Pretty simple: Neurontin (gabapentin) is not metabolized. It is eliminated by the kidneys. Because the elimination of Neurontin (gabapentin) is entirely renal, patients with renal insufficiency usually need lower dosages and less frequent dosing. Side effects of Neurontin (gabapentin) are generally mild to moderate and transient. The most commonly reported dose-related side effects are: drowsiness dizziness fatigue.
