Yes. It can cause false positives. If you're required to take Neurontin, take your prescription with you the day of testing. I don't know what it will show up as, but I suspect it might appear under the PCP/LSD or stimulant type drug band of most testing kits. (But, I could be wrong on that.) It shouldn't show up as weed or opiates. How long, I think, would depend on how long you've been taking it. Anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks. If your employer has a problem with that, get a note from your MD stating the cause of a false positive. BTW, I had a false positive and it's a scary day in paradise!
