Gabapentin is the active ingredient, it is the generic for Neurontin.

I have taken gabapentin for about 18 or 20 months now. I took the orange capsule. When my pharmacist refilled it this time the yellow capsule was substituted. Two days after beginning the yellow capsule the muscles in my legs started hurting as they were doing before I started taking the medication. The neuropathy is causing my legs and feet to hurt. Long story short - the orange capsule worked, but the yellow has caused my old symptoms to return. My pharmicist with whom I talked was flippant and was not interested in helping me at all.

Hi Brenda the 400mg capsule of gabapentin is Orange and the 300mg capsule is yellow. Sounds like you received the wrong medicine, unless your Dr. Changed the rx.

I have been on the orange ones for about 3 months 2 capsules 3X's a day and they didn't refill my prescription on time so I went 2 days without it and the exact same thing just started happening. I can only compare it to growing pains & flu like symptoms. I've had fever all day, sweating hot as hades then the next sec I'm shivering so bad it hurts and NOTHING will get me warm. But then 2 hours will pass an ill be completely normal except that nervous jumpy feeling my insides get. I don't like this med at all.

Similar thing happened to me. When they gave me the newer Neurontin, the pain in my legs and back returned. I asked if I could have the older Neurontin instead. Was told they don't make it any more. So now I have to find something besides Neurontin.
