Yes, Neurontin will show up on a drug test. However, Neurontin is neither illegal nor considered an abusive substance - so you will not fail an employment drugs test if traces of Neurontin are found in your system.

Will Neurontin show up on a drug test?
  • Yes, it will, but you will not fail the test as the tests are not looking for this kind of substance.
  • Neurontin is intended to treat epilepsy, and it is used to treat partial seizures with or without secondary generalised seizures.
  • This medicine is also used for the treatment of nerve pain (neuropathic pain) in adults, which is, for example, caused by diabetic neuropathy or following post-herpetic neuralgia (shingles).
  • It is also helpful for people with trigeminal neuralgia, a severe pain in the gums, lips, chin, cheek or eye due to a disorder of the nerves in the face.
  • Neurontin prevents seizures by inhibiting excessive electric activity in the brain. It does so by copying the activity of a neurotransmitter known as GABA.
If you are taking Neurontin and are expecting a drugs test, then it would best to take the packet and your prescription form to show the technician before the test. Any blood or urine test will detect Neurontin, but it will not make you fail the test.

Absolutely not. It's a non-narcotic pill and UA's are screening for narcotics and illicit drugs.
