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: 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. ...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 more
