Impossible to know: Synthetic marijuana could be any chemical and/or herb -- so it's impossible to know how long it remains in your urine without knowing specifically what you've consumed. Then, lab standards would have to be developed. Synthetic marijuana is a designer drug -- the makers are changing molecules to avoid laws. Of course this makes it even more dangerous to use. Please don't. ...Read more

If tested for: Neurontin (gabapentin) is a non-controlled/non-scheduled/non-addictive medication that is not metabolized by the liver at all and excreted unchanged by the kidneys/renal system. If there is a reason to measure the level, Gabapentin can be measured in the urine. Because it is not controlled there would be no basis for it to be part of a standard urine drug screen. ...Read more
Not Likely: It is unlikely that Neurontin (Gabapentin) will trigger a false positive urine test for drugs. However, if you are taking other medications then these medication may alone or in combination with Neurontin trigger a positive urine screen. Also, poppy seeds and other foods, fermented or otherwise may result in positive screen. Here's a reference: http://dig.pharm.uic.edu/faq/2011/Feb/faq1.aspx ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Hi I'm in a halfway house and I popped dirty for gabapentin in a urine screen. I didn't take it. What could cause this. I'm going to be homeless?
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. ...Read more

Poppy seed muffins: are a frequent cause for false-positive morphine urine drug screens. Poppy seeds can also be found in salad dressings, and on bagels. A GC/ MS test of your urine can quantify and definitively identify the substances in your urine. A low amount of morphine on the GC/ MS would most likely be from ingestion of poppy seeds. Talk to your physician about these possibilities. ...Read more

Usually quick: Gabapentin is one of the least likely drugs to have withdrawal symptoms, and if you do have withdrawal, it is usually over very quickly. If you went from 600mg/day to zero, you could go down to 300mg/day for a couple of days and then stop, or even go smaller to 100mg/day for a couple of days. This downward titration would help with withdrawal. ...Read more
