In brief: No

Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't affect emg/ncv result.
If you have specific questions about the test, please talk to your neurologist prior to the test.

In brief: NO

Emg testing is relatively unaffected by most drugs, and since, if properly done, shows quantifiable objective results which are either normal or abnormal.
Temperature changes do affect nerve conduction measurements somewhat, but this can easily be handled at time of testing (usual issue involves very cold hands in winter).

In brief: No

Neurontin (gabapentin) is used for treatment of nerve pain.
The EMG is a test which does not rely on your feeling pain to provide the answer to your nerve health.
