Yes. Neurontin is a brand name for gabapentin capsules, so the active ingredient is gabapentin.
There are many gabapentin products available some are generics that are labelled as gabapentin and others use brand names such as Gralise, Horizant, Neurontin but they all contain the active ingredient of gabapentin.
Yes it is. To keep your pain in check take as prescribed by doctor. When I first started I did not think it was helping. I went out of town and chose not to take them. I then realized how much they were helping I have been able to cut my pain medication in half.
Yes, gabapentin is the generic name for neurontin. Gabapentin's name is derived from the word "gaba" which is the chemical in your brain that is improved by this medication. Valium works by improving the brain's "gaba" chemicals also.
yes it is its just the generic name for it. hope you feel better
Yes. It's the generic version.
I've been on neurontin 400mg 3x a day for years... I don't think it does anything for me.
I am Combat Veteran with PTSD. I was prescribed Gabapentin 300mg to help relax. I also have Lumbar Stenosis (lower back pain). my Doc told me to take one as needed and relax. I'm also using Gabapentin to help me with Marijuana withdraws. So far it seams to be OK.
so the question ( Is Gabapentin 300mg capsules actually Neurontin?) I would say yes, and it seams to be working.
Both same thing as is Lyrica. You can look up ANY drug and get complete details on web site " drugs.com " .
Yes it is but I take it with other pain meds just taking Neurontin doesn't do a thing for me and I take 3600 mg a day
Yes, Gabapentin is generic for Neurontin. Personally I can't stand how it makes me feel except for it seems to work occasionally but intake 600 mg. 3times a day. I feel for you as a sufferer of neuropathy. It really s--- s!
Yes, Neurontin is Gabapentin. It is used for seizures, pain and as a mood stabilize. At the present time the highest dosages 4800 mgs daily usually a higher dose before sleep. I have been on it for 4 wks and have not gotten use to the side effects it gives me a low grade headache all day. I also feel hung over and alittle drunk all day.
I was prescribed Gabapentin 300 mg last night by my dr. for headaches. I took one at 9 pm, slept straight through the night, and got up this morning at 6:15. I felt like a drunk ... couldn't walk straight and had blurry vision. My prescription says I can take this 3 times a day. I wouldn't be able to function if I took it that often. I'm really having a hard time typing this and I'm actually scared to drive to work this morning. I sent an email to my dr. office and I threw the bottle in my drawer with the other meds that didn't agree with me.
Yes Gabapentin 300mg (and 600mg) are both generic for Neurontin.
I have had a chronic pain problem for 13 years, after breaking my neck and back in a head-on collision. I have had many drugs prescribed for chronic pain and the Gabapentin actually works better than any narcotics ever did.
We came to realize nerve damage was causing the pain.
Yes it is i take it for sciatic nerve pain and pain in my feet
I am taking 900 mgs twice a day and 1200 mgs at bedtime. It makes me tired but I think it helps alot because I hurt before I take them in the morning. They help me sleep too when I am sore at night. My pain is from two cervical fusions and a facet cyst in L4/5. Good luck!
