I was given a couple 400mg gabapentins from a friend for some migraines, I took them but found out that I will be having a drug screen and am worried that these pills can be detected, so please could someone let me know whether or not I'm worrying for nothing or if I have something to worry about, thanks

If you've given yourself at least a few days, odds are that it's less likely to show up under any sort of urine, saliva, or blood test. What's more risky in my opinion, is the opportunity for a false-positive to show up. Where as it can sometimes show that you took something completely different and then you're left trying to explain yourself.

The good thing is since most standard drug screens test for illicit drugs, controlled medications, and medications with a high potential for abuse, I highly doubt it will be tested for. Gabapentin is not a controlled substance nor is it an opioid.

Does anyone else have any thoughts or opinions regarding this?

The Gabapentin elimination half-life is 5 to 7 hours, so giving yourself a few days should put you in the clear. (of course don't quote me on that 100% since everybody is different and I don't know what test you will be getting). At any rate, if you are still very concerned have you thought about getting a temporary prescription for it from a doctor? With a valid script, even if drug test results come back positive, you can show that you are taking it legitimately.
