Medical director : The lab director is presumably a pathologist and unless he/she is a total jackass, you can get a letter about gabapentin not being a drug of abuse and that it is usually not tested for, that it may have been in a quacky herbal remedy you took, and that if the presence was not confirmed by a second test using a different principle, no action can lawfully be taken against you.
