Neurontin (gabapentin) is not subject to the Controlled Substances Act.
Technically no. Prescription only yes. Hope this helps.
No it is not classified as a controlled substance.
But if the reason you are asking is you are planning on stopping the medication. You will need to taper off of it under a physicians care as you can have side effects stopping it all together suddenly.
I've got to ask, why did you think to ask that? I get curious when others think of some of the questions they do. Controlled drugs are drugs that are addictive. Nothing about gabapentin is addicting.
In Kentucky starting July 1, 2017 Gabapentin will be a Schedule 5 Controlled Substance.
Yes. In the State of Kentucky, on July 1st, 2017, This drug became a controlled substance. My husband takes it for neuropathy and restless leg due to severe Diabetes. I had to show I.D. today to pick up his prescription. I am not sure why it is considered a controlled substance.
