I was just prescribed neurontin (gabapentin). Is it more effective if I take with or without food?

5 doctors agree
In brief: Doesn't matter
Neurontin or Gabapentin is not dependent on whether you take it with or without food or even what types of food.
This study (http://1.Usa.Gov/n5ysd2) actually looked at this issue and did not find any statistically significant differences. Best to take as directed by your doctor. Neurontin/gabapentin generally is best when taken in divided doses throughout the day.
