Is Neurontin (gabapentin) useful in the treatment of alcoholism?

Yes. Gabapentin reduces alcohol consumption and craving, which may help patients to maintain abstinence. These results, together with the virtual absence of side effects and a favorable safety profile, support Gabapentin as a potential drug for the treatment of alcohol withdrawal and dependence.
Maybe. Alcoholics often get peripheral neuropathies due to both alcohol and nutritional problems. Since the nerve pain might be painful or irritatingly tingling pins and needles, the neuron tin could be used to suppress the symptoms, but not a good tool to assist in discontinuing alcohol, based on incomplete research at this time.
