I did some additional research and found this information. It did raise some concern as it mentions "blood glucose fluctuation." This was provided by the clinical trials results.

"In addition to the adverse experiences reported during clinical testing of Neurontin, the following adverse experiences have been reported in patients receiving marketed Neurontin. These adverse experiences have not been listed above and data are insufficient to support an estimate of their incidence or to establish causation. The listing is alphabetized: angioedema, blood glucose fluctuation, breast hypertrophy, erythema multiforme, elevated liver function tests, fever, hyponatremia, jaundice, movement disorder, Stevens-Johnson syndrome.

Adverse events following the abrupt discontinuation of gabapentin have also been reported. The most frequently reported events were anxiety, insomnia, nausea, pain and sweating."

Most of the information available is: Neurontin (Gabapentin) a prescription med is a medication commonly used to treat pain associated with shingles and partial seizures in people with epilepsy. The drug is believed to work by affecting calcium channels in the brain, but its full effects are not known. Side effects are:dizziness, drowsiness, and problems with coordination.

As suggested, please contact the manufacturer, hope this helps?
