Hey.. so I was prescribed gabapentin years ago, and now I’m seeing a pain management doc and will be tested this Saturday. I took a gabapentin 300mg last night & one tonight just to help me sleep. I didn’t even think about it showing up or being tested for.. I hate the way it makes me feel so I can’t imagine why anyone would abuse it. But then again I can’t imagine why people abuse a lot of things. Anyway.. if I don’t take anymore should I be good? I read somewhere that it’s out of your system 3 days after taking last??? Anyone know? Thanks!
I take Neurontin and have for years and it has never caused a false positive anything in a drug screen. My employer does random drug screens so often that with 725 employees we are pretty much tested at least three times a year each!
Neurontin should not show up as a false positive for benzo. The chemical structure is sigificantly different than that of benzos. It is becoming more commonly tested for these days though since more and more people are using this medication recreationally.
yes it will.I have first hand been a user of gabapentins and they will show up as a false positive for lsd.I had to stop taking them.
dont get to cocky there toxic .. The myth that LSD is in your spinal fluid is infact that a myth.
Yes. It can cause false positives. If you're required to take Neurontin, take your prescription with you the day of testing. I don't know what it will show up as, but I suspect it might appear under the PCP/LSD or stimulant type drug band of most testing kits. (But, I could be wrong on that.) It shouldn't show up as weed or opiates. How long, I think, would depend on how long you've been taking it. Anywhere from 3 days to 3 weeks. If your employer has a problem with that, get a note from your MD stating the cause of a false positive. BTW, I had a false positive and it's a scary day in paradise! Best wishes for a clean stream, Goodnewsdoc
