drunkenness (staggering etc), which can be useful in some situations like dealing with a useless and uncooperative large friend that needs to be taken to safety.
an important caveat is that it will wear off before alcohol, so drinking more after having taken it will invariably lead to disaster or at least injury, as the tipping point back into increased blood-brain alcohol content is sudden and without warning.
edit: watch out for loss of memory retention/formation if you're on it long term. i imagine many elderly that are on this have their symptoms mistaken for alzheimers/dementia
