Will Neurontin show up in a urine lab drug test if so how long will it be there?

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!

dude no offense but you have no clue what you're talking about. there is no test for PCP or LSD. the only way they can test for LSD is through a spinal tap and that is illegal. Why dont you do some research before you start answering questions that you dont know the answer to.

I take a drug test every week, and they use a 10 panel and send it to the lab. The panel test tests for pcp.\lsd. The test also tests for gabipenten(probably spelled wrong) the generic for Neurontin. I have never had a spinal, that's probably one way to tell, but not the only one. My friend Chris has to take a regular 13 panel drug test I need to know wether Neurontin will be on his test or not.

Will not show any false positive unless you talking something else

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.

I agree with you

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!

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!
