All I've ever seen in neurontin is capsule form. They can be opened and put in water or on something like pudding. If they are immediate release neurontin they can be crushed, if they are long acting they can't.

Hi Mnbn, kaismama has given you a great answer.
The reason for NOT crushing any long acting or extended release (E.R. on vial label, please check) tablet is because all of the medication is released into your body at the same time, negating the ER part of the medication. This can cause an overdose, please check with your pharmacist on this question!
Best wishes to you
