Neurontin Addiction Related Topics

Neurontin is the brand name of the anticonvulsant drug gabapentin. Commonly prescribed to treat nerve pain, Neurontin soothes the symptoms of shingles, restless leg syndrome, fibromyalgia, sciatica and other conditions involving chronic neuropathy. However, easing nerve pain may not be the only way people use the drug. Taking larger doses of Neurontin than prescribed can result in effects similar to that of sedative medications and is never a safe idea. A habit of taking increasingly larger amounts of Neurontin beyond what’s prescribed can lead to a Neurontin use disorder that can be difficult to control.
