yes, oxycontin is a narcotic and in completely different category than neurontin (gabapentin) and lyrica. however, i had side effects from neurontin like dizziness, feeling high ect, but i took really high doses. abandoned it for lyrica.

I don't believe they are in the same category. If your allergic to oxycodone I believe your safe to take gabapentin.. How ever it's not as effective. My husband and my father in-law both take gabapentin
