Neurontin should only be taken during pregnancy if the benefit to the mother outweighs the risk to the baby.
Neurontin has been assigned to the FDA pregnancy category C - this means that animal studies have shown evidence of toxicity but there are no studies in humans.
Talk with your doctor about your specific risks and benefits.

Hi! I totally agree with Suzanne about being on the Neurontin while pregnant. I have been taking for going on 13 years the max dose for seizures and Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, but I've never or have even been pregnant... I will add this... Because of all of My various health problems I go to one doctor who knows My body from the inside and out, and he also happens to be the coroner of the town to make a lil ha-ha there, LOL! But anyways, I still sometimes, rarely, but sometimes get second opinion if it's serious! I was just going to say that I'd not only get Your regular OB/GYN's opinion, but also a second one from another OB/GYN, and possibly opinions from Neurologists, Anesthesiologists (sp), or even maybe a Pain Management. I just say that because Neurontin is used to treat a variety of disorders, is why I threw those suggestions out there.
