Neurontin (gabapentin): For my patients, if the leg pain at night appears to be nerve related pain, I will typically try gabapentin (Neurontin) for treatment. Diazepam can be used as a muscle relaxant, but can create issues with dependency.

If attempting to get off oxycodone, it's a good idea to avoid any other drugs with addictive potential like diazepam.
