Can Gabapentin 300mg capsule be opened and taken with pudding? It is not extended release. Is it safe?

In brief: Gabapentin capsules

Gabapentin caps can generally be opened and mixed with jam, honey, or apple sauce without significant change in effect from swallowing the capsule whole.
A single dose should be mixed and then swallowed directly, not mixed in advance. if you're considering changes to your med regimen, you should always discuss with your prescribing doc first -- so give him/her a buzz & be well :)
