What does neurontin show up in drug test?

Anticonvulsant

Urine_drug_screen
Neurontin ( gabapentin) is in the class of anticonvulsants. I am not aware that it will cause a + drug screen. It does bind to the GABA receptor which is the same receptor a lot of sedatives affect. If you are getting +tests for something have the lab ck the calibration of their equipment.

What test is used to test soley for neurontin? I recently took a ten panel urine drug screen, can they pull out of that 10 panel screen? Please help

Doubt it

Neurontin
Nobody, as far as I know, is testing for neurontin, and there are no test kits designed for neurontin. If you are prescribed the drug, you have a right to take it. If you aren't, it is not a controlled substance. If you are using neurontin without a prescription, you need to talk to your doctor about a prescription for it. The klonopin and percocet, however, will likely show up.

will gabapentin show up on a drug test a benzo?

NO

Drug_testing
Gabapentin is an anticonvulsant, and is not a benzodiazepine. It is not known to cause false positives on drug tests for benzodiazepines.

Please I would like to know if neurontin shows up in a drug screen?

Not unless

Urine_drug_screen
they run a specific test looking for it. It will not turn up at all on a common urine drug test and will not cause any false positives.

Is it possible that the drug neurontin cause neuroleptic malignant syndrome?

No

Antipsychotics
I have not been able to find any data that says that it can. It has no effect on dopamine either, so it should not be expected to. Best wishes and happy holidays.

Can someone reference the studies that show that Neurontin is not a particularly strong AED for simple partial seizures as many clinicians believe?

Look at these

Seizure_disorder
I think the evidence is the contrary: Gabapentin (Neurontin) as Add-on Therapy in Patients with Partial Seizures: A Double-Blind, Placebo-Controlled Study. Epilepsia Volume 35, Issue 4, pages 795–801, July 1994. A double-blind trial of gabapentin monotherapy for newly diagnosed partial seizures. Neurology November 1998 vol. 51 no. 5 1282-1288.
