It would not help or relieve muscle spasm directly. Neurontin or its generic form Gabapentin is used for neuropathy or nerve pain caused by diabeties or other causes, it is also an anti seizure medication which may make you believe it may help with muscle spasms, but it does not directly act that way with one specific muscle spasm. It is also often used for Fibromyalgia patients believing that their pain is due to an inflammation of nerve pathways. I believe a muscle relaxer would best serve you for any muscle spasms you maybe experiencing. Hope this helps and good luck!
